I pre-paid ... order took about three weeks after I sent the check (which should have arrived within 3 days). Sounds like a one-man show, don't believe a word they say relative to when they'll ship it out, etc. If he doesn't have the LCD you want in stock, he won't tell you but will instead keep telling you he's going to send it the next day.
It probably is not legal that's for sure ... but nobody can necessarily prove much, as he just seems to ignore any requests/inquiries until he physically receives the item. I'm convinced that by not having any online/phone ordering, he can use the excuse "oh, I didn't receive the check until ... " to buy himself more time to "find" more displays. Bottom line is the guy is a rat, but if you've got plenty of time (and I do mean plenty) to wait for a display, then it's a relatively good deal - I've never heard of anyone not ever receiving their display, but I would not be surprised if I heard that, either.
