And my posting.

On a different note this whole little tangent is out of hand. Both sides have been heard, INCLUDING the fact that he is merely tying to resell for his own profit. Yes I don't particularly like that he is purposely trying to make a profit off it because he's the only one you can get it from right now, but that won't change for a while and we can't do anything about it.

So lets go back to the original purpose of this thread.

a2heaven.com is selling these (it's their product after all)for $150.00
normal price. They are readily available and in stock.

This guy just dropped his price from $249.00 to what
it is now. I contacted a2heaven and let them know what he's doing.

I hope they hang him by his toes.

Agreed on all accounts. Scalpers can be assholes by overcharging. Scalpers can do us favors by having something available that is NOT normally available. Swings both ways.

This is a typical case of a mouse wandering into a cage full of cats and then wonders why he's being served for lunch.

Very well put.

here is one I found, https://www.ebay.com/itm/272919933144. I just love the description "Computer may not work upon arrival as item is very old. Tested and works as shown above prior to shipping, I am not at fault for any shipping damages and am not accepting refunds.", So apperaently if he does a horrable job at packing the 20 pound monitor and it crushes the computer, he just wont take responsibility.

For $1,000, why can someone NOT throw in free shipping AND package it worth a darn??

Re: THIS is Laughable!

Once upon a time I managed to devise a packing method for monitors or Apple iie computers to make them safe for transport. Unfortunately, it took me 4 days to finish it. 4 days of work to send something through the mail is very hard work.
