I like posting reviews, so I guess I'll post my experiences with Insomniac.
I've been looking around for a Sony SA5000 for about two weeks and was pretty much ready to buy one new from Buy.com when I went to the For Sale forum for fun. I noticed Insomniac's thread. He was selling a SA5K in mint condition.
I immediately sent Insomniac a message on Thursday, August 4th, 2005. Insomniac didn't have any photos of the item so I asked if he could post some up. I also told him that I wouldn't be able to pay until Monday, August 8th, so if someone picked up the headphones before I did, I was fine with that.
Insomniac replied swiftly, saying that he would be able to reserve the headphones for me for as long as I needed
. He also told me that getting the photos would be somewhat difficult. I told him that I didn't need the photos that much. A day later, he went through the trouble of taking the photos anyways
Insomniac was very patient with me
. I sent the money order on Monday, August 8th as promised. USPS, however, wasn't cooperating as swiftly as we would have liked. Wednesday passed, Thursday passed, and Friday passed. I was getting extremely worried! But Insomniac told me not to worry
. The money order arrived on Saturday. *whew*
On Monday, Insomniac promptly shipped off the headphones. WOW! What a quick delivery; I received the headphones just two days later, Wednesday!
The headphones were packed with all the original documentation and packaging. The box was placed in a HUGE box with TONS of bubble rap and peanuts for protection! Wonderful protection and thoughtful packaging.
Amazing! Insomniac is a really great person. I would glady do business with him in the future again.
- Great communication and swift action
- Very patient
- Great packaging
This is the first time I've used the For Sale forums here on Head-Fi.org, and it was an awesome experience.
