With datavision and hawk confirming pricing errors/oos. What's the word with Aztek?

and congrats to those with the buy.com orders, lucky bastages.

Like I said, you'd better watch what you call foolish; you may find, one day, that it was yourself.

Answer my question

I did my cancel via email and the guy cancelled immediately not really citing any information, but said that he appreciated my understanding. It may be that he ships out the drives that he has and one more of you get a drive since I cancelled mine. Hard to say.

He, also, immediately returned my Paypal.

Hmm I see, I guess i'll let it sit for a week maximum. I read reviews and there's a lot of complaints about them holding onto people's money claiming the item is on back order for up to a month, with the ultimatum of filing a dispute just to get their money back.

Well if they get too many complaints or charge backs they can't take credit cards anymore so I'm sure they refund within 3 days.. A company can only get like 6 charge backs then they can no longer take credit cards, that would be really dumb on theri part I'm sure you will be fine...

Any news on the orders from Aztek? My two orders for one each of the $5x.xx priced drives hasn't progressed since last night, not past the initial order emails.

I still have no update at all from hawk express. Just the original "order received" email from last night.

Does it say "In Transit" according to Fed Ex? I got a shipping confirmation this morning at 8AM but it's still in the "Initiated" phase according to Fed Ex tracking.

Literally seconds after my previous post my Fed Ex tracking updated to "In Transit" and the SSD is in Lewisberry PA right now. Should't take too long to get to Cleveland from PA! I can't wait!! Too bad I only ordered one though...DRAT!

Did you pay with a Credit Card?
I never got an update from them either...just the cancellation notice from PayPal....I'm guessing that if I had used my CC, I still would not know that it was canceled...

I just got an update from Hawk Express canceling my order. It also confirms that PayPal will be refunded and that credit cards will not be charged. I verified and my CC was not actually charged. Oh well, can't say I didn't try.

Got an order cancelled from Hawk.express. They did send out a 10% off code for future use on their site, which was nice of them.

I'm looking to make about $100 per unit probably, which is still not a ripoff to people buying from me (the lowest price is $315 on google products). Figure around $160 shipped via USPS priority. It all depends on market saturation and whether or not I decide to sell on ebay.

I'm not sure how many I actually got yet - it appears that only my first 2 are on the truck. One of those is going to a very close friend as a gift, and the other one is going to another friend for the price I paid ($60).

If I get the other eight, I will definitely flip them.

Ah, now I did receive a notification that "the item you have requested is currently out of stock." (Despite the fact that it said it was in stock when I ordered) And I likewise got a 10% off coupon included in the email.

Kind of ironic that datavision through buy.com, who everyone thought would be the least reliable and the absolute worst rating ever (>1), seems to be the only one fulfilling at least some of the orders. I guess they got to the stock from the distributor first.

Fedex tracking says it was picked up in ELLENWOOD, GA and is in transit. Should receive by 4/6.

Mine are out for delivery today. Unfortunately I will be at class and most likely unable to sign for it.

But hopefully they aren't like 40GB drives or something...I will post here as soon as they arrive.

I wonder if the vendors called fed ex to have the packages rerouted back to their warehouses.

Am I reading this right from the links on buy and amazon? They're over $500.00 and over $400.00 respectively? That's a crazy price!!!
