Bought DFI nF4 SLI-DR 939 mobo, Opteron 165, Ninja HS, 2Gb RAM, 6800GS VGA card, sound/Lan card
bamavoo was the Seller   2010-10-21
1st of all, let me 1st say that I received everything from BAMAVOO, and everything tested fine. BUT overall I wasn't really satisfied with the transaction. I don't think this deserves a Negative BUT I also don't think that this deserves a Positive either.

Pro: everything tested OK.
Cons:
1. Packaging was totally awful. he stuffed every components in the Mobo box (except for the Heatsink which was in the original packaging), and then put the mobo & HS box in the bigger box without any padding or protection. You could literally shake the box, and hear that the two boxes rattled inside. Sure enough when I opened the box, the Chipset HSF was slightly damaged on the fins, and the CPU was partially off from the socket with bent pins. Fortunately, the CPU was OK. One of the "really tiny resistor chips" on the back of the VGA cards broke off from the VGA PCB, but the VGA card still worked OK, not sure of the impact on 3d gaming since this will be a non-gaming PC.

2. The motherboard was extremely dirty with dust everywhere, and the worse part was around the socket where there was plenty of "yellowish/orange sticky goo" that caused some of the dust to stick together around the socket like "ball dust" that couldn't be blown-off by air duster. The silver compound was also still everywhere on the CPU & the HS which made cleaning even more of a hassle.

3. I wish seller would provide a little more detail description on the items. For example, one of the onboard gigabit LAN ports was also bad, but there was no mention of anything in the description, except he included a 10/100 LAn card. The Ninja HSF also didn't come with any wire bracket for the fan, so I had to use zip ties to mount the fan.

Purchased 3 dvds.
bamavoo was the Seller   2003-05-12
One of the rudest people I've dealt with in several years on Anandtech. Purchased the dvds on May 13th via Paypal. Asked that he let me know when the dvds shipped. After not hearing anything for 3 days I wrote and asked if the dvds shipped. He said they did and that he would send me the confirmation number when he got home from work. I still didn't hear anything by the next day so I msg'd and asked which day he mailed the dvds. What followed next is the basis for this evaluation. He totally flips and tells me he shipped the movies and to "get over it". He also told me to look at this f'ing heatware. Now the confirmation number was back at work, not at home like he said the day before. I reply back that his response was out of line and that all I did was ask a simple question. His reply was another unprovoked tirade saying that he doesn't have to explain anything to me and that people have better things to do then worry about the F'ing forums. This eval is my reply.

Response from bamavoo
I was an ass that day. I was wrong and he was right. I am sorry for how I acted an I know better. He is a fine trader and I would welcome a second chance at dealing with him again.
