Pretty much sums it up.

It is, but think also that is my story because i am living in Italy anyway... assuming that the ebay's person is living in USA and adding also the histories that Ksarul and Atrax27407 wrote a pair of posts earlier, maybe this Guy need to earn some money.
 
I am without a real job since 2016 and could be easy for me earn money selling common TI99 stuff at an high price to some chicken :P but i am and feel to be a true 99er :P not a just a poor seller ;)

I find it funny that he lists the cartridges as "no longer made," when in fact, I still provide them to anyone requesting that I make one. . .and I'm the one that sold him both the cartridge boards and the EPROMs he used to build the cartridges he is selling. He didn't put them together either, as I believe he had one of the other members here do that task for him.


Yep, two strikes against him in my book:

1) He misdescribes auctions as new or new old stock, and they are copies. Hes done this and still does this.
2) He did as you states and exaggerated or blatantly lies in the auction description.

The guy needs to be truthful and honest about what hes doing. If he did so, Id have no issues.

I was also nice about it and told him that his description was incorrect, as I still provide the cartridges to those who ask for them, but he failed to either acknowledge it or to correct the description. . .

Agreed on these points, for certain. I cannot abide the deception.

THAT speak volumes about his suspected character/ethics

edit: man, that sold so fast I could still edit this post, lol- already sold!

 

not ebay, but I'm throwing a link to the AA Marketplace listing for a gently loved TI Program Recorder that doesn't seem to read tapes anymore of mine.

Claimed!  :D   Thanks for offering this up digdugnate!  I've always wanted a TI branded one.  Speaking of, you should have seen the beat up old olive (avocado?) green and beige hand me down one I used on my original TI back in the day.  It didn't have the "remote" jack so getting it to work right was always so fidgety....ahhh good times!

it's no worries :)  i periodically clear stuff out of our bedroom- this is where all my vintage/retro gear lives.   I wasn't getting any use out of it whatsoever so was hoping it'd go to a good home.

Just pointing out the fact that if all you need are the .bin files, they are available for $0 down and payments of nil.

He has re-listed them and updated the descriptions to remove the "rare" and "no longer being made."
