By whom?

 

You would have the same proof of payment as PayPal, or anybody else. PriceJapan is not the kind of company to 'take-your-money-and-run'. If they cannot fill your order they they would immediately notify you and issue you a refund like they would do if you paid by PayPal, too.

 

There really not any difference except that PayPal will charge you at least 3-4%, but hey, it's your money...I was just letting you know there is nothing bad, wrong or dangerous about using a Bank Wire.....that's actually a plus that PriceJapan allows this (Bank Wires) as it helps keep their prices the "Lowest in Japan", which is their logo and they live by it.

Well it was my first time ordering from them, I was worried incase anything went wrong. I mean what would happen if it got lost in transit. Would PriceJapan just hand my money back over? What if there were other disputes? I'm always wary about ordering from new places. Just because other people have a good experience doesn't mean I will have. I just felt safer with paypal, and was put off the bank transfer by a family member. Maybe I shouldn't listen to other people, I always get conflicting advice.:p 

 

If I order anything else from them I will consider a bank transfer. Don't think I can afford anything else now though.

I'm not trying to give you a hard time, just sharing my experiences and knowelege to help you, just so you know...

 

Regarding 'lost-in-the-mail': PJ ships with full tracking and insurance. No different than any reputable company does. Did you know PriceJapan has been doing this buisness since 2001? That's 13 years. They are very customer oriented...their whole buisness is with peeps like us wanting Japanses gear cheap. They survive on their reputation and word-of-mouth. In the future I would not worry one iota about doing buisness with them.

They seem like a legit company from the little I've read, but 4% of zx1 price if it gives you peace of mind, use PayPal. Not sure what the price is, but if it's $800,you pay $32 or so for peace of mind. 1 work week of Starbucks...

Any further news from people who applied the latest update from Sony. Anyone successfully root their player?

Is this pricejapan pretty trustworthy then? Just seem a little fake to me, with the way they sort of push you to pay via bank transfer, and credit card through Paypal which they then point out an extra 3.5% charge. Bank transfer is very risky IMO.

Try Borderlinx, you can buy in EU and they ship it to UK.

 

I used them before the other way (i am in germany) buying a sony player in UK....

sorry if already asked , but there is no charger other than usb? 

 

thx

post #5738 of 7502
That's the only charger you get
post #5739 of 7502

Yup - mine too.  Sending it back to Sony UK - who can't replace it as no stock and can't even back-order it?!?!?!?  Waited months for it in the Sony UK store and got to spend around 4 hours with it before it bricked.

I love the battery on these. I forgot to charge it and right now its at 6 % and been on battery for over 2 days. A good amount was idle but still a lot better than other HiFi daps
post #5741 of 7502

Battery life is excellent when in flight mode, not timed useage but can use for a good few hours between charges.

post #5742 of 7502

Isn't in flight mode the same as just turning the wifi and bluetooth off?

post #5743 of 7502
Yes it is. Shuts off basically all out going communications.
post #5744 of 7502

Well if you turn them off then there's not really much point selecting in flight mode. I normally turn them off. 

post #5745 of 7502
Agreed, I keep them off as well.
