I purchased a Kenwood HU from a guy named georgiaspl off SMD. He described the defect as not bad and not noticeable unless you really look. I received the HU today and there is a long deep scratch on the face. None of his pics show the scratch. In fact, his pics show a screen free of defects. I feel his description and pics were misleading, false and disceptive. After opening the box and seeing the defect, I immediately took photos and asked for a refund. He said no. I posted the pics and everyone agrees his description is misleading. I posted my pics for comparison and you can clearly see a long deep scratch. I made a claim thru paypal to have them resolve it. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up on this guy in case he tries to sell you anything. The link can be found here.

Banned? For what? I'll post the thread tomorrow when I get on my computer. It's too much of a pain to do it on my phone.

Did you "gift" the money through PayPal? if not open a dispute. If you did, well, that was kind of stupid.

Banned because SMD is retarded...I called 05fronty "ghey" in his build log thread and got perma'd for it.

Did you see those scratches in his photos? How description days its hardly noticeable and that you'd really have to look. I could see it immediately. It's deep so probably not repairable.

did you notice the angles he shot from would hide the defect

No I did not gift the money. I have a claim now. I am hoping paypal will refund my money. I even offered to pay shipping cost but I said if I have to fight it then I won't. He still thinks he's right b/c he mentioned a scratch but I think he took photos of a different unit and posted them b/c this scratch is hard to hide.

No I did not know that. He said it was minor and barely noticeable. I still feel he was disceptive and did not adequately disclose the damage to the unit and tried to hide it with his claim that there is barely a scratch and posting photos of a unit that clearly has no scratch.

Thx for the feedback. I hope paypal agrees and I get my money back.

I don't see how they could side with him, definitively not as described.
