In Topic: Sea & Sea vs Ikelite

12 June 2014 - 03:13 AM

I have 200+ dives on various ikelite housings, zero issues.. The salt content of the water where I dive is also higher than most places, so housings take a beating.


That being said when it is time for me to upgrade cameras, I will do all calculations and considerations of purchasing an aluminum housing.  I have no real reason to go with anyone but ikelite as I already have ports and what not, however as they say the grass is always greener on the other side.  I would be doing myself an injustice if I don't at least check out the other manufacturers. 


in my mind Ikelite has an advantage in that they are an american company.

wanted to wish you like with selling the housing and say thank you, seeing your post reminded me to setup magic lantern on my 50D =)

1. Item was advertised as having a cracked shade.

2. Item was additionally discounted prior to sale.

3. Buyer complains of it having a cracked shade.

4. See item 1. Repeat as required.


it was advertised as having a repaired/patched shade.  It arrived cracked without any sign of a suitable repair, only after the fact did you post a picture of the shade cracked in half prior to your "repair".  No additional discount was given, you accepted my offer of a lower price.


I am complaining about how you handled communication, failing to take responsibility for poor packaging, and that you do not insure your shipments.


These are all things that future buyers should be aware of.


Now hopefully we can both move on our merry ways and save wetpixel from anymore back and forth drama.

I have reported the false statement of njcfm to the Moderator.


His statements are false. He purchased a used item, that the description clearly stated had a cracked shade, and then wants me to buy him a new one, because it arrives with a crack?  Then comes on here and flames me. In over 150 online sales, I have never had a complaint.


He also asked me to falsify Customs paperwork.


What a guy.



I did not ask you to purchase a new one, I asked you to split the cost with me since the package you sent me was damaged due to poor packaging and not having insurance on it to cover the damage.


the customs paperwork doesn't even come into play because the package was shipped to NJ.


again, buyer beware.

nothing was removed from the shade by me or my father.


your failure to insure the package you shipped and statement that as soon as you drop it off at the post office it isn't your problem is something all future buyers should know about.


all of a sudden after i had asked for pictures previously he posts a picture pre-patch, thanks for that.


the receipt was for customs reasons if it was going to come straight to bermuda, to make life easier I had it shipped to a house in NJ, where it was inspected upon delivery, as for 5 days later that is BS, it was delivered on the 24th I contacted David on the 27th after a HOLIDAY weekend.  The fact that David can't count is enough of a reason NOT to do business with him.
