I've just bought a Sansa Fuze off an ebay seller (platinum). Description includes the following:

"These are B plus GRADE units, meaning that they have been returned to a major retailer either as a failed delivery, under a money back guarantee, cancelled order or unwanted gift.
These units are all tested and checked and sold as B plus GRADE, sometimes there maybe a very minor cosmetic blemish or the manual / box may not be 100% perfect, but generally these items are perfect and indistinguishable from new"

Mine arrived and has some blemishes but nothing major. What does annoy me is that it is a faulty return, originally bought Oct 2008 and returned for refund Apr 2009 and sent for repair and then on for sale to me. All this is noted on a sticker on the box.

I feel that that is stretching the description of the condition just a little, as it is now well over a year old, but the seller is having none of it.

Am I just being picky or do I raise an ebay complaint for not being as described. I can have a refund but I have to pay the return postage to NI to get it.

surely its not as described. i wouldnt pay for delivery back to NI if i were you... raise a complaint.
#2
Would you have been happy if you didn't know the timescale of it's repair?
#3
Cant see what the problem is, you knew it was a return when you bought it,seller has done nothing wrong.
#4
"under a money back guarantee,"

Sounds like they covered themselves with this bit?

You want to buy grade A returns not grade B

I've wouldn't buy anything less than an A grade - B grade can sometimes be faulty (refurbished) returns - therefore I stay far from them :? !

well to be fair, it does sound like it is in B grade condition. I dont know about PLUSES or MINUSES but the way i see it:

A = very good to good condition, from an owner who looks after his gear
B = good to ok condition - looks second hand and from an owner who lets "nature" (like spillage or scratches) get to his goods

any lower and its " the owner lets his dog eat it"

I knew it was a return but not one over a year old and repaired.

I think you're right, strictly speaking. I just didn't expect it to be an item that was used for 6 months, sent back, repaired and then resold onto me without a little more candour in the description.

Buyer beware I suppose but I normally don't miss trick wording like this. It's not a great deal of money, it's the principle of getting caught out that's hurting most:oops:

Looks like he has covered himself but there is nothing to stop you leaving neg feedback,

I'd chance a Paypal claim too,opt for not as described.
#11
Paypal your best shot, but I doubt you'll win. Worth a try though. If the seller wasn't genuine he would have taken the sticker off, explaining the history of the player. Can you return it?Might be worth just return it if you aren't happy about it.
