Sent a 365XD to LarBob last week. He let me know when it got there and the whole thing went really smoothly. Good guy to deal with.

Hi Everybody,

I wanted to say that I had a recent dealing with ThinkRob and I wanted to say the description was accurate of the machine, the package was delivered very quickly & packed very well. In the box there was a dock for the machine that was a surprise to me since it was not part of the deal. I love good surprises! :banana:

Also he offered to help me when I would be loading Linux on the machine. I will be loading Fedora 27 soon (from his recommendation), so I might take up his offer for his time & assistance.

If you ever have a buy or sell from ThinkRob, rest assured it will be a pleasant one.

Thank you,
John

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to say that recently I had the pleasure to deal with RealBlackStuff. As always he is a great person to buy from or sell to, as I have done over the past few years.

I experienced very quick messages from RBS and he gets the package out very quickly. For the item itself, he used 2 layers of bubble wrap, one enclosing the item (like in a bag) and a layer around that inside the re-purposed box. I love it when someone recycles something for another purpose or use.

My thanks goes to him.

Thank you,
John

I have made two purchases from TuuS that have gone very well. TuuS is honest and straightforward.

A year ago I got a heatsink/fan for my T61 and recently I got a replacement LCD for the T61. The parts have come in very good condition (incredibly TuuS had a screen that appeared to never have been used) and I've had no problems with them. TuuS also did the most thorough packing I have ever seen, for the screen, to ensure it did not arrive broken.

TuuS is very helpful explaining what type of parts he has available and what condition they're in. He also nicely answered many questions and provided lots of helpful details and hints about how to install them (I had never installed either of these types of parts before). TuuS would be the first person I would turn to if I need any other parts for my ThinkPads.

Thank you cb474, I t was a challenge finding you a screen in this condition, and ultimately parted out an unissued 14" t61p to get your screen. It's a pleasure to see someone who really cares about quality as I had offered several cheaper options on used screens, but true thinkpad lovers want the best.

Thanks to 4uk4a for a fair and quick deal. Hoping you'll find good use in those batteries!

Also super-big thanks to ajkula; your systems now have their second life (one being modded for my eye's joy, another one working hard at the local school, and the last one donored his mobo to rescue a T42p).

You're very welcome and a big thanks to you for the nearly new T500 battery you sent as a swap for that T42. That battery is in great shape.

All,
I just had a Frankenpad (t601) built with the help of TuuS and Real Black Stuff. I went with the NVidia graphics option kit from TuuS and RBS completed the installation.
I could not be happier with the end product. Both gentlemen walked me thru the process and handled everything in a courteous and efficient manner. Kudos to both of them for a job well done. I look forward to dealing with them again. :D :)

Hi Gang.

Just a shout-out to new member "tdot", who shipped his vintage Thinkpad 770z to me promptly and with great secure packaging.

Laptop was in the excellent condition he described, with many accoutrements and accessories, and priced fairly.

Communications were prompt and friendly.

"tdot"is highly recommended and I'll gladly do business with him again in the future!

Thanks Ryan!!

(....now to dig out those OS/2 system discs... :D )

Hi Gang.

"brucehe" sent me a great condition Thinkpad x220T Tablet, WELL packaged!

(The Bubble Wrap Corporation of America will never go out of business as long as it has customers like Bruce :lol: ).

Laptop was as described, with a couple of minor machine annoyances clearly spelled out beforehand. No surprises here!

Great emails and shipping times to Canada.

Will have no hesitation in purchasing any of his future items.

Thanks Bruce!!

(Have to start practicing my penmanship!)

Hi Gang.

My X6xT collection just keeps growing and growing, with special thanks to AJKULA66, who contributed an x60T specimen, spare parts, and another side-deal battery.

Always a pleasure to deal with this gentleman, great communications, and a willingness to endure my questions and my incessant ramblings from "The Home!"

Fear not George, the Tower of Lappies is proceeding as we speak! :D Pics soon!!
