  • Why you should only buy from the MP3CAR.COM store

    I just wanted to offer my opinion from experience.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that if you live in the USA, there is no reason not to buy from this site.

    This is why:
    - Support for the site - I have been using this site for 5 years, why not give a little back and support a small business tied directly to the owner/operator. Ziplock has never asked for fees and donations. I'm happy to give back anyway I can. I'm sure he doesn't make a huge profit from the store, but

    - Customer service - I had a small problem with my lilliput and he gave me several great options to replace it for free. He was quick to reply to my emails and I got the new monitor in days. I mean, why the hell would you want to go on ebay and deal with shipping (and communicating) back and forth with Asia. He is also an authorized dealer of lilliput (for warranty purposes).

    -Price - $290 for a lilliput with touscreen plus $8 shipping to NJ. Accepts credit cards and paypal. The cheapest I've seen this is $290 shpped off of ebay, but then again it's ebay.

    - Reliability - Ziplock personally opens every monitor and tests it out. Everyone knows how unreliable Lilliputs are, at least I know its not coming DOA.

    - Stickers - He is including free mp3car.com right now. This may be for limited time, so don't complain if you don't get one.

    I know that we have a huge international presence here and there may be more local distributers, but if you live in the States, definitely buy from the MP3CAR.COM store.

    I also know that alot of people like Digitalww as well. Armen has contributed much to this forum and has also helped resolve customer problems very well. On the other hand, the lilliput is $325 shipped their and you're not really supporting this site.

    Anyway, this is a long post. Again, I have been on mp3car.com for about 5 years now and have seen many people burned on ebay and recently with the lilliput.
    DO NOT COMPLAIN IF YOUR LILLIPUT BREAKS AND YOU BOUGHT IT OFF EBAY!

    Add some feedback and stories here. Ziplock, you should add more links to the mp3car store around the site/forums. I almost forgot about it when ordering my monitor.

      I bought my Opus 90w from Ziplock.
      Ziplock is a pimp.
      Mine needs to be updated.

        I plan on getting my touchscreen next week thru Ziplock. I was very impressed with his prompt response to messages when I had questions. Seems to earn the business he gets. Gotta respect that. Gotta patronize that.

            i would support.. but there isn't much of a selection of products that i need (ie an 8"+ monitor). so for now, my business will be taken elsewhere for no other reason than ziplock not carrying what i need.

                I have also bought from this site - both transactions were great. One package, the Opus was especially loved by my toddler because the postage was paid in 37c stamps and the whole box was covered with them! She loved that.

                Cant blame them for advertising on their own site!

                    I bought my Lilliput screen from here. It shipped out last Friday and arrived on the following Monday! Now that was fast.

                      Yes, i have to agree...I think he sits at his computer waiting for an order then drives 100mph to the post office lol. The shipping is damn quick, and I love the stickers...although I had to request them The one complaint I have is yes, there needs to be a bigger selection. Lol and he always puts like 23948723 stamps on the box which makes me know its a package from mp3car.com...makes me laugh. The prices are wonderful!

                      I'm glad to support this site by buying from here. Thank you very much ziplock for giving us a way to get what we want quick! (yes, plz try to get a 8" lilly on there ...and other things)
                      CarPC install is starting to come along again...

                        yeh, i had the 37c stamps too. THat was kind of wierd.

                        Ziplock, if you were smart, you would sticky this, don't be modest.

                          well, i know that i want to buy from this store, for sure

                          so uh, logic demands that there is a direct relation between the number of stamps and the promptness of the package's arrival...

                          would be nice if someone would post a picture of one of these boxes...it would make this post complete
                          don't let a day go by without finding some wonder in it...

                            Zip-lock just likes the taste of stamps! Doesn't buy the adhesive kind. Prolly has a book full of the lick-'em stamps. Probably has a tongue that could lick his eyebrows clean!

                            I shouldn't be saying all this, my Lilliput is coming next week. Not because of slow shipping, but because there's nobody home to get the package when it gets there.
