I think I would be a little leery of this outfit, named "BJHKKJB?" When you go to their store site you see the business name is hezelingcongwangluokejiyouxianzerengongsi.

And (attached) is what you find when you look up their business address on Google Maps.

I've seen company names like that selling bootleg DVDs of Disney / Marvel TV series that were never released on DVD. Amazon has ZERO oversight. Buyer beware.

Think about it. What if you want to return the item? Best of luck!

Still there for me, too. I'm surprised, because I saw the good price for the reader last night and ordered it, only to receive an email from Amazon a couple of hours later saying the order was cancelled because the seller was no longer selling on the Amazon website.

Not sure what tools Amazon has to prevent a seller from just posting a new offer after their old one has been taken down.

I'd risk it. I'd use a credit card or PayPal and because I'd be buying through Amazon, I'd have some protection.

That link works, and I'm now seeing it.

(But the price is so low that I'm leery of buying it.)

BlueProton is legit; it’s the seller of the cheap Libras who is suspect.

well, I mean... earlier today when I checked that 119$/$99 flash sale, the seller of B09HSRGZRL was BlueProton

(unfortunately I just noticed the seller doesn't show in the screenshot I'd taken)

When I saw it up, which wasn't long, the white one was $99, and seller was "visit the Kobo Store".

I suspect someone behind the scenes is having trouble with the settings somewhere.

It would show "visit Kobo Store" below the product title, but upon clicking somewhere in the page I don't recall, a frame on the right would show up and display BP as the seller.

BTW I only saw that up when using a US IP; the sale wasn't available in my country. Found this interesting.
