    I figured as much, but if you can get your money back in 6 weeks or so, is it worth the chance? 2 people bought already, that's not saying anything though.

    No. This is akin to asking "Hey if I stick my hand into this hole in the ground I'll probably get it mauled but it'll all be good in six weeks so is it still worth it on the off chance I'll grab something shiny rather then a rabid badger? Two other people have tried already and I don't know how its turned out for them yet but clearly that means its a good idea."

    Seriously, save yourself some trouble and just leave it alone.

    Exactly. I removed my post as I can't tell people what to do but why bother?

    When these monitors sell for 300+ and this guy is selling for 40.00 + shipping? I'll save myself the time and hassle.

    What if he sends you the monitor but it's broken/defective/DOA and you have to ship it back?

    What a PITA

    The best part is that he's a new seller with absolutely no feedback. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

    Notice how I said, "That's not saying anything though". Nice try with the clever analogy.

    Did I say at any point that I was going to buy one? No.

    And now they've all sold out. Man I'm gonna be mad if someone makes a post on here saying "Look what I just bought for $80!"

    I'd wager that's not going to happen, but still.

    Why would you give your shipping information, much less money, to an ebay seller with 0 feedback.

    edit: much less an international asian seller selling something for less than 1/5th of what it actually costs. Yeah, you're sure to get your money's worth.

    With that logic, ebay would have been closed years ago as nobody would have ever acquired feedback...

    Gotta start somewhere. It's the other aspect of the deal that makes it sketchy -- $250 of something thats going for $300? eh... thats the flag, not just the feedback rating...

    You posted asking if it was a good deal and worth a try on the off chance it proved legit as you could get your money back anyway. That is not something you would have done had you no interest unless it was done as a deliberate troll. :p

    I'd actually would've purchased it. What is there to lose? I understand it will take awhile to get your money back, but the possibility (regardless of how low) of getting a $300 monitor for $40 is tempting especially when you're protected.

    All expenses outside of the kick being delivered are at the kickee's expense.
