    Default Bad ebay seller techhood

    Purchased an RGB module from techhood which was not packaged well as such the dicros were snapped off.. sent them a message and they promised to send me new ones... have been going back and forth with them and still no dichros

    additionally purchased a 2W 445nm module that can't put out more than 1.2W no matter what driver I put it on...

    I gave up trying to get them to make good on anything

    Sorry to hear that...
    I've bought quite a few high powered LDs from them in the
    past without any issues. Perhaps things have changed recently.

    I have also got some bits and pieces from them, and as i recall no major issues.
    But to speak in general terms of Ebay-China stores.

    It is well known that they are stalling in fixing issues regarding sending new and fixing problems where there are cost for them involved. Always polite and promess to fix, but always one more question.
    Please send picture.
    Please send one more picture.
    Please invesigate with the postalservice.
    And it goes on.

    Only thing i can think of that make the action happen, is to give bad scores and feedback.

    stalling until you can no longer make an ebay/paypal dispute...

    oldest trick in the book.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    I seen that ebay seller techhood has 3 different sizes/styles of flexture mounts.. So I order 6, then 2 or 4, then 3.. I order a few of each style from techhood in 3 different orders.
    They were dirty and oxidized, very few looked clean and new, also, they were all the same thing, no difference between the 3 types that techood describes, EACH mount was MISSING one grubscrew.. I tried to reason and deal with them for a lonngg time, they would constantly say they were sending my missing parts, yet to again ask what I need.. I'd repeat myself, they would come back saying they have sent me my missing stuff and never could present a tracking number.. this repeated 4 or more times..
    I got one of the orders refunded by ebay while my pleading for correction was going on.
    (I learned that I should had first gone to paypal because the periods of time allowed would had been to my advantage.. once you start action under ebay you cannot goto paypal, they say..)
    I left them bad feedback on the two orders that I could with and they replied to it saying I was a competitor with a grudge...
    If the last time I sold (3 times) on ebay was probably six years ago and not even laser related, how can this even be so, ebay removed this BS feedback reply from them. techhood even said they would send me my stuff once I removed the negative comments. ebay told me that is extortion
    After all this techhood removed my ability to buy from them for Fk's sAke!

    The new eBay rules now give the buyer 180 days to file a claim from
    the 45 days previously.

    I can only speak from my own experience, but Techhood has always been the best of the bunch of the China sellers for me and I trust them, it's Laserlands who consistently misrepresents his products I won't buy from anymore.

    well they finally sent me replacement optics after I opened a paypal dispute, they are a different height so useless on this module... it was going to cost me $100 to return a $230 module to china so I give up

    will never buy from techhood again
