1. My long-term partner

By Janet Horn-Turner from Mississippi on Apr 29, 2011

I"ve ordered a number of PC items from brilliantstore in the past year. I am satisfied with every order I"ve placed and consider it the BEST on-line retailer in the business I"ve met.

2. Flaw but Good Service, Really Brilliant

By Mickel from NK on Jan 12, 2011

I received my A1281 battery within 2 days from when I ordered it. I was very happy to receive it so fast. Items from Brillianstore were much cheaper than original price. Just great and easy. I am a repeat buyer.

3. Apple A1281 Battery

By T.J from Wallace IDAHO on May 20, 2010

Last 25% Longer Than the Original Battery!

4. Flaw but Good Price, A good online store

By Nyankaira from Utah on Apr 18, 2010

I have to say it has good prices, fair shipping. While tracking interface needs to be better. I was never able to get tracking information from link provided. Always got message "tracking information unavailable at this time, try again later", which I did, and got the same message - even from different computers. Anyway no complaints on the product and service! Easy to use website, great response via the phone (question about my shipping address), and product was just what I wanted and got here quickly. Thanks!

5. 2008 MacBook Pro

By MacFellow from MN on Apr 12, 2010

I'm using the battery with a 2.4GHz Late-2008 MacBook Pro. With the 9600m GT turned off, I'd say I get about 6-7 hours on wi-fi, and about 9 hours of word processing. It'll go 4-6 hours with video depending on the quality of the video.

I had no trouble with BrilliantStore... received the battery in less than a week.

Oh, and it's cheaper if you buy it directly from BrilliantStore's website than Amazon (price is $10 more)

8. Run smoothly for Apple 15" New Version MacBook Pro, A+

By Kiki from Boston, MA on Feb 10, 2010

I got the battery for Apple 15" New Version MacBook Pro in a good deal. It performed excellently with the full charging. It lasts 4 hours and right on time for my daily classes. I'm impressed with the price and the quality

9. Two defective batteries in a row

By rksinc from Crown Point, IN on Jan 3, 2010

I have received two batteries in a row that are defective. Both batteries had same problem: the charging circuit does not work. Battery arrived with 82 percent power and works in my laptop, but they will not charge up. I had to pay return shipping charges to send back the first one. Let's see if they pay for the return shipping charges for the second one. The battery looks like it is quality. Must be a quality control issue that needs to be resolved.

BrilliantStore.com Customer Service Response

The problem was due to the communication code issue that lead to the battery charge not being recognized by the Apple laptop. The software code was addressed and corrected. Now, the new battery for Apple 15" Version MacBook Pro for A1281 is fully compatible and function very well. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions

10. Excellent Experience

By toni from Tennessee on Aug 15, 2009

A very smooth and efficient transaction: a Sunday afternoon order resulted in a Monday morning dispatch and receipt of the product (by regular "free" shipping) by Tuesday afternoon. At the best price on the Internet, also. And I was kept informed accurately of the progress of my order throughout.

11. Good Part Store

By christopher from Virginia on Jun 14, 2008

I had thoughts of a difficult transaction when I had to email the company because they forgot to send part of my order. The company quickly handled the issue and sent out the missing order and was received in amazing time. Very happy. Thanks for great service and a great product.
