I agree! I purchased this item: http://tinyurl.com/6ahqxl from inesun and i paid for it right away.
then i never heard anything, after emailing them a bunch of times i got a response saying it was some
festival and they wouldn't ship it until after it was over. first of all. that's ridiculous. if i sold
something at Christmas i'd still ship. Anyways, i told them i wasn't too happy about it and as there
was a language barrier to some degree i got something like "thanks you for your happy response! we
look forward to more good time business in future" or something along those lines. i'd say it was
some BS form letter, but it didn't even make sense. i kept emailing but it didn't matter. finally, a
couple days shy of a month later i get a notice that they've finally gotten around to shipping the
item. great so now all i have to do is wait another month. it took a long while, but it came eventually.
now.. i'm happy i have it, i haven't left feedback on ebay yet because i like to make sure everything
is "happy good times" before doing so, also threatening to leave bad feedback gives us some
leverage, although not a lot, it's something none the less.
so, the receiver is neat the camera is small. it looked just like the picture. however it didn't do
everything i was promised by description it would do! Now, one of the reasons i selected this model
was because you could use an HDD with it. i was under the impression i could mount a 2.5 laptop hdd
inside, so it'd be like a portable usb hdd with a screen, that i could watch movies, browse files,
listen to mp3's on as well as use it as it's original intended use. security. well, it had a tf slot at the
top for sd mem cards, which was as promised, but i couldn't put an hdd in it. upon re-reading the
description it didnt actually say i could put one inside, but it did say it supported SD, MMC
Card/HDD as well as: MP3/MPEG-4/AVI/ASF/ADPCM/MOV/WMV/WAV)
(JPG/JPEG/GIF/TIFF. go look at the description, in stating that it's 2.5" and supports HDD it
gives the impression it will hold one, maybe it's just me. anyways, it doesn't. It does have a usb port
on the side of the receiver unit however, which i assumed was for moving files off the internal
memory to a pc.. which it is.. sort of. when you plug it into a pc it says ""storage or update" which
would give the impression you can use it as i thought, in regards to storage, or upgrade the firmware.
moving on.. this unit did not play ANY movie types. i got it to play an mp4 file, which was already on
the internal memory as a demo. i added some files, mp4's, avi's, asf's etc. it also wouldn't view
pictures, ANY type. this of course was really the least of my worries as i didn't buy it to look at
pictures i can view on my computer.
so to say the least, i was very disappointed and emailed them telling them about how it doesn't work
properly and told them it doesn't play movie files of any type, all it does is display the wireless
cameras (at least it did that right) and record them. although that was another issue. i'd have it
recording and it would just shut itself off after 10 or 15 minutes.
after much correspondence back and forth and me getting more and more frustrated i asked if they could send me an updated firmware for the device as it apparently has the option as i mentioned when u plug it into the usb port of your computer. they gave me the run around on that then finally sent me a file. i thought finally, i'll upgrade the firmware and all the problems will be gone and it will work as it's supposed it.
they sent me a picture file converter. that's right. they sent me a program that converts any picture to some other format that the device can read.. which is funny considering the device is supposed to be able to read ANY picture file ANYWAYS. i was really pissed now. i mean i didn't give a crap about the stupid picture viewing function so finally i told them i was returning the whole thing and that i wanted a refund immediately.
they said they'd be happy to refund for me and thanks for my happy good time response! freaks. they told me i needed to use the cheapest method to send it back to them, which i of course was going to anyways because i wasn't expecting them to reimburse me the shipping fees after all i had already been through. well.. i told them the cheapest form of shipping didn't come with a tracking number, they said that was fine. my mistake.
i sent it a LONG time ago.. they could have received it 20 times over yet they tell me they never got it. i am so pissed off. i send them an email everyday demading my refund they tell me they will of course refund me when they receive it. man.. total BS. i'm sure they have it. i just don't know what to do. i spoke to ebay and they said that after 60 says there isn't much they can do and to top it all off after all my threats of leaving them bad feedback, i actually went to do that today finally.. and i no longer have the option to leave feedback for that item.
anyone have any ideas?? i mean jeez i spent quite a bit on that unit and went through a lot of BS with it only to come up empty handed and seperated from my money?
Don't deal with www.inesun.com they are scammers and procrastinators and will jack you the first chance they get. this has never happened to me EVER. i am a good ebayer but after this i'm afraid to buy stuff off ebay again!
