Is it just me or are the "Marketplace" sellers on Amazon getting worse recently? In the last 3 months I've had problems with 4 orders, 2 items which did not work and 2 items (including my Linx screen protectors) which never showed up. Also, a lot of these seller are now using "drop shipped" suppliers from the Far East which take weeks to arrive, but not mentioning this on their listings. Has anyone else had any problems or am I just unlucky?

I've found Amazon Marketplace sellers appear to be getting less reliable also. I've not bought anything for my Linx yet but I am cautious. I think they are going the same way as eBay. Great idea but... I now use both with caution.

This! I only buy direct from Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon now as it takes the mick! At least on Ebay you can see where it's shipped from, even though some listed as U.K. are still drop shipped...
