By fussylizard in Bulk Orders,
*** This bulk order is closed as of 2009-11-10 *** 40x2 Green-on-Black Optrex Displays Update- Stock remaining as of 2009-11-07: 4 [This is a dedicated thread for the bulk order discussed at http://www.midibox.org/forum/index.php/topic,10847.msg120640.html#msg120640] THE GOODS This bulk order is for Optrex 40x2 green-on-black displays (see pictures below).  Optrex part number C-51850NFQJ-LG-ACN (http://www.optrex.com/products/partdetail.asp?PartNumber=C-51850NFQJ-LG-ACN).  This is the same display used by Ultra's MB-SEQ as seen in this post: http://www.midibox.org/forum/index.php/topic,11802.msg113232.html#msg113232  (Note in the picture the display still has its protective plastic in place so the surface looks a bit rough.) You can use this in your MB-SEQ (2 required), MB-FM (1 required), custom MIDIbox control surface, etc. Also, please see this post before ordering: To get the best out of the displays, also see here: PRICING These displays are normally available through Mouser for US $40 each + shipping (http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=C-51850NFQJ-LG-ACNvirtualkey51610000virtualkey805-51850NFQJLGACN).  By ordering a full carton directly from Optrex I am able to offer them to fellow MIDIboxers for US $26 each + shipping/insurance. There are 80 pieces available, about half of which are already spoken for as of this initial posting.  The remainder will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.  See top of this post for remaining stock. HOW TO ORDER I am organizing this order Wilba-style based on discussions with Wilba about his experience running numerous bulk orders, so we'll be following his 3 rules: 1. If you don't have the cash, don't waste my time with an order. An order means "I can pay now", not "I can pay when I get paid next month". 2. After emailing an order, you are expected to check your emails daily and make a PayPal payment as soon as you receive a payment request. 3. Email your order exactly as described so I can easily copy and paste the details into a spreadsheet. That means, no labels, no blank lines, no address all on one line, capital first letters, forgetting what country you live in, etc. Email your order to: midibox-lcd@fussylizard.com with email subject: Optrex 40x2 Bulk Order (Note the address is "fussylizard" and NOT "fuzzylizard".) The contents of the email should be (without labels!): your MIDIbox username your real name your postal address line 1 (e.g. street) your postal address line 2 (e.g. city, state/province, postal code) your COUNTRY (in capitals) your contact email address (same one you are using to email me) your PayPal email Address (the one you use for PayPal) your desired quantity of displays example: FunkyPunky Johannes Schmitt Oberammergaueralpenkräuterdelikatessenfrühstückskäse Str. 29 10997 Berlin GERMANY Johannes.Schmitt@gmx.de Johannes.Schmitt@gmx.de 3 Once I receive an emailed order I will reply with an email informing you I received your order, usually within 24 hours.  I will then issue a PayPal request which you should pay immediately.  Once you have paid I will ship your order and confirm shipment with an email.  If I have sold out, I will inform you via email and will not issue a PayPal request. In the unlikely event there are any problems with your order, please contact me via e-mail, PM, or post a message to this thread in the forum. ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS These displays are sold as-is and all sales are final.  They are new from the factory but at my discretion I may pre-test one or all to ensure they work prior to shipping.  If you are violently opposed to pre-testing, please PM me after emailing your order. PayPal requests not paid within a 48 hours are subject to cancellation at my discretion.  Remember that I'm fronting the $ to purchase the carton so I want to sell them as fast as possible so I don't get stuck with half a carton of unsold displays.  The upside of my pre-ordering is you don't have to wait for a full carton of orders to accumulate which allows you get them faster. I will include insurance for orders at my discretion based on reliability of the postal service in your country and the quantity of displays ordered. You are responsible for any import duty/taxes due when the parcel arrives in your country.  These fees/taxes are NOT included in the purchase price.  I will declare all goods at actual value on the U.S. customs forms I must use to ship internationally. Have fun with the displays! IMG_4553.JPG IMG_4554.JPG IMG_4553.JPG IMG_4554.JPG
