I ordered it yesterday, apparently there was a 10% price increase today? Crazy timing.

Finally, finally, finally, got paid today for my first "trial run" of these high TiVs.

So I sent the package in on Sept. 17th (a day or two after the higher values appeared), it arrived on Sept. 24th, and finally got paid out on Sept. 28th - so nearly 2 full weeks end-to-end. Now I have 3 more packages on the way with 2 more to send Monday.

I got $90 for 2 complete and 1 brand new (still sealed) GBA games. My complete ones were pretty much pristine - like they had just been opened. I had even kept the little baggies that the carts came in.

Being obsessive about having complete copies in excellent condition once again pays off :lol:.

FWIW, the current TiV for the 3 games I sent in would be $9.45 (total)...

I decided to use the credit to get complete copies of a number of games in my NES collection. It's the kind of thing I rarely spend much money on so this seemed like a good way to do it. Navigating Amazon marketplace has been a bit frustrating at times, but I've gotten some good deals there.

Waiting on two of my loose NES carts to clear. Hopefully I don't have another "major damage" rejection.

Well, my PSone got denied as 'not working'. I tested it with 2 games before I shipped it out. I had to use 2 games to make sure all of the controller buttons worked. I have 10 or so more items to ship today and then I think I am caught up.

Good card, I own it. Does great up to 1920 x 1080, though newer stuff might give it some slight fits.

I would have a chat with Amazon CS over that one, especially due to its value.

I hope you recorded the serial number of it and took some pictures of its condition, as I think you might not be getting back the same one you sent them. If you tested it and it worked OK and it magically "doesn't work", then I think something's up with that.

Yeah, I have pics of the item and how it was packaged. I know I physically wrote down the serial, but I am not sure if the pic of it came out. I'll contact them one I get it back. The nice thing is I locked it in at Good, so I may get the higher value for it (rather than the $60 I was expecting).

Replaces 2 9600GTs i had in SLI. Might get a 2nd if its not good enough for what i need it for (1900x1200 but not many new games)

Forgot I need a blu-ray burner, so assuming next batch of 3 ps1 ($90) and still-to-be-sent 4 GCs for $120 gets accepted, i should have that covered too :D

Just for the record, did anyone have a cart only game paid out at 'good' condition?

I locked in some of my trades as 'return the item', but I am not sure I should bother sending them in.

Fyi, mine got denied for the same reason and I also tested before I sent it in. Can't wait to get mine back to see what condition it's in.

Traded in some things and shipped them all together. I have already been deposited some credit on some of the items but my email worded it like the other items have not been sent...the items say "processing"....should I worry or just let them process and be patient?

I'm going to use my (hopefully ~$700) Amazon credit on deals, definitely, though I'll also help my brother out with buying art supplies and whatnot, just because I'll be able to. :)

Just be patient. You only have cause for concern if a transaction remains "Processing" for at least a week without changing.

I did one trade on my wife's account but the problem with that is that the credit will just disappear into ephemeral Kindle books. I mean, I suppose that is better than using real money for that, but on the other hand the thought of my meticulously maintained Gamecube Mario/Pikmin/Starfox games turning into disposable e-books is a little irritating ;).

I'd just be worried about some idiocy with a working system magically turning into not working. Just make sure you have a backup plan in place.

2 560 Tis work well in SLI from what I've seen. I own only one of them, as I don't have a SLI-capable PC. Single GTX670 would also be a good option over a pair of 560 Ti cards.

It still money you're not spending, and yes, it's an the expense of your GC games.

Main reason for SLI for me was more to have 3 monitors setup, more than performance. Only have 2 now, so 1 card good enough for now =]
Since i play more console games than PC, a $130 card should be good enough.

More reports of psone's being rejected makes me feel a little better about not risking sending in my new one.

I'm close to the new facility so the item came back to me today. I retested it and it went to the CD player screen. I rebooted and it worked fine. Swapped games and it booted fine again, so maybe it is dying slightly. But it only went to cd boot screen once. I pulled up the chat and asked if there was anything I could do and they said I could resubmit under current trade value but that's about it.

They also looked it up and said I had incorrect controller and that is my fault, it's official but not white. I had a 2nd trade for the console as I was going to pick up a 2nd one if my first was accepted. I may dig out the white controller and send it back to see what happens. And yes, I included the box and unopened instruction manual and unopened a/v cables. Both were returned to me unopened.
