    seen them on ebay new for £170

    I wouldn't class eBay as a decent seller...

    Ebuyer have them @ 193 inc free p&p. Never had a problem with ebyer returns unlike the ***** cpy ive just had a fight with to take back a faulty one despite a note from APPLE UK saying it was faulty. (will happily state which cpy as soon as I get my money back but others have mentioned returns probs in these forums as well)

    Note that the Ebuyer and others that are sub £210 are almost certainly grey imports which is actualy a positive with these as
    1) Apple UK will quite happily honor the warrenty the same as if they were bought here but will replace with an EU one (Hence why I was returning mine to supplier)
    2) The EU ones have a restricted volume (75%) while th US ones are unrestricted.
    The one I bought from **** was defnately a US import.
    I have learnt my lesson and will now stay with the larger cpys that I have used in the past and will definately look at the returns info BEFORE buying from a new place. I will also search MSE and UKHD for info on the cpy. Would be nice if we held a db here rating the suppliers with notes of any probs.

    On a downside beware that all new Nanos and Ipod Classics have their TV out locked so that you have to use apples AV cables @ £39 or buy an Old Apple dock that will output SVHS.
    Almost certainly NO OLD NON APPLE DOCK WILL OUTPUT VIDEO FOR A CLASSIC OR NEW GEN NANO.

    Personally wouldnt buy something like this off EBAY but given cheapest on EBAY for UK New is £190 and most are 200+ why would you risk it?

    intresting! i used to have a sony hd5h 30GB player until it was stolen and i got the limiter removed on that as its way to low!

    so do ebuyer def do the US ones? i've just emailed them to ask but dont know if they will know themselves!
