RealBlackStuff came through for me on some hardware work, but really the fact that he's a stand-up guy who provides good service shouldn't be a surprise to anybody here!

KAQSP -- was extremely helpful when I purchased a laptop from him. The laptop came as described and he put in extra effort to get me the computer quickly. Good solid sale.

I had a second great transaction with BobA - I purchased a T410s from him and everything went very well. The machine (otherwise in excellent condition and just as described) did not have a fingerprint reader when I received it; when I pointed this out to Bob, he promptly shipped me a replacement palmrest and covered return shipping as well, keeping me updated on the progress all the way. Thanks again, Bob!

Purchased a custom built laptop from TuuS :banana:

He is by far one of the best sellers I have ever done business with. He answered all my questions within a day and has amazing knowledge of what he sells and builds. I would certainly purchase another custom built system from him in a heartbeat if I needed another. I am really happy with my purchase. Thanks again Tuus! :D

Hi All,

This positive feedback is for TuuS and the wonderful transaction I had with him. I was selling one of my machines and it was very pleasant to close the sale. He was very prompt on payment and a fair and understanding gentleman to deal with. I had forgotten that a part of the panel had small scratches and we both worked out this issue. It's great when you get something resolved that benefits both parties.

Again, I would purchase/sell items from TuuS anytime.

Take care,
John

:thumbs-UP: +1 for TuuS -- I recently purchased some Windows and Restore Disks from him, and both transactions were quick and easy, with quick ship and helpful info along the way.

Thank You, I can't say enough good about our transactions. I'd highly recommend anyone do business with you and if you ever need a reference, I'd be more then glad to provide.

Hi Guys/Girls,

This postiive feedback is for dorronto.

Ron, was a pleasure to deal with. He was quick in payment and a gentleman to boot!

I would buy/sell from/to Ron at anytime in the future!

We might even have a forum group meet up for some coffee, which would be a blast.

Have a great day,
John

Summertime Kudos to JohnD. for an excellent example of a prime late 2007 T60 laptop.

Great communication and next day delivery! (we both live in PA)

Anyway, thanks John and maybe we'll be able to organize a PA coffee clutch meeting of some of the Forum members.......

Ron

I'll second everything John and Ron have said. I've had trades with both members and both have been a pleasure to deal with.


ps. I may not be in PA, but I can see the state line from my driveway, so count me in :)

Hi All,

This positive feedback is for Thinkpad Lover (Daniel). I bought a NNB keyboard from him, stated as MINT condition (looks almost new). Communication was decent and fast. The keyboard was well packed and fast shipped (4 working days) to The Netherlands. It works perfectly and indeed looks almost new :D

You can reach him via email at tigerinspring1@aol.com

I am a satisfied customer 8)

Another thumbs up for TuuS, purchased a T9300 CPU quite a few months back and he threw in a set of hinges for my T61p. I would be glad to buy from him again.
Thanks again.

At the risk of repeating what everyone else says:

Thumbs up for TuuS. I bought a T61 battery from him in a smooth, efficient, polite transaction, complete with fast shipping and a battery that performs exactly as promised. Fair price, fast shipping, accurate description, perfect communication.

Thanks again to TuuS.

Item: Genuine Lenovo LG Philips 15" 4:3 standard aspect SXGA+ (1400x1050 resolution) IPS FLEXVIEW LCD Panel for Thinkpad T60, T60p or R60

+1 From Finland to Thinkpad Lover.

After disappointing and time consuming Ebay experience I contacted Thinkpad Lover (Daniel).
He assured that the panel he is selling is new and real deal and has all IBM FRU stickers etc. on place.

No need to disappoint this time. Everything was just like he described. And after postage costs (USA > FIN) and taxes, it was still cheaper than the one inside EU I was looking from Ebay.

Great improvent for my R60! I can really recommend! He still has a few of these left! You can reach him via email at tigerinspring1@aol.com

Thank You! :thumbs-UP:

Clear and quick communication.

Thanks to OCedT60! Communication was pleasant and the item was packaged very well.

I bought his Intel T7600G to make my T60p complete. The best possible CPU compliments my setup of a new cooler, Samsung SSD 830, 3GB RAM and 1600x1200 FlexView display.
