Look at some of his stuff and they are all refurbished too.

Hes probably a govt surplus buyer.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with that guy. He's got some stuff I need, but there'd have to be a gun to my head for me to pay what he's asking. I don't know how he stays in business.

Wow. That's unbelievable. I just don't get it. No. The seller just doesn't get it.

This is a standard IDE disk?? That is just insane! It is not even worth the shipping costs in my opinion.

Yeah its completely outrageous, but you know everyone has to get paid some how. Even if it's taking advantage of people with shipping and bootleg prices. It's all about the money.

The prices are ridiculous but he's also a very stupid seller.

Who would pay almost $200 for a used 1.6GB hard drive when you can get a brand new 300GB drive for less than half that? :-?

He has 195,793(!) items currently on eBay and only seems to be selling (unsurprisingly) 150-200 things a month. Assuming he gets the stuff for free or for $1-$2 that will not even cover his listing fees, so what is the point? :-?

Most of the stuff he's selling you'd have to pay someone to take away - it is literally just junk.

Maybe he's a front for a money laundering operation.

Hes dreaming if he thinks he is going to sell even one at that price.

@Dragster, Yup karmanss is another one to avoid. :-o I live three hours away from him and he wont allow local pickup and charges outragous shipping as well.
