Cool Selling on Ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=013

The person who is selling this has a few of them for sale thru ebay.
I don't personally like this model, but i thought someone out there might want to check it out. Tell me what you think about it....

Tschuss

$300 is a very much ripoff given that you can get a 505 for $300.

Yeah thats what i was thinking, considering you can get a name brand product like the 505(300), or the kindle for (350).
Funny that the hanlin V3 is selling for 300 on their website. I think that the hanlin would be more popular if they offered paypal as a payment option.

The one you linked to isn't made by Hanlin. It's the M218A and is made by JCNIP. I have one.

I admit I am alittle confused by that though....
As the Jinke website has nothing but Hanlin for sale.

Ich habe keine ahnung.

I also goofed. The manufacturer of the M218A is actually JCNIP.

At any rate is the M218A recommendable for such a high price. And I have looked into some of the specs. I'm not to sure about it yet. Can you give me some insight?

Don't get it. It's a waste of money.

Nate, it looks sort of cheesy ... not really well made. Is it a waste of money in that sense?? Or is there something else that you don't like about it. I'll admit I'm not all that impressed with the specs. (Max of 1 GB memory and such.)

No, the hardware is fine. It's the software that falls short.

I just asked the seller of this item, who is based in china, if he could get jinke hanlin products as well. He said he could get a V3, He quoted a price to me of $360. plus he wants $35. for shipping.
and he also stated that the Hanlin V3 and the M218 were basically the same, only difference he said was the screen.
Does anyone agree with that statement?
For some reason on these forums people dont have alot of bad things to say about the
V3, however the M218 doesnt look so good.
He also said he could get the other Hanlin models, V2, V8, and ... V9...?

Is this guy feeding me a line?
what do you think?

Stating that the V3 and M218 are basically the same except for the screen is a load right there. The software for the V3 is far superior to that of the M218. The M218 is LCD at 5" while the V3 is Vizplex at 6"
