just tell them it isn't as described and ask them what they are going to do about it. Like new is clearly a lie, would you have paid so much if you had known the state they would have arrived in?

Depends what their response is like really - if they are rude and obnoxious I would prob neg and low stars too.

I'm a bit soft but in this situation I would leave positive feedback because the DVD is working fine, but in the comments I would say " would not describe item as being 'as new' condition, DVDs needed a good clean' or something similar.

Someone gave me feedback like that once when I had described something as excellent and they didn't think it was. I now tend not to describe the detail beyond new or used, as one person's excellent is another person's ok.

just want a bit of advice really.

i brought a dvd boxset which was described "like new". it arrived last week. however, when i checked all the discs (there's 7), they all had sticky marks and finger prints all over them, and inside one of the cases it sticky too. i have tried cleaning the first disc but it still looks quite dirty. i have only played the first 10 mins, as i havent had the time to sit down properly and watch them, but that 10 mins played ok.

ive never had a problem with anything i have brought before so im not sure what i should do now.

do i,
a) leave it and risk it?
b) tell them im going to leave a neutral as item wasnt described?, or
c) contect them and see what they will do?

if i contact them, what on earth do i say? i hate making an issue of things and being a pain blush
