Hell's bell's, I bought Quickloads new at full retail from MPEX last fall which turned out to be expired (and they didn't exactly fall all over themselves to remedy the situation). Being that it was Fujicolor Pro160s it was fine, I might add.

Would I have rather paid 1/2 price and known that it was expired ahead of that surprise discovery? You betcha!

Next question-- will I ever buy anything from MPEX ever again?

The traditional bricks and mortar businesses are hurting for a variety of reasons, not just eBay.
