Shady GDP XD Plus listing on Amazon
« on: October 21, 2018, 08:42:18 am »
Hello.

I've been looking to buy the newer GDP XD Plus from Amazon and have been mostly seeing it listed for about $300.00 CDN. It appears to be the newest revision, here's an example.

https://www.amazon.ca/GPD-Portable-Handheld-Touchscreen-Quad-Core/dp/B01B4ESXT0/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1540105482&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=gpd+plus&psc=1

The reason for my post is I'm also seeing one for about $515.00 CDN, and I've been trying to figure out what the deal is with it, why it's priced so high. The only difference I see in the description is it says it has a hexa-core processor instead of a quad-core processor, but the processor model is exactly the same as the other  MT8176.

https://www.amazon.ca/LANRUO-Touchscreen-Handheld-Portable-Hexa-core/dp/B07CG7BDGB/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1540105482&sr=8-5&keywords=gpd+plus

I've come to the conclusion this seller is just selling the same product at an absurd price using sketchy marketing to justify it. I wanted to verify here if I'm correct.

Thanks for any input.

That's exactly what's going on. These are 3rd party sellers that have their shipments fulfilled by Amazon. Both are the same devices and 1 person charging an extremely high premium.

Thanks for the reply.

I guess even though it shouldn't surprise me, in my head I just couldn't believe that someone would hike a price so much, especially on Amazon where it can be easily double checked, without justification.

Thanks again though :)
