I've found PB Tech to be quite good on deliveries over the years. The only time things went slow the other week was I didn't pay by CC and used online bank payment and it took a couple of days for them to process the order..

I've always paid by CC and, up until the last two orders, I also found them fast and efficient. However, they've dropped the ball big-time now and don't even answer email queries regarding the status of orders and the reasons for delays.

Just an update...

My order (placed last Thursday morning at 7am) for those "in stock, ships today" fans is still "picking" -- three working days (five actual days) later.

I think we should run a sweepstake as to when/if they will actually ship.

My bet is that it won't be until next week (if then).

Oh, and I sent a link to the column I wrote to PBTech "management" in an effort to shift things along. Clearly they remain unconcerned about the quailty/levels of service (LOL) and, for some reason, my order history (aside from this current order) seems to have been deleted since then.

Dodgy or what?

Shock horror... only FIVE working days later, I have a tracking number from PBTech.

So in PBTech's world, "Ships today" means "ships in a week".

If they'd said "ships in a week" I'd probably have ought elsewhere (because noisy fans drive me crazy) but if they were honest then I'd make other non-urgent purchases from them. Dealing with a dishonest company does not inspire one to part with significant sums of cash though.

Package finally turned up -- although the courier delivered it to the neighbour's house this lunchtime... not PBTech's fault.
