    one more reason not to buy Lilliput on Ebay

    so I saw this Lilliput on ebay.

    I had worried about them actually having them in stock, so I emailed electronicar and he assured me that they were in stock.

    I ordered it last monday (a week ago) and emailed the shipping department 3 days later as instructed because I had not recieved a tracking number yet. I finally got a response today (3 days after I sent the second email, 6 days after I paid) saying that the screens are NOT in stock, and they will not get them in until wednesday (10 days after I paid)

    The auction guarantees delivery within 3 working days, but it looks like its gonna be more like 2 full weeks. One more problem is that I am flying to Phoenix on friday and wont be back for 10 days. If they are true to thier word and it only takes 3 days, i'll just miss it and it will either sit on my doorstep for a week (and get stolen), or it'll get sent back to Hong Kong because I wont be here to accept delivery. either way, I'm REALLY ****ed at this guy

    Relax. Ask him to ship it after a certain date and he'll do that. I'm sure its difficult to estimate demand in a world market with buy-it-now. It took me a few extra days to get mine too, but rest assured it will be worth the wait.

    hay.. mine was a week late too.. but just relax, they said that shipping within 3 days meaning that once they ship it.. it'll come no later than 3 days. it is christmas time and they are an international company.. lots of orders. and they are also selling electronic equipment, they have to test it before they send it out. so just wait and i'm sure that u'll be happy with your new monitor.. i was very happy with mine.

    I ordered from the eBay guy, was going to order from cartft, but the website was down for a long time today. Of course, it finally worked about 20 minutes after ordering from electronicar. Hopefully it will not take too long to get here, but I can wait until the end of the week. If it's not here by then... I'll post back here.

    Now who wants to sell me Copilot Live after reviewing it?

    i think you missed the point.

    I wouldnt be angry about it taking 2 weeks to get here if he hadnt lied to me

    he told me that they were in stock, but the shipping department told me they werent.

    When I go away i have my mail kept at the post office so that its not building up, all you have to do is let them know and they will do it for you. Then you can pick it up when you get back

    It's actually cheaper (after shipping to the US) to buy from carTFT.com through his special link for mp3car members (search for Oliver's post). I wanted to buy it on Saturday, but his site was down nearly half the day... right after using "buy it now" on eBay, his site came back up

    I would have bought from carTFT.com, due to the positive feedbacks on this board, but the eBay guy also has pretty good feedback.
