It arrived!!! And with a tasty caramel Corn treat as well.
Need to check it out tonight to make sure it works.

It is a lot smaller than I pictured it being. Very much like the "hockey puck" Mac mouse, as others have noted here.

I'm glad to see that Rob came through for you. Maybe if I had been trying to cut a deal on something small and easy to ship, it would have worked out.

The phrase 'All that glitters is not gold' is certainly true with regard to Mr Blessin's enterprise. I think I was the last to post bad feedback on 18/9/05.
This is the trouble with eBay - people are reluctant to resort to posting bad feedback until all is lost, so at any one time there are many pending transactions that may or may not be going belly up - which turned out to be the case in my experience.
At the time I spoke to Rob, I had a splendid 030 Cube with a mono screen no HD and a duff OD !
The novelty of the ROM monitor wears off after a while, I can tell you.
I called Rob - had a long and interesting conversation about what I needed to bring my system back to a working state, agreed a price and placed an order on him via Paypal for an HD & software. Then nothing. Sent emails, left messages, tried to raise him on the phone. No luck.
I ended up getting most of the money back from Paypal in the end. As for Robs responses to the bad feedback, well, I received nothing from him.

I was interested to see that the eBay site persisted, and then even more so when positive feedback started appearing.

I think we all would like to believe there's someone out there 'for the better good of the NeXT community' carving out an existence, someone we can rely on for support, parts and upgrades.
Sadly that is not Rob Blessin.

no a surprise there. They seem to be getting rarer.
