Nope, but it's been just a couple of weeks, nothing to worry about yet. But I would very much recommend to watch out, and log a refund request as soon as the ebay protection period starts to near its end - as mentioned, while I did receive the first delivery, it cannot be denied that things look fishy upon closer inspection.

Not worrying as it's only a tenner. Generally my locale is the slowest to receive stuff from China so was merely curious.

Could explain the Western Europe vs. Other price discrepancy. Probably something to do with the EU/common market/tax situation, though I'm not familiar with the details.

Ok, package not received with full price refunded. So yeah, this is dodgy, and you can consider yourself lucky if you manage to get the console for those ten bucks (I think I'll try one more seller, I don't mind lending them a handful of dollars for a couple of weeks).

My guess is they simply don't send out the cheap ones most of the time, and only have them in the listing to keep it high up in the searches.

Anyway, this is still a decent device, if you can get it for cheaper than the RetroMini.

Oh you got a refund? I'd better put an eBay claim in then. Yeah not looking good especially if no one else got theirs either.

Yeah, logged the request as soon as the expiration period was nearing its end. To be fair, the seller responded almost instantly and refunded within 24 hrs (that's why I think they didn't even dispatch the item, they know, so they refunded without questions).

Tried one more seller (for $15 total), but they claimed the item got damaged and offered a full refund after a couple of days. So yeah, it seems like the chances of getting a cheap unit are very low.

I can see a couple more units available for $15 or lower, but as they aren't all black, I can't confirm whether it's the hdmi version or not, so not going to try my luck again.

I can?t find one of these regardless of price. Anyone have a link to someone selling one?

Yes, they seem to be all gone now. Not a big deal though, as mentioned, they weren't really worth considering, unless they could be acquired dirt cheap.

I actually got rid of both units I had, all the firmware quirks got too annoying after a while. A PocketGo can do a much better job at everything, for the same price or less.
