    Here's an example . I'm searching for "GTX 1070" and that thread is a hit. If the title didn't hit, then that list of sold items did. He doesn't have 1070s for sale anymore.

    Something I noticed in the rules, about avoiding scams, "do not accept a cell phone as a phone number". A lot of people don't have land lines anymore, I know I haven't had a landline for about 10 years now.

    I have tried searching for an answer to my question with no luck...

    How long should I wait after sending payment before reporting an issue to paypal for not receiving what I payed for? This person has basically dropped off of the forums and has not responded to his email...

    Really up to you; your assessment of the seller's character/reputation, your own risk propensity, and maybe a pinch of leniency because "things happen." I think it's completely fair to open a claim after 2 weeks if you still haven't received the product/s and there's been no effort by the seller to communicate with you. If the seller is new or has little heatware, I'd consider keeping him on a shorter leash with no more than 1 week without communication.

    I think that cleanliness should count towards product sells and user reviews. I can't tell you how product has been coming to me lately, not clean, dust, dirty, etc. That's ridiculous and we should be able to review folks on that. Maybe not a negative transaction so to speak, but we should all expect that when you're selling a hardware item it should be clean. If there are no consequences to that, then people are gonna keep shipping dirty shit.

    post it on their heatware...no one here is limiting what you can say on a heatware review.

    Shouldn't be limited at all to what you can leave in a review unless Google or reddit bought Heatware and I missed it :censored: :D

    Could always ask seller for detailed pics of the item before agreeing to purchase Vader. Dusty is one thing but dirty is another. Have some respect for your buyer and clean up the stuff you're selling before you ship it, people.

    I just had an experience very similar to this. Received a wearable that was advertised as “mint/barely used”. the screen was indeed in mint condition but the rest of the drive had dust and grime built all over the crevices and where the bands/wrist wraps would connect to the device.

    I understand that the concept of ‘mint’ might vary from person to person but I, as the seller, should not receive an item with the previous owners DNA on it, especially when it’s a wearable item. Is that too much to ask?

    I guess a neutral heatwave review is the most appropriate way of making it public so that other prospective buyers are aware
