Hi CoCo,

Of course I can get you a copy of the manual, no problem!
Let me know if I can help with the shipping as well. At least he agreed to send it to you! I had to ask for help and also have helped others when sellers would simply not ship outside whatever country they're in.

Let me know when I can help you. Here are some pictures of my Escort:







I wish I could take pictures like Tom does:

Hi Ismenio,
Are you reading into my mind? I just by a Escort last week from US, I took 7 days to the seller to figure out the shipping cost ands he just return to me today with a ridiculous amount...This one make my statistics dropping a lot.

Talking of escort, I am not sure if instruction are include in mine, if not I will be happy to beg a scan copy of the manual(engish or french) I do not need the whole booklet. Of course if I can do something in exchange that will be find.

Have a nice day

Hi CoCo,

Thanks for your message. I just had another computer that I sent to a friend in UK and it arrvied safely but I'm always a little nervous about this. So far, I can't say I have really had problems other than long delays, especially from Germany. But the way I see it, one lost computer is one too many

I recently got a Novag Escort shipped from New Zealand, the first time I get anything from there. Incidentaly, I found out that they can cash US checks so that made it easy to complete this transaction.

Best reagards,

Ismenio

PS: To all, I am behind updating the site and the links. BTW, Steffen and Tom, you may want to update your member's profile and add your website there as well

Folks,

We discussed eBay horror stories here before (http://users.boardnation.com/~chesscomputers/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=279 ) now Id like to ask you about shipping.

Now, Im not talking about non-honorable sellers or private deals where the computer was not shipped at all (thought you can comment on them of course!) but I was curious as to what is the success rate that you have in getting the items (and sending them) with a 100% satisfaction. That is, the computer arrived in a timely fashion and in good condition.

Are there specific carriers that are problematic? Countries? Shipping methods? (airmail versus land/ship)
Any specific computers that are more delicate and needed special care? I can think of the dust covers for the Phantoms.

One thing I just learned is that it seems that insurance may not be all that valuable at all! I thought that once you ensured something that would give you piece of mind but it seems that in some cases you have the burden of having to prove the value of the product and that even an specialist may be involved in the process and in the end the whole thing is so complicated that youre better off not paying the extra money for that.

So, whats your take on that?

Ismenio
