Net Shopping

How convenient they are.  I absolutely agree.  Without Ebay and the Chinese supplier of the small components, my kind of DIY couldn’t exist.  Though it has an inevitable drawback of remote shopping.  I’m buying the things only from its description and the photos, without actually checking the product, and paying the money in advance.   As a matter of fact, I’m doing this while fully aware of me lose the money.   That was why I don’t do the shopping of more than £15 (with very few exception).   That may be a cost of having a laugh, Ha ha ha.  —– On the history, in the early days, 10, 15 years ago, I failed all the shopping which was more than £50 each = two from US and the other from Australia when I wanted to get Hi-power LED.   Just the money has gone and I never seen any LED.   No reply to my Email, or any Phone call.  That’s it.  The end.  What I got was the expensive lesson.   😀

Recently, I bought several items on the Net.   MNh 2500mAh DURACELL Batteries from Green something of UK dealer. Because I trusted the DURACELL , I bought two packs of them.   They were fantastic on the start.   I used them for a kind of LED lighting = Their power continued more than double of the previous set (seemed 1500mAh )    Then, after the second, third charge, they lost the capacity, down to the half.   In fact their price was cheaper among the others.   But, obviously there was a catch behind.  

There are two different approaches to the sales tactics, “Less profit but selling quick and more”  or  “With higher price, selling less but more profit with less handling and posting” —– yet another approach was, find the cheap deal for threw away goods, such as the rejected product from the factory bin.  (Well known example was the half price memory card —– you can understand where those memory can come from if you realize that only few company in the world can produce such Hi-Tec memory = cheap one was the rejected because of so many dead address = to skip the dead address slow down the process which you may not noticed)  Anyway only few customers return the goods or claim the refund. = They expect that they can get away with the money in the pocket.  (And they do.)

The another item was two sets of Lens / Body cap for Sony E-mount —– though I got 1 Sony, 1 EOS = then, who bother to send them back and get replacement for £3 product ? = Ha ha ha.  

I had talked about the Piercing saw = as I wrote, they were good shopping yet, the saw blade came with (supposedly 6 different sizes)  were, in fact all same size.    Ha ha ha   again.

In the another shopping = against the ordered item 58mm to 58mm mount, 36mm to 90mm extension helicoid ring, what I received was 25mm to 50mm extension ring —– still they want to have my 5 star response.  (they may not aware that they made a mistake)     We can’t to be too serious with Net.   Because of they are loose and not square, we can have a fun.   Likewise, even with President Tramp, still, life goes on.   Ha ha ha   😀
