    OT: Trade isn't going well

    I recently agreed to a trade @ AT forums and it hasn't turned out well at all. I trade 2 xbox games, a controller, and a headset for an Aspire 500w PSU, Tornado fan & blue 80mm led fan. Well his stuff arrived and the PSU has some serious issues. The sleeving has been exchanged for that crappy black stuff they use for septic systems. A few of the threads have been stripped on the PSU, meaning only one screw on the back of the PSU can be used to hold it to the case. Also, there is alot of "stuff" on the acrylic top of the PSU, which makes it look dirty, dusty, and just plain bad. I want to return the stuff but I am worried about getting bad Heat. What should I do?

    i personally don't see any reason to get negative heat from being unsatisfied with the goods you traded for.

    you'll probably want to try and resolve it with the other trader and keep documenting all the correspondence.

    good luck.

    I would ask for an immediate return/refund if the item is not as described to you. Do not worry about a negative heat retaliation as that can always be fixed. If I were you I would contact the person you bought it from and go from there. If he gives you an issue I would then contact an AT mod since the trade happened there.

    Hope that helps.

    P.S. Thread moved to bad traders section.

    Re: OT: Trade isn't going well

    OK thanks guys. I just PM'd him informing I will be sending it back to him tomorrow. I can't have a PSU held by one screw hanging over a $500+ video card and I can't consider this a good trade for me when the PSU looks the way it does.

    Well here is his response, I made him ship first for some obvious reasons:

    "They work fine, you should try thicker screws. It will not fall, you just need thicker screws. I would be very unhappy if you went back on this deal. I went through all the trouble of sending first, and you can't just back out now. The item works perfectly fine, you just need different screws. The power supply was in my system just days before I shipped it out to you."

    Personally I like how he keeps telling me it works fine, when I told him I didn't like the heavily abused look of it. And why wouold the threads be larger than a normal ATX case's screw other than they've been stripped. What do you guys think?

    If he has stripped out the holes and is advising that you use a larger screw and did not tell you that before you bought it I would definately ship it back. If the item did not come as described then you should not have to keep it.
