    Default Keep (far) away from Pandora Battery Buys

    I placed an order with www.pandorabatterybuys.com for a Pandora battery (the one that can also be used as a normal battery) and a 1GB memory stick that was to be pre-loaded with 5.00 m33-6. Well, it took 2.5 weeks to arrive from Hong Kong. They list their office in St. Louis and the shipping time to be 7 days. In extreme conditions "14 days". Guess mine was extreme since it took 17 total (Includes their 1-3 days processesing).

    Well, thats not why I'm pissed. I'm pissed because they sent me a fake Ebay Memory Stick pro (imagine that, fake memory card from HK), that was not only blank, but could not be read or formatted in the PSP. I formatted it on the PC and the PSP still wont read it. Its probably a 32MB card that has been "changed" into a 1GB. Either way, stay away from them. I sent them a nice email pretty much telling them to go to Hell. Just passing the word around here, since I found the link to them on one of the adverts on this site.

    Yeah, Pandorabatterybuys as well as other sites have a rep for slow shipments, little to no support and fake stuff. Try getting a refund from them and use your money on better sites.

    I agree with you, though my shipping date wasnt late (that i can remember) i ordered just the datel tool with a 4gb that was suppose to have the CFW on it but it turns out that it was a fake 4gb memory stick. Oddly enough, they didnt TOTALLY screw me. It wasnt magicgate supported so i coulnt even make it s MMS because the IPL wouldnt install but it is a 4gb card and once i used a very old 256mb card to install 5.00 m33 on my fat psp i use the fake card for everything after that such as all my homebrew, ISOs, ect.

    Yes they did screw you.. A fake card is a fake card. Its going to crap out on you sooner or later. I'm not saying to get rid of it, but expect issues.

    Yeah, I'm going to see if they reply to my email and then demand a refund for the price of the memory stick. The battery worked, so I have no problem paying for that and the shipping. I imagine I'll use the memory stick to put under one of the legs of my kitchen table to keep it from wobbling. That's about all its good for.
