    17$ tablet on ebay?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/7-SmartQ-U7H...item2ecd31eb3b

    I saw that while looking for a new kindle. What do you guys think? It might be a really great deal or not I just figured I would share in case anyone wants to take a chance.

    normally i would say it sounds like a scam, but its only $17, even if it is a scam, oh well, not like you're losing out on much

    Why do you want to spend 17 dollars on a paperweight?

    I just looked at his other things and he has a Pi board for 15$ too and a led projector. Either someone is listing off stuff at a really low price or its legit. I think Ill take a chance.

    It originally retailed for 300 dollars and the reviews I read are that it was just too expensive for its specs. At $17 if it is actually the product you cant beat a 17 dollar projector even if it is shitty.

    It's probably a scam.

    Alot of chinese ebay sellers back in the early 2000's would sell wireless mice at stupid low prices like 1.99 with free shipping.

    You would end up with a super crappy wired mouse that had it's plastic cover painted to look similar to the picture they would show and then within 2 weeks you will end up getting multiple charges on your credit card.

    I know because I bought one and they ran up 200 dollars in 1.99 charges on my debit card and it was a huge pain in the ass to get it fixed.

    That might be true but I just looked at his feedback and people received their item and left good feedback.

    Do yourself a favor.. if you want to invest on a tablet, pay more. Raspberry PI is close to useless, those that don't think so, are still rocking Pentium 66MHz PCs at home

    These are only good for:

    Bit Coin cluster farming
    Act as a Linux Router

    Thats about it


    here is another use for it....I guess... sorta pointless....

    an R-Pi is only completely useless if you have a VM server, but if you don't there are tons of uses for them

    Well I bought 2 of the tablets and the projector/android box thing. If it comes its cool, if not paypal has got me covered. For 50$ its a chance Ill take. I still need a new kindle though. Good luck if you get one though, its one hell of a price if you do.

    Seems shady. Sure its not stolen goods?
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    I bought two. Used Paypal so they can't take my credit card and run with it, and eBay has the money back guarantee, so there's literally nothing to lose.

    His feedback looks good, I mean, the product might be pants I guess but for $17 it would have to be really bad to not be worth the cash. Pay by Paypal if you're going for it though, to cover your back.
