On another note, that seller sucks. I tried to make a deal with them for an 8664A signal generator they had listed on fleabay for a great price. Then at some point in the proceedings after I had called to talk about it, they jacked up the initially quoted price way up suddenly and acted like they were doing me a huge favor because their cal/repair lab "really didn't want to work on it". Translation: all they have in stock is broken and they don't give a shit. I didn't return their subsequent calls. 0/10 would not do business with them again.

Their used prices are also typically very high. I haven't bought anything because they refuse to budge on anything. Like $3500/ea for Datron 1062's

That too.  :wtf:

I've also heard from people I trust that they have received BROKEN used gear from them that was advertised as in good order.

They also like to "lose" or "can't find" equipment after it sells on ebay for starting price.
Happened to me a few years ago with some higher end Tek TLA plugins.

There was already a thread removed which talked about this specific ebay seller, not surprising since they themself then claimed to be "quick to litigate" in the thread.

As far as I'm concerned the more people who are alerted to the fact that they are shady the better.

Not that I'd be likely to look at their listings anyway since I'm typically looking for bargains in need of a little TLC but I'll add them to my ebay blacklist proactively.

Can't confirm the opinions here.
Two weeks ago we got two LeCroy AP022 2.5 GHz active probes from them. Perfect condition with box including all accessories and good price.
In January we bought a LeCroy SDA6020 from them and they were absolutely fair. I knew before the unit needed maintainance.

Regards, Dieter

I remember a thread where folks were really upset at this company, but I can't seem to find it. I found the following:

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

gee for $74k the least they could do is include free shipping!
