  • I was the seller. 3 HDD's, CPU i7-7740X, Enermax CPU cooler.

    nanoscale was the Buyer on January 21, 2020 AnandTech

    Communication back from him was slow as well as payment. We agreed that I would ship first and when I sent him the tracking number he would mail me a check. I sent him the tracking number on Jan 21 at 3:30, I received a money order yesterday Jan 29.

  • I bought a $40 hard drive.

    nanoscale was the Seller on November 8, 2013 HardForum

    I PM'd this trader an offer for a hard drive on 11/5 which he declined. He PM'd me on 11/9 accepting my original offer. I sent payment on 11/9. He PM'd me with tracking info on 11/14. When the USPS hadn't updated by 11/16, I asked if he had actually shipped it. "I shipped it as media mail to save shipping cost since I sold it dirt cheap, so it will take longer and the tracking number is not reliable such as Priority or Express service. Please be patient."

    In other words, this cheap chump would rather make you wait weeks for your stuff to arrive than spend a few bucks on appropriate shipping methods. Hopefully the USPS pursues him for violating their media mail regulations.

    Response from nanoscale
    That was USPS fault not me as I shipped hdd same day you had paid for it, and tracking number showed that it was delivered within 7 days.

  • I bought a used, lapped e5200.

    nanoscale was the Seller on June 21, 2010 HardForum

    Shipping was prompt. The item was wrapped in an adequate amount of bubble wrap. I can't leave positive feedback because the processor still had thermal paste on it including on the contact side! I cleaned it very thoroughly with arctic two-part solution; luckily it worked. It was also shipped in a bag that accumulated static charge when I touched it. Everything worked and I would buy from nanoscale again, but next time I will demand pictures and not assume that everyone will take the same care that I would.

  • I purchased a used Razer Imperator mouse from nanoscale on Techpowerup.

    nanoscale was the Seller on July 17, 2011 techPowerUp!

    I placed a "Want to Buy" ad on Techpowerup on Sunday, July 17th. I stated in my ad that my Logitech G5 mouse was having issues (second time I've had the same problem with a G5 mouse) and that I was looking for a Razer Imperator mouse as a replacement which I needed ASAP. If no one had one, I said in the ad, I would just buy one new from an online retailer the next day.

    Nanoscale contacted me via PM and offered me a great deal on a Razer Imperator - $45 shipped. I thanked him and asked him for his PayPal address. He responded with his PayPal address as well as a link to a cached ad from another forum that had pictures of the mouse along with some other items he was selling. I sent the payment right away but didn't hear anything back from him for a day. I saw that he was online frequently and browsing the forums so I sent him a PM at around 4:00PM the next day (Tuesday) asking if he had a tracking number for the mouse. He didn't respond.

    I watched as he continued to browse the forums some more that evening and the next morning. I sent him another PM on Wednesday morning and told him that I would leave him bad heatware feedback and file a PayPal dispute if he didn't actually respond. That seemed to get his attention. I thought it was pretty rude that he didn't acknowledge my payment or give me any update on the status of the mouse (which again, I said in my ad that I needed ASAP or I would just buy one online) and I told him all of this. He responded that he had mid-term exams and a new-born baby at home so that's why he hadn't answered my PMs, acknowledged the payment or given me any tracking information.

    That seemed to be a legitimate enough excuse for me but I asked him anyway why he hadn't gotten back to me yet I had seen him frequently browsing the forums. He responded that he had "gotten a new phone and was merely connecting to the forums to test his internet connection speed on it". He also said that his phone's screen "was too small to read any PMs". Obviously, this was BS. He only had a phone to check the forums? He wasn't actually browsing them, he was testing his connection speed? What kind of new smart phone doesn't have a zoom feature anyway?

    He updated PayPal with a tracking number on Wednesday from a shipping label which he printed out online. He told me that the mouse was shipped. The tracking info obviously never updated.

    On Thursday I sent him another angry PM and he cancelled the shipping label in PayPal and updated it with a new one. That night he finally shipped the mouse out.

    What really bothered me was how this guy ignored my PMs and kept browsing the forum until I had to threaten him with a PayPal dispute or a negative heatware rating. He obviously lied to me and he didn't ship the item out until Thursday night when I clearly stated in my ad that I needed the item shipped out on Monday. He also insinuated in a PM to me that the $45 I paid him for the mouse was hardly worth his time. Why would he even offer to sell the mouse for $45 if he felt that way about it?


    In his defense he gave me a great deal on the mouse and included the retail packaging as well. It was packed well and the mouse is in excellent condition, hence the neutral feedback instead of negative.

    In the future I would appreciate it if people didn't do business like this. If he couldn't ship the mouse out on Monday he shouldn't have responded to my ad and I certainly don't appreciate his lame BS. I would not recommend him to other buyers for this reason.
