Item described as "NEW" -- It WASN'T !!! 4 defectives
on June 7, 2011
I have been ordering this item for over 6 months, once, sometimes twice a month. In that time, I had maybe two or three defective tapes. This last shipment, the tapes had obviously being re-packaged (poorly, I might say) and closed with mailing tape. I assumed some kind of quality control had been done. Boy, was I wrong. 4 of the 8 tapes were defective (plastic case crushed in corner, or broken lid, and in one case, tape loose and off the spool.) Our nearest post office is over 5 miles away, and so is UPS. UPS will not pick up from my residence unless I am present to hand it to them. So, the nuisance value of a return makes this just not worth it. Beware buyers... you may be buying garbage. Plus, the item description says "NEW", and in this case, it obviously was NOT TRUE!!! What a disappointment in Amazon. I have thought they were better than that.
