    Strange that they didn't show a photo of the equipment; just two photos of the manual.

    I think why he did not have any bids is because of the manual picture. But I read the add 30 times before I took a chance of loosing $120. If I get it it is a good deal.He said in the add it is worth $2000 so it could not be the manual or it would be mispresentation. But then I looked at the second add and started thinking he is trying to sell manuals for $100.Now that the money is on its way it is a waiting game.

    I wonder how much he is losing by spelling it densitormitor on each ad? I would love to hear what you get and when you get it. I am a bit leery myself, but we could use this for this kind of money.

    His english is no good, but he took time to thank two of his four previous buyers. Maybe someone else can get the last 810 for cheap?

    I have not received my X-Rite 810 densitometer yet but I noticed two more being offered on eBay for even better price than mine $50 starting price. I am not sure how to upload the link to it, maybe someone can?

    eBay is a great place, but can be really difficult at times. In over 100 transactions buying and selling, I have only had a couple bad experiences. It is not unusual for certain sellers to use the same photos over and over again for similar items. This kind of ends up in a crapshoot when you finally get the item. I did business with an nsfw (globalmatter labs) for a Busch Pressman D once and got stung with an inferior camera completely different than the picture. He sells a lot of Graphics, Deardorff's, and high-end lenses that way. Impossible to deal with when there is a problem. He made the mistake of mass-mailing all of his previous customers at Christmas and it started a posting flurry amongst us that revealed over 30 bad deals that had never been publicly recorded against him for shill bidding and inferior product. Sometimes eBay follows up, sometimes they dont, and it sure is hard to get satisfaction at times.

    Most experienced folks on eBay do not put a negative for a seller in when they have a problem because we know that the seller will retaliate with a negative.

    I think it would be appropriate for me to publicly apologize to the Densitometer seller ,it arrived today in good shape with all necessary tablets and the instruction book pictured in the add. I feel like an A** for thinking automatically it was a scam. So there you have it I am really sorry and I think because you all chimed in it made me recognize that I could have been wrong.
    Thanks to every one for your response and support.

    Hey Greg,

    it was a legit concern. Given the signs during the sale and the month wait, I don't think anyone will consider you as overboard on this. You've stated the retraction. If you really wanted to, you could edit your initial post so that someone who didn't read the entire thread would know.

    If that is the actual instrument then I think that they are mistaken. The one pictured appears to be transmission only. It does not appear to have the reflection head.
