    well it doesnt have to be OCZ but check this for £145 each not so far off £130 for a quite a big boost. I hope to be picking up one later this week or the next

    DHL regularly pawn off work to HDNL that they cant be arsed to do themselves.

    I have booked a load of couriers using parceltogo. most of the time I send it by DHL. but DHL send you to 'Yodel' as DHL only deal with corporate clients and not home deliverys - home deliveries are Yodels job. but if Yodel dont want to do it. they hand you over to HDNL which hires any tom dick or harry that can drive a van.

    Twice Ive had HDNL come pick up goods up for deliveries. and both times the same driver was on the phone speaking polish or czech to one of his homies while picking my gear up.

    Most of the monkeys they hire are just rude and useless.


    Yodel is a subsidary of DHL mainly dealing with general consumers.

    Nope, don't need the google earth plug in for that; I do street view and everything without it. Honestly, the only plugin you really need is flash; and maybe flashblock if you're wary about flash. I don't even use Java.
    Foxit reader is absolutely amazing; it's one of the apps on my standard install list (when I do someone's rig, it's one of the things I always install). But without the firefox plugin, of course.

    cheesy send your PSU back in a plastic bag/binliner to OCZ (should cost about £12 as i sent exactly the same PSU as you) and they will send you a nice shiney new one, and will be a Stealthxtreme 2

    Who is it? You know you can claim postage costs back as compensation? You get half of your postage costs back if it's a day late. That's with parcelforce anyway.

    Softwing0777, No response for 6 days, no tracking no, charged £14.99 shipping for a '48Hour service' not happy here :mad:

    he seems to have many reviews with 'great communication' but i fail to see how ignoring 2 emails, 3 ebay messages and 20+ phones calls to a not working number can be considered good communication

    Whether it's his fault or not, you should expect compensation.
    What I would do:
    EDITED TO REFLECT UPDATED SITUATION:
    If he has shipped it, and it's late (at the courier's fault) tell him that he can claim a percentage of postage costs back as compensation and that you expect to get the money that he claims.
    If he tries to say "I'm not intending on claiming" then say "this hasn't been a very pleasurable experience. I paid for a service that I didn't receive and it's on you to see that I am compensated. I'm still umming and aahing about what to put in your feedback."

    But then, I'm just a hate-filled b*stard that expects everyone else to live up to my standards :laugh:
    Bo$$ says thanks.

    I usually use the 'add the tracking number' option to anything i send out in ebay so the buyer can track the package too.

    what was his excuse?
