Important updates

  • Customer Service via OzBargain Inbox: In the current environment, I need to ask everyone to please direct all enquiries - status updates, technical support, etc - to either [email protected] or [email protected], not my OzB account, to help us keep every query in the same location. I can't guarantee a reply on OzB at the moment so please don't send anything urgent there.

  • Customer service times are extended at the moment under heavy load, so please understand if it takes more than 24 hours for a reply - you will get a reply as soon as it is possible. We're adding extra staff and resources to deal with the increased volume of enquiries.

  • Dispatch times: Our current shipping estimate is 14 business days for new orders. We're shipping the entire backlog of Intel i7 orders this week after COVID delays, Ryzen 9 systems next week and B450 Mortar orders (also COVID delays, some overdue orders here) will be next week, either with Mortar or equivalent replacement - an email update is coming to customers on that today so please check your inbox later. And all others due around now are very close to shipping - perhaps a couple of days over estimate but catching up quickly.

Thanks, and have a happy Easter (at home).

    Another great deal from Techfast.

    Any chance of being able to replicate this previous deal?
    R5-1600 AF RX 580 Budget Gaming PC [B450]: $588 + Delivery @ TechFast

    Super Keen.

    How long wait for the R5 1600AF RX580?

    Hope to get a reply from you guys soon to know what happening to my items. Thanks

      I'm sitting in my 17th business day already, and got no updates.

      •  

        I once sat on 45 days on my delivery and that was non-covid19 days. My order did arrived eventually.

        You're fine. Just be patient.

      •  

        I'm at 22 now :/. Just got an email this evening with an update that stock is due next week for the MSI B450 Mortar Mobo so let's hope it's shipped out next week!

        •  

          Update: Have had great contact/support from Luke and the team. Looks like it'll definitely ship this week, they also offered me alternatives to get it shipped sooner with their current stock.
          They also upgraded my case for the delay so very happy with the service.

      •  

        I got mine on my 18th business day due to covid… send an email to support they do get back to you.. i had two updates like this. It was great.

    • +2 votes

      I'm in the same boat. No idea where the AF1600 + RX580 combo is since it was in Startrack hands back on the 31st of March in Adelaide. Not impressed with the lack of communication from Australia Post.

      • +1 vote

        I have the exact some problem for my order on 16 March (Sydney). I received a motherboard box yesterday, but the actual computer no updates to tracking since 31 March. Last update from Techfast suggested that I contact Australia Post, and while I've lodged an unreceived package with them I don't think that I should be the one following this up (I don't blame Techfast for the delay, as the world is messed up now, but if multiple customers have the same problem why is it left to us?).

        How does this impact our warranty, as at this rate 4 weeks of the 12 months could have passed before they arrive?

        • +1 vote

          Me too. I thought I was the only one. I have received the motherboard box but not the actual PC. It's sitting in SA since 31st March. Local Australia post here in Sydney said to call their support center. No help since they are only receiving calls for people who ordered any medication. I've submitted online enquiry but no response so far. I really hope I get my PC soon.

      •  

        Aus post are days behind with everyone panic buying

      •  

        Mine was shipped out on 31st March 2020. I only got it yesterday, so 15 days for Auspost to deliver it.

    Yeah still waiting for my 1600AF RX580 as well.

    Have you guys still got any of those GTX 1070 FE's left over?

    • +1 vote

      I ordered one with the 1070s a couple of weeks ago and got an email last night saying their recent shipment of 1070s were all damaged in transit unfortunately.

      •  

        same, but I think they're full insured, so they won't have much loss business wise

      •  

        Ah that'a a shame - thanks for letting me know.

      •  

        Ordered a 1070FE as well, did they let you know how you'd be compensated, replacement card etc.?

        • +4 votes

          I think it would probably be something like this (taken from another dude who faced the same situation),

          1) A straight swap into a brand new GTX 1660 6GB or RX 580 8GB. These cards represent the same purchase price dollar value to us as the used/ex-demo GTX 1070 Founders Edition in your order. Given the current market environment of far higher supplier prices and lower Australian dollar, this is the only price-equivalent option available to us and we are unable offer a higher spec card at no additional cost.

          2) Upgrade to the MSI Mech RX 5700 8GB, the cost for which is $350. Due to increased supplier prices and low Aussie dollar at the current time, this represents the current price difference in the two cards, and includes no profit to us - it is cost price only. We are unable to subsidise the cost any further.
          Other upgrade options into higher end cards may also be available - please advise if this is of interest and I will send pricing.

          3) The credit for your order applied to an entirely new order, based on the current available deals viewable at: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/deals/techfast.com.au. The new order would be prioritised for completion as soon as possible.

          4) A full refund with our sincerest of apologies for the inconvenience.

            @OnlineShopper123: Wow, that's a huge difference in performance.

            That's extremely disappointing.

            • +4 votes

              @BankOfThoughts: Agreed. I ordered a 1070FE myself, and received the same email. I was extremely disappointed in these options - disappointed enough to cancel my order and look at doing the build myself.

              I understand that prices have shifted, and that we are in an unusual situation - but I made the purchase in good faith. To offer me an inferior product for the same price, after I have already made the purchase, isn't at all acceptable. As I see it, they should be seeking remedy from the people who sent them damaged product, or the mail service that damaged them, not their paying customers. I won't be buying from TechFast again.

      •  

        I ordered one as well, was your one the GTX 1070 FE and Ryzen 5 3600? If it was, have you received your items yet because I ordered mine on the 17th of March and still haven't received it yet.

      • +3 votes

        Like, what are you expecting? Very clearly the way they get the cheapest prices is a cost minimising business model.

