Is Jacky responding to anyone else?

#1 Post by surfbro » Fri Sep 10, 2021 10:18 pm

Hey all, I purchased another x210 from Jacky around June 1.

Jacky said they had 1 machine left (then I also someone posting a similar promise on Reddit I believe).

Since then I've been getting, 'The machine hasn't left Hong Kong, once it does you will get a tracking" for the past 2 months from Jacky,

Not sure if anyone else is in communication with Jacky, or received a device in the past month, but I'd like to hear from others to see what's going on.

Take care

I emailed him last week and he said he had one 3rd generation x210 board with the i7-8650u left. Is that what he told you, or was that a different one? Had some emails back and forth clarifying what the specs for a full laptop would be and he was pretty quick to respond. It then took a couple days to figure out a way to pay him that worked--he said he believed it was a Chinese govt restriction, and then one time he missed a digit in the ID. Anyway he said he'd let me know when he could ship. That was the last I heard and it was probably Sunday or Monday. As for the 10510U, he said "No have the 10510U yet".

So I guess we're in the same boat now, but you've been in it longer.

For comparison, I ordered an X2100 from Xue Yao at the beginning of January 2020 and received it in July 2021. Of course, that includes six months when the boards weren't available yet. But I've heard similar times from people who ordered X210s a couple years back from Jacky, so I wasn't really surprised, just disappointed it didn't end up being faster, particularly considering I heard of other people who ordered later than me getting their machine first. But maybe they chose a less high res display or something that made theirs quicker to finish, or maybe he just felt like finishing theirs first. Who knows.

Okay, yeah Jacky told me that I was to receive a 10510U, so I guess he's keeping his story straight for the time being.

I did receive a laptop from Jacky on a previous order before June, and that was about a month-month and a half to receive. However I placed this order I'm waiting on right after I received the first one, beginning of June, and we are in September.

I was now just told by a response from Jacky a few days ago that many laptops were 'seized' at customs, but he is shipping another one to me? I never heard a case where anyone was scammed, so I don't think that's happening, but at least Xue Yao was more honest with the times, and better to respond than Jacky. It's a tad frustrating is all...

I'll add my name to the list. Paid him for an X210 that he said he had in stock on August 6th, last message I received from him was on August 11th.

I've emailed a few times asking how stuff is going, but not feeling terribly confident at this point.

Yeah, I had this problem awhile ago with Jacky and a X63, try messaging him on WeChat- lcdfans

He was much more responsive there, sometimes responding within 20 minutes. Beware that WeChat is spyware, so use an unimportant device.

cheers :]

Any tips for registering for WeChat? It wants me to get someone else with an account to scan a QR code and I don't know anyone else with WeChat.
