I much prefer physical CD's over downloads, but sometimes it seems the BS you have to go through with flaky or unprofessional sellers is not worth it. In mid May I emailed a seller as I wanted to buy a new release they had listed. After four days of no response, I write again. I'm told they'll be ready at months end. Fine. A week later I receive a mailing list announcement of all the new releases, including the disc I want. "Email to preorder" it says. I do so. I get a response--"when discs arrive next week ill let you know". Never received followup that week. Wouldn't it be so much EASIER to take my payment as a "pre-order" the way 99.9% of labels do, and just ship it out when product is available??? Though there's no obvious reason why, it seems this guy doesn't want to sell me any CD's.
Had another issue with a seller who every time I order something I have to inquire why it has not arrived yet and they're always apologizing, making excuses, and sending me something extra free "for my troubles". The date they say they sent it never matches the postmarked date.
Downloads are starting to look more attractive...
