Beware of EBAY scam for SSD drives

Editor 16
Found 8th Mar 2013
Please be careful on ebay when looking for SSD drives!
There are some 256gb ones on for £9.99 claiming to be from the uk...
The listing was made from china and looks more than dodgy.

I have reported the listings in question to ebay and they will be removed shortly!
In the meantime...make sure you check out the sellers with an extra sharp eye....

Just a friendly notice

Thanks for the notice.

Let's just hope that people can see when something is clearly far too cheap.

Yeah! personally i am waiting for 256gb @ £100 mark (in for a long wait)
Did a lowest first and buy it now on ebay and there it was! Straight on to online chat and they tell me they are onto it!

Sad thing is... there was 1 purchased when i reported it...not there are 5 that have been bought!

Sorry, but anyone savvy enough to be looking at SSD's should be savvy enough to avoid these.

I stand by my comment.

So you've probably just cost a few members money by posting this crap. Not much help at all TBH.

Thanks for the link.
