I have X62 and X210 bought from Jacky and all was correct. Delay was with X210 and mainly because Chinese New Year. I expected that he managed to send out before the holidays, but alas - it did not happen. Any way they are not a factory. They are small group of ThinkPadders and it is very probably that delays will occur.
It is understandable that delays can occur. What was totally unexpected is that there will be no communication after purchase. You wire them some money, and then you have to wait for some time in total suspense (it could be one month, it could be half a year), Jacky ignores all your messages, and then one day you get the call from EMS courier who is at your front door with your package... or not (rocketnine still did not receive their laptop, and it's been 4.5 months since payment and more than 2 months since the last response from Jacky).
That's why I created this thread: so that other people can look at it as the guidance of how long can it take. They cannot get this information from Jacky, but at least they will be able to get it there.

I have other experience with AliExpress. With combined shipping or hard to describe things they use simple description that can be understood by anyone - mainly custom guys. For example if he write geeky: "full barebone X230 with special nb51's M.B." someone on custom may read this like "Ticking time bomb"
Very precise and complex description is not the only alternative to the completely incorrect description. What could be easier than declaring "repaired used laptop"?
If anything, someone at customs, when X-Raying the package, may think that it's a ticking bomb since it is definitely not a motherboard which was declared.
I think they do right steps in right directions. ... Interactions with customers and even some warranty period. But i think they should strengthen Jecky with couple Thinkpadders who can help him contacting with us - foreigners
I don't see any post-sales interaction with customers. I don't believe in their warranty either. If Jacky ignores inquiries on whether they have already sent the laptop (especially when they did sent it) - inquiries that could be answered in a minute - then what will prevent them from ignoring your RMA request?
Ironically, Jacky **is** the person who is supposed to help modders contact with us foreigners. AFAIK Jacky is no modder, the only reason they're there is to sell 51nb wares to western customers. So you basically have an agent who was supposed to talk with foreigners and to keep with them in touch, but who does not quite speak English and ignores their inquiries, and the solution is to add another agent who will do all this? Why would we need Jacky then?
What LCD you have used to go to PVA. I have done some mods with AFFS (HX121WX4-120) and one mod with MVA (LTN121AP02-001). And as for me AFFS is superior. But, of course, they both better than any TN.
I think it was MVA. It was a long time ago. IIRC all the compatible IPS/AFFS screens back then were glossy.
