You know, it would be nice to send a customer e-mail that his Zaurus was send. I don't think that I expect too much.
And that: "- Answer quickly to ALL e-mail" isn't true

Especially if you are new customer and you just posted in a forum to drum up new business. That is why I went with the streamline/trisoft combo for my latest Z. They were estabilished and stephen answered *all* my mail (and there were lots). I've been bitten by bad etailers so I don't mind spending the extra money. I'm not affiliated with those guys BTW and I've heard good things about pricejapan.com and conics.net too.

I was going to buy from princejapan. They answered my e-mails. Then I saw that loloc is selling Zauruses (flashed for free) on ebay so I thought it would be faster. I've send him couple of e-mails. He answered. After payment he answered only one of my emails.

at least one guy got a Z from directfromjapan here:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=183&st=15 (in french)

I have not followed directfromjapan closely but I think it's just one (french) guy that started to sell Zaurus privately and then decided to go pro.

Maybe he is away for sometime, or maybe he is the kind of vendor that wrongly think that it's better to go low profile if something delays the order rather than explaining why.

Paypal.

well, you can raise a dispute with paypal and get your money back - I did, for a lost mobile phone accessory. and if you paid paypal bill with credit card, you can do a chargeback on that.

golden rule with paypal - never have any money in the account!

And it's still no here. What can I say? Go for pricejapan, you will have to wait 2-3 days, not 10 (and still counting).

oh so sorry to hear it's still not there.... mad.gif


OK now my experiences with directfromjapan / loloc on ebay.

i bought two zauruses from him on ebay, first one for my friend but then i fell in love with this thing and got quickly another for myself. lol. i chose loloc because i already bought one from him. dunno why my friend originally chose him - probably the low price! that was the other factor in my choice too hehe. both of the zauruses are C760's. mine is perfect. got it in like three days, amazingly fast. the first one got here in a week or so.
as for the warranty. i found out a few more things about it. my friend's zaurus has a dead pixel and he wanted to have it exchanged, loloc told us it can't be done for just one pixel. nvm as my friend sorted it out in another way (has some friend at Sharp) wink.gif it also has some problems with the backlight, but he minded the pixel more than that..
mine is perfect, hope it will remain that way! because i learnt that the unit has to be sent to japan. no shipping costs from japan back to my home. but you have to pay the cost to send it in. (same cost policy with my bsquare phh which has a german only warranty on it.. had to send it in once, but it wasn't a bad experience..)
ah i almost forgot, the units came directly from japan (yeah directfromjapan) but no vat or duty ... wink.gif sender was tricky enough hehe.

all in all i think he isn't unreliable, but does seem a newbie at this business. i don't say you shouldn't buy from him, if you need a cheap C760 which is like brand new (not brand new but you could think so when looking at it), directfromjapan is a good option.

Oki, I've got it at Friday. But ... I asked it to be flashed to Cacko or PdaXRom (whatever will be possible) and it's Sharp Rom. So why it took so long to send to me I will never know. And I'm going to ask loloc about it. That was one of my reasons to buy from him.
I unpacked it and when I saw how small Zaurus REALLY is i couldn't belive. I still don't belive smile.gif

I bought my Zaurus SL-C1000 there and it took 1 week to come from Tokyo to my little house smile.gif

For the replies to e-mail yes it's true they didn't reply to me neither.

But my Akita is here ... and not overpriced.

I asked loloc. He wrote that it was a mistake.
The most important thing is that it's here. I will flash it myself - I haven't done it yet.
And I'm in love at first sight smile.gif

cmonex: I will PM'u biggrin.gif

I found my Zaurus here http://www.geekstuff4u.com/index.php?cPath=24_53
There was no PayPal feed, I receved my pda in English one week after I order it and I did not even have to pay the VAT wink.gif
Because the price is so much better that this other site:
