    Learn from my mistake. Check out a company thoroughly before you make a purchase. If you buy a receiver from an online company that offers a 10 day “Satisfaction Guarantee” they will delay your shipment so there is no possible way for you to return it. Their policy states “10 days from order date”. My receiver arrived at my door 13 days after the order date.

    I got BURNED!!!! You don’t have to.

    Did you pay by credit card?
    Dispute the charge with the CC company. That will get the dealers attention.
    Document everything when disputing the charge

    Buy from one of the SatelliteGuys Gold Sponsors...that's the best way to avoid being bagged and tagged by a Cyberspace Shylock.

    mkm4,
    Thanks. I will try my CC company and see what happens.

    riffjim4069,
    I have been reading these forums for the past few weeks and I have learned a lot. Everyone is very helpfull to all. There are a lot of other sites that rip a new guy to shreds for asking a question. How soon do they forget that they were once a "Newbie" too. :) In my opinion SatelliteGuys is the first and only place to go for those looking for answers to their FTA questions.

    SatinKzo,
    I want to refrain from mentioning the online dealer by name. But if you GO to any search engine and search for SATELLITE, you will find the .NET where I purchased my receiver. ;)

    Put together the words in bold.

    Do you know how many sites sell satellite equipment? Simply stating that you had a bad experience with a specific company and sticking to the facts wont hurt anyone.

    If you look at the ebay ratings. quite a few people mentioned the slow shipping. It seems however that most people got problems resolved. Time to go rattle some cages and get resolution.

    Stpso....... recommend to the next guy you hear talking about getting satellite to use a local retailer or dealer, no 800#'s or internet sight.

    Tell this on-line crook that he needs to resolve this or his company name will be mentioned on ALL industry forums...you can not be sued for telling the truth.

    Agree! Is this a coincidence? Check out the similarity between the Gold Sponsor ftadirect vs. gosatellite

    You can always ask around the FTA area. Sadoun is generally regarded as awesome. I have yet to buy from them but wouldn't hesitate to. I've had dealings with SGAFTA and I'm very happy with them.