        Frankly, if you get the product you expect, and if there are issues they get resolved, then you can't really complain imo. This isn't some big chain that you get to go to the ACCC, it's a small business trying to get by.

    21 business days so far since my order was placed. Disappointing to hear about the delays in the email that got sent out and reading the above sounds like it’ll now be a longer wait.

    Yes they do great deals…but over a calendar month or more is such a long time. (Yes yes pandemic context etc)

    • +1 vote

      At least you got an email. I didn't even get that.

    •  

      Wow…21 days and counting. Not worth the wait. I would cancel seriously.

    • +2 votes

      Someone else in this thread said he ordered from one of their deals pre-covid and it took 45days. It'll get there eventually. They aren't as fast as their name would have you believe.

    •  

      Luke got back to me - all sorted now. While it's been a rocky ride I understand some things are just out of their control. Given how they have followed up I'd buy from them again.

  • +4 votes

    Luke any chance of a top of the range PC for those staying at home.
    A repeat of your 3900X/2080 Super with all the bells and whistles? (Good mobo, Gold PSU)
    Ideal if you can also bundle with 144Hz Gaming LCD so we can call it a 'home PC' and claim deduction/salary sacrifice this FY.

    Like the $2399 deal here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/511133

    • +1 vote

      I wouldn't have thought the presence/absence of a monitor would dictate if you can deduct it or not, more whether you were using it for work purposes?

      •  

        Usually people claim a laptop and its no questions asked so my argument is I need to work from home too but I am claiming the non portable equivalent. Thus PC and LCD/mobo/mouse

        • +2 votes

          A PC/laptop (and/or components) is either a deduction (at % used for work) or its not, regardless of peripherals.

          I believe the exception would be if you did not buy a monitor/display (and did not have one already) at all this financial year and hence did not use the machine for work (or anything else) before end of June. In that case it wouldn't be a deduction for the current financial year.

      Also would jump on a really good deal offering up a 2080 super, gold PSU, 3200 RAM, good MOBO. at $2000~

    Hey Luke, what's your email address, needing an update on my order

  •  

    Although u guys have a long wait, but still better than mine, Luke sent me an email saying my 1070FE got damaged during shipment after waiting of 10 business day, and cant be repaired, really unfortunate.

    •  

      What PC did you get? Was it the Ryzen 5 3600 one? Because I got a 1070FE build but have not received any emails about them being damaged during shipment

      •  

        Its the "R5-3600 | GTX 1070 FE Gaming PC [B450/16/240]: $917 + Delivery @ TechFast", u probably got lucky, I highly doubt that they just cancel the deal just because increasing price in 1070FE.

        •  

          Wow, I got the same one as you but did not get an email saying mine was damaged. Did all the 1070FE get damaged or just a couple?

          • +1 vote

            @Lickmywang: Idk man, ask Luke, what's his business strategy, here's the email: "Good evening,

            I have an important update on your order. We have just received our final shipment of GTX 1070 8GB Founders Edition graphics cards, and much to our dismay, they have arrived damaged in transit beyond repair and cannot be used for your order.

            This is obviously hugely gutting for us as it was a significant investment to purchase these cards, and impacts upon many orders including yours.

            We have considered the available alternatives in the current market environment and propose the following options:

            1) A straight swap into a brand new GTX 1660 6GB or RX 580 8GB. These cards represent the same purchase price dollar value to us as the used/ex-demo GTX 1070 Founders Edition in your order. Given the current market environment of far higher supplier prices and lower Australian dollar, this is the only price-equivalent option available to us and we are unable offer a higher spec card at no additional cost.

            4) A full refund with our sincerest of apologies for the inconvenience.

            Please let me know your thoughts.

            Kind regards,

            Luke

      I can confirm that the final batch was indeed damaged beyond repair. It sucks. All affected customers have been contacted via the email address used in their original order. If you didn't get the email or have had disaptch notification, your order is unaffected.

  • +6 votes

    Wow, over a month now since I ordered my now, still no shipment or update on where it's at, impossible to contact. I would assume that they were too busy to get back to me, but clearly the techfast business model is simple: take my money and run. It's basically wish.com.

    Lot of questions being asked here and enough of them to put people off from buying, I know I am at the moment.

    Yes it's strange times with a tanked AUD which is basically a peso now and then add in the virus and all this stuff coming in from China or other parts of Asia and it just adds up to a bad time to be buying some gear.

    The number of people here who aren't getting any communication back from the OP is a worry and when told to email rather than PM and still no contact then red lights should be flashing surely?

    Caveat emptor I'm thinking.

I know there might be delay or whatever reason due to virus that affect our purchase but at least you guys can send us an update

    I paid for my 3500x, 1070 combo on the 11th March, made an upgrade change that I paid for on the 16th March.

    PC arrived on 2nd April, wiped case down with Metho (yes I am paranoid).

    Been very happy with the PC performance, Overwatch and
    BFV - service and postage time for me was great. Thanks Luke.

    I do feel sorry for the those who have missed out with the damaged batch.

      I think the delivery time has me a bit on the fence at the moment. Looking for a gaming machine and something than I can do some amateur video editing on. Unsure if the 3500X is most suitable after seeing some benchmarks on YouTube.

      •  

        3500X is a good value processor with 6 cores and 6 threads. It's not going to amaze you with Video Editing as most editors are multithreaded… I would upgrade o a 3600 if you had a spare cash

        •  

          Thanks - did a lot of hunting last night and I think I'm actually going to go with a centrecom machine at $1699 which has all this and more, only downfall is the 5600XT it comes with but will be enough for me + extra hdd space, larger ssd and windows.
