This Globe Floating Maglev UFO Cheerlink 106mm c / Generator Anion (CHEERLINK 106mm UFO Maglev Floating Globe w/ Anion Generator – Blue + Black (US Plug / AC 100 ~ 240V)) was acquired in DX – DealExtreme, and to purchase was already reported in the previous article.
It seemed to be an interesting garnish, different. But it was a complete disappointment. To begin, the globe is wrong. The two hemispheres do not fit right. If not managed to do it right, imagine the electronics business… It is known that finding the correct positioning of the globe so that it is floating is not an easy task. But in this case Floating Globe is simply impossible. This crap came defective and there is no position that the globe float, except maybe if I put it in a rocket and send it to the space outside the Earth's gravitational field.
The package is good until, well Styrofoam, then it should not have been damaged in transport. The source also appears to be OK. The instructions, in English and Chinese, was followed to the letter. Mas sem chance… The deal absurdly warm. I even measure the power consumption with the Kill-A-Watt, gave 3 watts without the globe, but as the globe approaches consumption increases and fluctuates quite, arriving there by 20 watts. I do not know how much it would consume in normal operation.
After tiring of trying to make it work, I decided to open a ticket with the DX. That's when buying in DX can make all the difference. There's always someone to alert you that a product is less expensive in some unknown store, but cheap can get expensive. Other stores to return the amount paid, but the return freight is always paid by the customer and the reimbursement is only done when the defective product arrives in their hands. Remember that the Chinese pay very little freight, but in Brazil the Post shove the knife mercilessly. It is a state-owned company that makes a profit, in other words, is used to cover the huge expenses of the Brazilian lulo-PT government in other areas and more traditional robbery. So the high prices. So when making an RMA, the simple fact of the store be willing to pay for it already makes all the difference.
A DX quickly sent the RMA label. I made the post and paid £ 65,00 to send the product to the address of DX US for the cheapest shipping method. It was enough to take a picture of the package before sending, scan or receipt, and send both the DX. Quickly already publish it in my account.
When making a RMA, You can choose to send another product equal to the defective, a different product, a full refund or keep the value as credit for future purchases. As for the value of the return shipping, You can choose between a refund or keep the value as credit for future purchases. In both cases I opted for credit for future purchases. I do not like opt for refund because the value back to PayPal and PayPal sends a credit to the credit card used to purchase, but the Bank of Brazil always “forget” returning the IOF purchase, that thanks to Dilma is today 6,38% do valor (the value tripled in her government), in other words, is no small thing! When I complain that the IOF was not reversed in 0800 bank, binding always falls before I was met or while I'm being served. Then always end up having to appeal to a complaint to the Central Bank to see the refund of IOF on my bill. It is best to avoid fatigue and leave the value credit, after all it will end up being used sooner or later.
Below, as curiosity, follow the tracking information package. Interestingly, the largest delay is always in Brazil. Customs supervision of a package from Brazil took 5 days. In packets entering this period sometimes reaches months. In the US the package came in and was released through customs in a few hours, and 3 days later has been delivered. First world is another level.
