At this point, we're nearing the date where we can file a complaint with paypal about not receiving goods (45 day window). Since we haven't heard from AsbestosPudding, and he isn't responding to PMs, it may be time to get that ball rolling, unfortunately...
Hey guys, sorry I haven't updated in a while. I got FreudianS's email. I've been going back and forth with the supplier, and the original shop we were trying to get the supplies from didn't have enough in stock. I've been going back and forth with them and it's usually 2-3 days between responses. I've gotta speak with the supplier, and they're just the middleman, I don't speak Chinese so I can't contact these electronics shops directly.
At this point I've tried 3 different shops and none have had the quantity I requested in stock. I've suggested trying to place a bunch of smaller orders and I'm waiting on a response about that. What I've learned from this whole deal is that these little Chinese shops say they have 50 of something when in fact they only have one or two or sometimes none at all in order to make it seem like they are a huge operation when in fact they're just a mom & pop store, or simply to enhance their search results. Nobody seems to think it's out of the ordinary, either, different cultures, I guess?
I'm as frustrated as you all are - remember I've got a dead monitor sitting in the closet too waiting on a replacement supply. If you're tired of waiting then I can request a refund from the supplier and issue a Paypal refund to you, but I guarantee I'm not going anywhere and I'm gonna get these supplies if it takes me til Christmas. I already easily fixed one monitor and I'm not happy about my second one being a 24" paperweight.
How about you refund our paypal payments, and allow us to pay you again...that would reset the 45 day clock we have with paypal...
That's fine, I'll transfer funds back into my Paypal account and then refund you as soon as the transfer is complete. Anybody else who wants me to do so I'd be glad to. I'm not out to scam anybody. Like I said, I want my supply just as much as you all do. FYI I just sent another reminder email out to China to get back to me about the multiple order idea.

Tomorrow (Friday) is day 43, so I'll open an issue with paypal since I'm entirely unlikely to think about this over the weekend...unless you refund the money before then, in which case I'll just send it back to you to reset the 45 day clock.
