Auction ends in 27 hours.

It's not mine, but I know that someone here would make a good engineer for her... and the price is right!

eBay lesson number 1: "Reserve not met". Chances are the seller has a several hundred dollar reserve on the unit. May be more like $300! No way to know of course until someone hits the target.

eBay lesson 2: Beware of seller feedback. 97.8% Positive feedback. What that means is this person has pissed someone off. So, let's take a look at the negative comment on things they've sold.

"WATCH OUT! GREAT AT FOOLING YOU. ITEM WAS MISSING PARTS. DID NOTHING TO HELP OUT"


While the other feedbacks were good, this one would make me reconsider his comments about the unit:

“this recorder has absolutely no defects case shows as new no scratches”

At the end of the day, it might be a great deal for someone depending on the reserve. Once you've done your homework, buying and selling on eBay can be very rewarding.

Good luck.

I'm not in the market, but I have been on an ebay kick lately.

The last few things I purchased were great deals:

Blackstar amp
Solid body acoustic
Korg Pandora mino

and a few other really cool things... thought my luck would hold out... and share it with you guys!

Oh I agree with you that ebay can be the place to get sweet deals. I've bought many things there and sold a bunch as well. My biggest ebay purchase: my car!
