    Is it back yet? Just gauging repair times as I have 2 in at present. They've not been in long, but did yours get returned within the 3 weeks period?

    the one i got back from M$ was indeed a brand new unit. i don't think they would have taken the time to clean smudges and stuff like that. i didn't bother even looking at the serial number or anything...

    A Genesis 2, bare unit only, this one has been modded to receive a nice blue led: GONE

    A Neogeo AES Japanese Adapter and a Xbox 360 VGA cable GONE both in good working condition, the VGA only has the little door for optical sound missing:

    I was planning on doing the same thing. But i still haven't recovered from the last package stolen...

    Everytime i remember, is a mixed feeling of sadness and anger.

    Well, it wasn't your fault.

    I just don't feel right to buy anything overseas right now. I'll end up being ripped off by someone selling it, but at least i'll receive it at the same time i pay.

    I lost any trust i had on the mailing service.

    Apple iMac 1Gb memory stick (UK)

    I have a new iMac dual core and wanted the 4Gb version. Apple were going to charge me £99 per Gb so I accepted the 1Gb version and bought 2 x 2Gb sticks from www.crucial.com for £64.00 (this isn't spam btw).

    So, I have the genuine Samsung memory stick supplied by Apple spare - £99 for 1Gb is a joke, plus frankly I don't need this stick.

    Anyone interested? It's yours for the want of P&P to wherever in the World you are. It's in a static bag, it's safely packaged and ready to rock the moment someone places sufficient P&P into my PayPal account.

    Product: Samsung 1Gb PC2 5300 - 200pin DDR2 SODIMM :thumbsup:

    Not sure if we can request things here, but if anyone has a spare male round C shape 8 DIN connector (the sort of connector that PC-Engine and Mega Drive mk1 have) and RCA male (preferably white!) lying around I'd really apprecaite if they could send it to mein exchange for a couple of quid as it would save me a long trip into town to overpriced Maplins (Or buying a bulk lot of them as Maplins never seem to have the connectors in stock!)

    Its for a RGB - Euro scart cable for my MSX...my first proper home built cable.

    Want to get rid of these:

    1x Fire Pro Wrestling (Japan GBA, complete, box has text written onto it with a marker)
    1x Dual Blades (Japan GBA, complete, Japanese bootleg/pirate cart)

    7 Euros should cover shipping to anywhere in the world.

    3rd party remote for MS Xbox kiosk TV (Thomson)

    I own an Xbox retail Kiosk, which had a piss poor Thomson TV (the original monitor provided by MS) in the unit. In a bid to repair it I bought a 3rd party remote, but adjusting the settings made no bit of difference.

    So, if you own or plan to own an Xbox Kiosk with a Thomson TV then this is the item for you. Free to anyone who should require it (PM me) so long as you are in Europe. It'll only work with the European Kiosk as all the others had different TVs in 'em as far as I can tell.

    Anyone interested?

    Parris :thumbsup:

    If anyone is interested, a Philips 19" TFT fits the kiosk perfectly. ;-)
