Okay I ordered my Vita on saturday morning, and I still havent been charged yet or any notification of packaging. Do you think they just didnt get around to doing it saturday (they had all day ;) ) and also didnt change anything today because it was sunday ? (no shipping on sundays)


or is there possibly something wrong with my order ?

I ordered a system last week and it didnt ship out for 4 business days(6 total). So its probably the norm.

Yeah I replied to CS form letter saying blah blah been silver member for several years blah blah spent thousands with bestbuy blah blah I expect more from a bestbuy company than a form letter etc.. Hoping for a favorable response. I really don't know why I want one of these systems. I know their drop like a rock in price when the PS4 comes out later this year. I should just wait but it's hard lol.

How accurate is the grading on these? This thread seems to be full of "I bought a 5 item and it arrived looking as though a flight of angels had guarded it direct from the factory" but I assume these are happy events and not the norm?

Was casually looking for a relatively cheap tablet for my kid and wondering how extensive I should assume things like "6 - light scratches" are, especially in terms of the screens. Hate to get something that looks like the last owner used it as a cutting board.

Grading is pretty good, I just received a 64 GB IPad I bought for my daughter who is about to turn 10 yrs old and the condition was practically brand new minus that it didn't come with any accessories (charger) below was the description when I bought it.

Apple MC822LL/A 64GB WiFi iPad
Condition: Pre-owned
Included: Apple Ipad 64gb Wifi
Not Included: Usb Cable, Power Adapter, Owners Manual
Product Grade: 5 - Some scratches and/or signs of use

I just got my white Vita in today.
It was a letdown after hearing so many good things about Cowboom. I had specifically selected a unit w/ a charger, (and pretty much all the white vitas were marked as having a charger) and paid the extra $30 for that and the color(Almost none of the black ones I saw listed included the charger). But when it came in today there was nothing but the Vita. They essentially sent me a brick unless I go out and buy one myself.

When I contacted customer service they told me there was nothing they could do and that I should "read the description more carefully next time." despite the fact that I triple checked as I was checking out. So now I can either buy a cheap charger off eBay or return the Vita and hunt around for another deal. My GF, for whom the Vita was ordered, is pissed at the deception and shitty service and wants to do the latter. I'm pretty laid back and would rather do the first option and move on rather than bother with the return process.

Obviously YMMV but I won't be buying from cowboom anymore since I clearly can't trust their descriptions of essential components or for their customer service to do the right thing.

you should have pressed for a partial refund to go towards getting a charger cause it was in the discription

Haha, yeah she won't take shit from anybody. It's especially impressive since she's barely 5'0 yet has more wrath than an angry giant.

In the meantime, we have 30 days to return it, so I can try to find a comparable deal and we can share my cable and enjoy Monster Hunter. Maybe I'll luck out and get a good assassins creed bundle on amazon warehouse.

You might want to check sears if you have one nearby. The charger and other accessories were going for $2.97.

All the stories of gloom and doom are making me think twice about purchasing a PS3 from here. Anyone buy a PS3 and not have it end horribly? Thinking about getting a 250gb or 320gb one for myself but don't want to go through the hassle of returning it and whatnot.

Go through amazon warehouse man, I just got a brand new AC 3 500 gb bundle for $200 even (the box was a little beat up but it was sealed and everything inside was brand spanking new) its kind of the luck of the draw and timing, but I'm 3 for 3 with them on consoles. What kind were you looking to get and price range? I'd def go with amazon warehouse, almost daily they put up 250-500gb PS3s ranging in price from $160-$260, it's just all about timing, only go with very good or like new, mine was posted as very good but turned out brand new. It took me about 3 days of hunting and patience since they go almost as soon as they are put up on the good deals but its worth it.

everything, has risks if they didnt they would sell for a lot more. Case in point, I received two straight broken 250gb super slims from AWD. Actually broken, as in missing chunks of the plastic, and it wasnt a UPS thing either, thats how they shipped them out.

Was looking to spend $130~$160. Don't want to go higher than that. lol I frequent the Warehouse Deals on Amazon but haven't found much under $200. The ones I do find are missing a bunch of stuff. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

After a less than stellar experience with their customer service, but an eventual resolution of a nicely shipped Vita, I ordered a PS3 Slim w/ GoW and MoH: WF.

Came in original packaging. Only had games & console. Was cheap to buy a AC cord and I already had HDMI. Both games sealed and unopened. Console looked new. Very pleased.

Received my grade 5 60GB PS3 yesterday. It definently deserved a grade 5 but to find a BC PS3, this nice looking, for $175.xx was well worth it.

The fat PS3, especially the 60GB with all the chrome, looks so much nicer then my slim.

Got my grade 5 Vita in and it's flawless. Everything included except the sim card package. The box was a little beat up, but who cares about that. I uploaded some pictures so you can get an idea of what I mean. BTW the spots are just dust.
