It's been several years i have no news from him.
The guy still has my old A600 mobo and my two pal monitors i wanted him to repair.
But he left me with a working 1085 monitor and changed the caps of my A1200 mobo (so far "for free").
So no problem for me, it's equal.
I'll just say : don't be too hard on him. From what i've read he's been through a nasty mess.
