You should receive her reply in the next day if not on the same day. I will remind her today of your email.
For the record, I am not affiliated in any way with Wellcore and I am simply willing to help my fellow head-fi'ers who are interested in getting this card. Based on my experience so far, the seller is reasonable and will take care of the customers should any issues arise with the cards.
As to your question on buying ipod, from my experience buying faulty ones with known issue (sad face) is reasonably safe, as long as you confirm with the seller that the ipod had sound before the sad face appeared. I bought a few off ebay with that same issue and all of them work with drive swap. Most of my collection were bought in good conditions from my local Craiglist sellers. But these days the 5g's (5.5g's) become rarer and rarer showing at Craiglist.
Thanks. Not too bothered when I get a response as I'm just after a quote atm.
