    I remember booting my M18X R1 up with a 15" screen i pulled from an old toshiba when i was fixing its bricked display, so it is possible to boot with a different sized screen :eek:

    But Good eye catching scammers tho! :D

    Yep, got scammed on a 4930mx and an iPhone 6s. The 180 day return window is just insane. Basically, your terms mean nothing and even 30 days isn’t 30 days.

    All my problem buyers are international. The normal problem countries are now just the tip of the iceberg.

    PayPal is useless.

    Don’t even get me started on all the attempts at partial refunds and veiled threats of negative feedback if you don’t agree....

    I no longer sell international on eBay.

    Even buying on eBay is a real pain.

    Turned on my ranger worked fine, started up siege and the ac adapter blew.

    I sent notice of this, just wanted a replacement AC adapter or partial refund to cover getting the cheapest available 240w off ebay. Seller claimed I was holding feedback as collateral and had the dispute closed with no recourse.

    This later caused damage to the motherboard I believe as I couldn't even really hold anything above 45w so 3.0ghz was the max I could hold due to vr limit. Motherboard died a month later.

    Fun stuff.

    Feedback as an eBay buyer means absolutely nothing as they can only receive positive ratings from sellers. Where you need to look is the feedback your buyer has left for other sellers. The best way to determine this is to do all your listings as a buy it now with best offer and immediate payment required. Whenever you get an offer, you can review the buyer's feedback left. More than once I've turned down better offers on items because the person had a track record of leaving neutral and/or negative feedback.

    As they say, never list anything on eBay you can't afford to lose.

    Scamming can also work the other way around. I bought a secondary Razer Blade charger from a seller. It didn't work (caused screen blanking when the original charger worked fine). Sent back exactly what I was shipped. The seller claimed I returned something different and only refunded half my money back. Since this was maybe second time in 20 years I've had something like this happen, eBay gave me a courtesy refund of the difference.

    Ebays a safe haven for scammers. I sold a gtx 980m and took pictures while making the parcel, send card. 3 days after buyer receiving he put a claim in saying it was faulty ( 2 capacitors burnt out). I sent pictures to eBay to show the condition of the card while packaging for delivery but they still decided to refund him and I ended up with a card that was trash. Never sell on there again. Had over £10k of items which I immediately took down. Never will get my business again.

    Had a similar experience, sold two rx 390x when the mining craze was happening. Never mined on them and guess what both from two different sellers came back faulty. 100% from modified vbios for higher mining hashrate as it was the most powerful gpu for it at the time. Saying oh it arrived faulty and is showing artifacts. These rejects need to be put in their place. Cant believe that PayPal was in THEIR favour. I got so mad I literally snapped both cards in half heatsink and all and threw them into the bin, I checked them beforehand obviously. I was furious that both my cards were now toast due to some STUPID noobs who have NO IDEA on how to use a gpu for mining. I hate ebay but it's my business and income aswell as my main job. I just cant stop selling otherwise I cant pay for uni :(

    I know what you mean. I still sell but now I don’t offer delivery. Collection only as then the buyer can see the cards working before making the purchase. Touch wood been ok until now.
