Is it just me or it's impossible to send a question to this seller? For all I know, just the top two units shown on photo could have screens intact -- the description is pretty vague.

I'm all up for cooperation and having just one of us bidding on these, but how do we then split these if they are all of different grades/conditions?

You can ask questions towards the bottom of the listing (after the seller information):

Ask seller a question

Unlike the other seller, this seller is very honest in his description. This lot sounds perfect for the very talented Mr. Geek

No, but if you're having a problem asking a question, I believe that sellers can turn off the ability to ask questions.

Also any bidder who has specifically been blocked from a seller's auctions cannot ask a question.

A working demo unit supposed to cycle through different images, correct?

Unless the seller charged each one and restarted we cannot be sure if any screens still work. It sounds like some do but that amount isn't specified.

lol it looks like multiple people have been asking questions on the ebay website besides me.

The most complete response was:
"Overall cosmetic condition is good for almost all of these. Non Functiong Unit was nothing more than our testers notation to let us know these were not "real/working" units but rather Demo Units - so in this case - Non Funtioning/Demo Units means the same. Of the 24 units......2 have a bad screen for sure, 3-4 may/may not have problems and about 18 are good. So there may be as many as 22 good units or as few as 18."

I plan to snipe these at the last minute. Other auctions by this dealer too. What is a good maximum bid for each of these auctions? I can reship them at cost for whoever needs one...

I can accept PayPal when the time comes...

It looks like they also have multiple lots of 40. They will probably have more of these auctions after this one completes. They estimate 25% with dead screens, it would appear. And they show a photo of a damaged screen in their 40 lot auction...

I will make a high bid to guarantee I get that in the last moments, but please do not drive up what I have to pay or my cost to you will be higher. I do not plan to profit on these. You will see what I paid when the auction completes. Hopefully, the price will not go above what I consider a fair price for a used kindle, and a demo at that...

I will post my progress when the auction completes. I plan to win both auctions.

How many people here want one?

I want two. If too many people want it, I will just buy one.
Hope you win, finger crossed.

I am also interested in just one. Paypal is the easiest method. The highest bidder right now for the DX is me with $42.89. I'll be sure to back off so that you can grab it at the lowest price.

I believe it's all they have for K4 and DX models, as the auctions are listed for odd (as in weird) quantities: 24 and 27.

I'm up for a dozen (or however many are still available) of DXs if the screens are intact. Considering only 18 are said to have good screens I wouldn't go over $700 before shipping on that auction.

Since we don't know how many of the Touch/K3 models have broken screens, I'd say $15 a pop is a fair gamble on these. If the shipped (to me) price is kept under $25 per unit, I will take 4 of each, again, conditional on the screens being flawless.

I would also be reluctant to part with any money *before* these arrive to you, even tho I understand that you might be out for a significant chunk of dough if you win all 3 auctions. So let us know what your thoughts on the matter were.

PS. Maybe it's a good idea to create another hidden thread for discussing payments/money issues should you win any of the auctions.

PPS. Just a price indicator for the single-unit sales -- I've recently got two demo K3s for $35 each and a demo DXG at $60. The K3 was a Buy it Now price which lasted a day before I bought it and the DXG was an auction which I won.

Hmm.... I thought the lot of 40 was for dx models. I see now that they are k3. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, or I may have bid too high.
