Yes, after all, the Mega2560 is a much better deal at $120.50

{Or actually, he does offer an enhanced SMD UNO at a believable - for Australian sellers - price.}

I think I will (no, I just did) put in a more reasonable offer for that first clone - say, $5 (each for two!).  Perhaps others might do the same?

Obviously they think you Antipodeans have more money than sense. But I love the way the Australian flag is scattered amongst the illustrations, appealing to your patriotism. Apart from the fact that the advert is typical of the China based operations.

Well, the seller name sounds suspiciously Chinglish, but it is in Melbourne, Victoria (and they offer only to post to Oz) so perhaps the seller is in fact, a Chinese "import".

Now 15:20 and in the same time zone, I have had no reply to my "offer" so far.

I'm finding that in the UK. They are shipping the stuff in bulk then distributing it from a UK address.

Hey, don't blame me I'm Auussttrrraaliiaannn MATE.
Quite a few ebay sellers do as dannable says, all the admin in china, HongKong but all stock is offshore, anywhere but China.

Now who is going to buy one of those UNO, I know there are gullible people out there but anything I buy in ebay I do a search first to check out what everybody else is selling for.

It says "3 sold".   :smiley-eek:

He hasn't replied to my offer so far.  {One way or the other ...}

Sometimes ebay has promotions for buyers, say 10% off or something. Around that time, you bet someone has sold an expensive item or two to their friends ;)
