Some should grab this -- $10 GWInstek Function Gen
« on: August 07, 2013, 06:09:44 am »
Was surprised to see this -- only a day left!

Let's try not to run the price up -- someone who really wants it should bid and let it sit at the 9.99 US. The shipping to Canada is under $30, so you're looking at around $40 total in NA. Pretty amazing!

Judging by the panel details, this looks to be the same unit (or a close relative) as the BK 3011B.

Looks a lot like a Kenwood I've seen too.

Darn, it's up to $38 US now... 10 hours to go.

Hmm, how should I phrase it? Announcing an auction on such a forum like this is not a very good strategy to keep the price down.
I delete PMs unread. If you have something to say, say it in public.
For all else: Profile->[Modify Profile]Buddies/Ignore List->Edit Ignore List

Even without posting on the forum you shouldn't get your hopes up because of a low opening bid. Many people will wait until the end, often a few seconds from the end, to bid. It's currently at $51 but could easily go up by another $20 or more by the time the auction is over.
