Do not purchase anything from the site Solar Energiy Store,which advertises in Caravan & Motorhome on Tour magazine. We have been trying to send back & get a refund for a rubbish satellite dish setup that was falsely advertised. This company has stalled for 6 weeks, said the parcel was "lost" etc & then finally refunded only part of the cost. They are dishonest traders, & I have found a warning about them on the Fair Trading List. Be warned!!

Margaret.
They advertise in quite a few different magazines, and their so called "quality" gear has been mentioned here and other sites on a regular basis.
Their "Infomon US Technology" range of gear has recieved quite a few bad reports on other forums as well.
Really can't understand how these magazines still run their advertising, but then again money talks and b@#%%^*! walks I guess.
Hope you get satisfaction from them.
Cheers
Paul

Thanks Paul, I have emailed C&M magazine to say they will lose business if they advertise this rotten stuff! Siolar energy store has another business name.. Bulk Imports & Exports. Seven Hills They have been fined over $15000 for selling products not equal to Aust Standards. Funny enough...they have't paid those fines either! I don't hold out much hope but will feel better if no-one buys any more cheap junk from them!

Hi Margaret,
Thanks for the heads up. This store has been mentioned here many times.

I have bought quite a bit of stuff from suppliers in Honk Kong and other parts of China with never a problem. Despite dire warnings from several posters here.

I mainly buy through ebay and that mob sell on there as well I think but I have steered clear due to warnings here.

If you buy through ebay you can check on a traders rating. They get bagged and or kicked off it they are not up to scratch I think.
Cheers, Bruce

Bruce.... you can doctor up trader ratings on Ebay and all may not be as seen.

Have a look....

Check NSW Fair Trading web site or phone them - they have many aliases and a long history of various types of deceitful trading, according to Fair Trading and a recent article in the Sydney Telegraph. Your comments of 'lost in the post' and only refunding part of the purchase price seems to be par for the course with them.
