The negatives for this seller have to do with people who don't bother to read the sellers terms of sale. Buying from this organization is a gamble. The items for sale are returned goods that retail buyers have returned to retail stores for whatever reason or discontinued merchandise.

Many times buyers return goods that are perfectly good... other times they ARE defective. Regardless of the reason, large bulk retailers generally do not try to resell returned goods to the public, nor do they attempt to repair or even return the merchandise to the manufacturer because it is not worth the time. Instead they are sold for pennies on the dollar to organiztions like "bargainland-liquidaters" who then take a picture, write a simple description and put the stuff up for auction with a starting bid of $1. This includes stuff from paper back books to high-end computers... everything is $1 starting. Some is junk... some works perfectly. "You pays your money and you takes your chances" and you don't complain when you get the short end of the stick.

I have bought from such organizations and have both won and lost... but mostly I have won. I have received merchandise with old address labels for Wal-Mart, Circuit City, Costco, Best-Buy, etc., from such resellers. Some was junk, which went promptly into my garbage can, but some was first class merchandise that I still use... including my digital camera, my DVD player, and my CD-RW drive.

Those that are claiming "mis-representation" and talking class action lawsuits are just crying "sour grapes."
