"Still waiting for my in-stock item to ship six months later!!"

On December 20th I ordered a Yamaha A-S500 amplifier from, through Amazon Global (I live in Norway). It was in stock, and delivery date no later than Jan 25th was promised. Then on Jan 25th, the delivery estimate was revised by a month to Feb 20th or thereabout. This has kept up in a continuous cycle of missed promises and revised delivery estimates and it is now almost June and I still have no amp. customer service has been of no help, I get replies from representatives in an outsourced customer service central, that are unable to do anything for me except to send internal emails and to simply promise that "this time we really will deliver by the delivery estimate". During this entire period the item has been in stock, and the delay is due to a "technical problem".

Overall I am very unsatisfied with and their handling of my order.
I have used other times and been very happy, but beware that the service level you will encounter if there is a problem with your order is going to be friendly but totally unhelpful.
