"Nice Selection", but Beware: NOT WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE!

Ease of Ordering:
I ordered a -Retail- PNY 256MB USB2.0 Thumb Drive, they charged me advertised price, took about a week and a half to arrive, and when I received the box, first thing I noticed was that it was roughly 1'x1'x1' for something that could have fit in a padded envelope. I opened it up and there was the small thumb drive box all banged up because there was insufficient padding in the shipping box. I took it out and realized that it was a relabeled OEM PNY thumb drive, that looked NOTHING like what I had "Ordered". I spent multiple hours talking to foreigners that could barely speak English trying to figure out why they didn't send me the advertised product. There was just about nothing I could do, so I just kept it. The next thing I realized was that the mail in rebate expired approx 10 days before the advertisement said, and there was no receipt / packing slip in the box they sent me. Another hour on the phone. The rep said "I emailed you the receipt". 5 days later and 3 more calls, they finally sent it. That left me with 1 (one!) day to get the rebate forms filled out and postmarked. In the end I paid a premium for a relabeled OEM product. I did get the rebate, but barely and with a lot of -unnecessary- hassle. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY, THEY DO NOT RESPECT CUSTOMERS AND DO NOT SHIP WHAT THEY SELL! BEWARE!
