Amazon Orders never shipped?

Amazon Orders never shipped?

Yesterday, I ordered 2 USB 3.0 Hubs to use in a project I’m working. Today, I woke up with a notification of an undeliverable order, while the other one has a tracking code, yet it shows as not shipped but that would be delivered today: The only order I actually received is the 3 Vantec 12.7mm enclosures I ordered in the week. It’s interesting that when I click on the “Undeliverable” USB Hub, it says the order is being prepared:…

What happened to the AmazonBasics Standard 6-Outlet Power Strip?

What happened to the AmazonBasics Standard 6-Outlet Power Strip?

That is the question I ask myself. I was going to order an extra 2 of those, but it seems they are no longer available. I originally ordered these power strips back in 2017. They have been working as they should and even the “Protected” light is still up. I even ordered one bundle last year! Now, clicking on the items from the order history brings a 404 page. It seems that these item listings have been removed: It’s a…

My 2nd Batch of Used BDXL discs

On the past days, I wrote about having purchased an used spindle of 10 Verbatim BDXL discs. I mentioned that I had also ordered the same item again, but the used condition mentioned was “Like New”.

The “Used” Verbatim BDXL discs

The “Used” Verbatim BDXL discs

Hi everyone, Yesterday afternoon, I received the “Used – Good” Verbatim BDXL discs that I purchased last week. Today, we’ll see exactly what these discs really mean and if they are really used. First, we see the item arrived on a bag. Visually inspecting it from the bag it seems the packaging itself looks good. Indeed, it all looks good, except it isn’t really wrapped like new items are, so the spindle was actually opened already. The spindle package looks…

A spindle of 10 discs cost $41.88, while the Used condition was at $36.85….
