PixelView PlayTV Box5

•April 10, 2007 • 1 Comment

After withdraw the order from play-asia.  To avoid any delay on linking my xbox to LCD. I decided to get pixel view play TV box 5 from local computer hardware distributor. With the cost RM245.

 My rating to this device is 85%. Reason: value for money. With this value i can project my Xbox to LCD with 1280 x 1024 high-resolution output. I did compare, S-video and normal RCA connection. S-video project better quality then normal RCA connection from Xbox.

The new arrangement of the Xbox and LCD hopefully will last long. Alot of time when i arrange the PC, LCD and xbox location, due to some safety issue, i have to rearrange it. Hopefully with this new layout it will be more tightly and better cable management.

Hope someone from play.asia.com will respond to my complaint within this week and workout with me how to send me the correct item that I purchase. I will continue to enforce my consumer rights until someone from play-asia.com (http://www.play-asia.com/)respond to my complaint. My email address: hbau76@gmail.com 

Today someone name JOE from play-asia respond to my complaint, asking for hand written order number. The number is 5507357 as shown as above photo. Expecting he will expedite to send me the actual item that i purchase.

Finally, i decided to get back the money from Play-asia since they not able to provide me any date on the restock on this item.  I will rate this company good reputation and respond to customer request on time even they not able to deliver what they suppose to send.

The CD will send back to the P.O box number that they provide in normal post. I will not put any negative feedback to this company as they really care about customer expectation when dealing with customer complaint. Thumb up for this company. Will trade again if any item that attract me from their website.
