I gave them a call and they said that I could participate in the auctions even if I was not a company. Need to get some questions about shipping sorted but from the looks of things I'm not going to purchase anything!

Is anyone buying those E5810As and would be willing to sell me one for a good price? ;D

Auction has ended, didn't bid on anything. Wasn't much of a bargain on the items I was interested in.

Attached is a list of the final prices of the interesting items. The price is in the "Current" column in GBP.

Someone got a good deal on the DSOX3034A ( £1625), at least if they were look, and a lot of the components went for peanuts or got no bits.
Also some of the rack stuff went pretty cheap and may have had some bargains inside.

I bought 2 boxes of components  - those Murata designs packs are about GBP 50,- each if you don't get them for free - so good deal for me I think.

BTW if anyone's going down there to collect it would be worth asking about any unsold lots. Also see if there's a dumpster!

Did not everything get sold today then?  The racks and components sound interesting, looking at the price list above the appliances were way out of my £ league.

I'd hope those Xeon servers didn't sell for much being 1st generation Core. Dave picked up similar done time ago. Other than that, everything else probably sold for a reasonable amount.

Maybe it's the Australian embassy in Bath and they're not allowed to export to the UK.

There are two different ebay item numbers 301854900730 and 291666672560

The 291666672560 auction has already sold two and has best offers going back to January. So may not be the same gateways.

Okay, so you speak about that specific auction in particular and not about whether the seller in question is selling LAN/GPIB gateway models of the same type in Europe. Fair enough... (i can only speculate, but perhaps those LAN/GPIB gateway models are sourced from outside of the EU and lack CE markings. And the seller perhaps doesn't want to deal with potential hassles from customs offices of EU member states, might it be due to the value of the devices involved or due to the seller being based in UK/EU member state. But i am just speculating here...)

Yeah, racks of misc gear are often worth a shot, you can real nab bargains that way.

I think the two auctions are more to do with how ebay lists actions in different countries when you perform a search. eBay will not list items if your primary address is in an excluded country, it also does different things depending if you list postage specifically if specify postage for a country rather than just international.

The CE marking would not matter, unless comming from outside Europe and into Germany.

It's used gear so CE marking is not applicable

This is only true if the used gear is already in the EU.

just thought I would sing EquipNet's praises - so far so good. They are reasonably organised and arranged shipping for me for my items - and is now without charge holding it until after Easter so it does not get stuck over the holidays (mine included)

So best service I have had in the UK since moving back in Oct (yes great service and honesty is hard to find)
