Anyone buy from Ebay?
I am considering one of the $230 BEL RX65 Pro units on Ebay. They claim to be brand new in box, not refurbished. Anyone have personal experience with a seller that can confirm?
Well you're always taking a risk with ebay.
If I were buying one off ebay... I would buy from someone who isn't a seller of detectors. Someone who isn't a big power seller. I would just look for someone selling just looking to buy something else or just to get some of their money back.
I feel like if someone sells a lot of detectors for a really low price like that, is hiding something. Maybe refurbished or something. Just my opinion though.
Good advice from TQUILL.
Whoever you buy from, ask to see a pic of the bottom of the unit to verify the serial # stickers are as they should be if the unit came from Beltronics in the US.
for more info...
Also, here is an example of ones I'd stay away from-
"Here is a Very Clean, BelTronics PRO RX65 Radar Detector. Seems to be a nice unit. This is part of a rather massive purchase of returns we made.
We have repaired this unit. Originally, "Service Required" message appeared. We did duplicate the problem, resolded and cleaned some junk off the circuit board near the waveguide. Since, it has been heated, frozen, banged around and we have not seen the problem after being powered for a week. We believe it is fixed. It appears to be in excellent working order. In reality, we have no ability to test it further. Just that simple."
= the above was taken from an actual auction on ebay!
Would you buy it?
What do you think about these...

Thank you for your interest in Beltronics! We sell our detectors factory-direct. Our models can also be purchased through Circuit City and Radio Shack stores, and a network of authorized resellers: http://www.beltronicspro.com/belprorep.html. Not all resellers carry the full product line, so you should give them a call to make sure they have what you need in stock.
If you are not familiar with a reseller, you should use caution or simply order factory-direct. We do not honor the warranty for products purchased from an unauthorized reseller. All Ebay dealers are UNauthorized.
