After reading the post last week about the Altec im413 being available for $40 from Buy.com I thought I’d purchase the unit. I believe the post indicated it may be back ordered and a short wait was possible. I purchased the unit late on the 7th and paid the default shipping expecting to get the unit in 10-20 days. On Saturday, the 9th FEDEX delivered the unit and I was impressed with timeliness since the BUY.COM website indicated it usually ships in 2-3 business days.
However, the one item not in the packaging, Altec box, was the “wireless remote”. I’ve emailed buy.com a couple times to ask if they can send a remote, and I don’t think I’ve gone up high enough to resolve the issue. Were still at the return the whole unit for a refund stage.
Can anyone confirm if the remote does NOT work with the Sansa Fuze? If it doesn’t I’ll drop the issue with Buy.com because it would just be a hassle. Otherwise, I’ve been happy with the im413 unit, its also a great price!
