Title: eFUNZINe in Poland - fantastic!!
Post by: d0pefish on June 17, 2006, 02:49:50 AM
I have just had a brilliant experience with eFUNZINe in Poland (http://www.efunzine.com/). Their website is all in Polish, but a very friendly and helpful guy called Marcin speaks perfect English and was able to provide me with some Amiga gear after I contacted him via email.

I bought a CyberStorm PPC by phase5 (060@50, 604e@233), a CyberVision PPC by DCE and a new old stock Amiga Tech A4000 English keyboard. He was very helpful and answered all my questions.

It has taken about a month to complete but that isn't something either of us could help; besides it was worth the wait. I paid him by wire transfer which took a week (something I've never done before!) and as soon as it completed he dispatched my gear immediately.

It took about 3 weeks for it to reach me, and Parcel Force handled the package when it reached the UK. There was no customs charge, VAT or anything like that waiting to sting me. Everything was very well packed and it arrived in impeccable condition.

The keyboard has to be seen to be believed. It is brilliant white all over and not a single mark. It is literally brand, brand new. I'm so pleased!

The cards are obviously used, but they are perfect. They came with driver disks and manuals. He even gave me some spare motherboard standoffs.

I'd recommend a visit to their site as they have quite a bit of difficult to find Amiga gear. Even though it's in Polish it's definately still worth a look, and then you can email them for further info.

Just makes a change from the craziness on eBay. :)

I've had good dealings with Marcin also.

The web site isn't updated often, but if there's something you're after, a quick email will get all the info you want.

Once the deal is done, he ships straight away. My PPC card took only 6 days to get to Australia!!

They don't have any - that's what the red cross and 'na zam√≥wienie' means.  Actually it looks like 80% of their site is out of stock.

Wish I understood Polish. What a nice online store. I wonder if they plan to have an English version...

Try this: http://www.poltran.com

"Na zamówienie" mans that they don't have this in stock, instead, if you tell them you want it, they will get it for you.

Well, you can make bank transfer which should be free inside EU and alternatively there is MoneyBookers (with it you could use your credit card). I had the same questions in my mind when I ordered stuff from them, but they were very helpful!

you have contacted them? you have writed english or polish? :-D
And so, i can recommend them to make a english version of that site?

Yes, they speak fluent english.

You can convert the prices using www.xe.com, and I think the product-pages are quite self-explanetary

The main problem is that although loads of interesting stuff is listed, most of the time they never have in stock what I ask for... And also, if you are not from Poland, you get quoted a higher price (on the actual items, not on shipping).
