Anybody got any comments about this auction?


I say be careful and proceed with great caution!

Someone either got the deal of the century there, or got ripped off in a big way.


I hope that it's the former.

Hmm. Let's see. The seller first registered on May 22. The auction is a private auction so communication between buyers/lurkers is reduced. The seller has no feedback whatsoever. I'll bet this is a wire transfer only type deal.


If it is legit I'll bet the projector was stolen sometime in it's history.

Yeah, quit looking to eBay to solve all your HT projector needs! If you cannot get a good deal from someone one AVS, from a contact yielded through someone on AVS, or through the Kwon exchange, forget it.


I could sell you the same projector for $1995.00, but I would also make sure you never get anything but an empty box and a TransUnion receipt of transfer.


Oh, and a nice Thank You!

I figured there'd be some comments!


I tried contacting the seller by telephone, but the person who answered had never heard of the seller's "name", nor did they know anything about a projector on eBay.


I hope no one got stung by this.


Many reputable private parties and businesses sell stuff, including projectors, on eBay. I guess this case illustrates the downside of what can happen in a "free market".

If you look at the item, the seller (who only recently registered) has a "-1" feedback. This means: only one comment and it is negative.


The one comment is from the buyer, who complains that the money must be sent to Spain!


I sent him (the unfortunate buyer) an email advising him to be careful.

yeah...i actually e-mailed them and three days later got a response. and they tell me there is a reserve of 2890 dollars on the item...hmm, can you make your own private not showing on e-bay reserve price? i would only go with respected sellers from ebay, like companys that sell projectors and might be selling them at discount prices :)

What is really sorry about this condition is that there are actually people bidding on them. I'd like a 550 (Ferrari), but I doubt I'm gonna get a new one for anything less than 6 figures.

I see that there are also Sony 10HT and Sony 11HT items for sale by this seller...and they are equally suspect, and just as low priced.


...careful....
