  1. yep. I'm ocasionally shoping for knifes and HiTech stuff on e-bay and in most cases prices are higher than on number of e-shops, but living oversieas I don't have luxury to choose where to shop <_<


    Bottom line: not everyone that paying higher prices is a sucker :ph34r:

  2. It is not user fixable.

    Everything is fixible. Just sometimes it isn't worth doing it. (if you have waranty never try to fix it yourself. the same advice if you don't know what is tester used for :(


    first it maybe have something to do with software (reinstall firmware)


    then it maybe problems with LED's or connections

    ( backlight on screen is usualy done by few LED's (0805 or 1206))


    if not.. then you have a problem :D

  3. I have just used the standard alkiline AA batt. I picked up some Nicad batteries to try and if those dont work as well as I would like I am gonna try the Lithium.

    Ni-Cd ? strange decision. they have mutch less capacity than NiMH.

    IMHO NiMH 2100mAh or higher cappacity sgould work better than any Alkaline or NiCd batary for you :o

    and you always can have car charger :D

  4. IMHO Geocaching is silly. (oh well I’m getting my first GPS in 2 weeks, so maybe then I’ll change my mind). The whole idea of mature people running around with they hi-tech toys searching for some kind of “treasure” don’t sound that smart :(

    But, in other hand it is yet another little reason to go and spend some time outdoors. And some additional time hiking don’t hurt, at lest me :D.


    BTW I remember when I was teen I used to be embarised by my parents all the time (and they don’t gocache :D. Even now sometimes I do. And IMHO it’s a normal thing. We do belong to a different “culture”.

  5. Man! You are to nice to survive in this cruel world :lol:. As a rule of thumb with overseas shipping the buyer pays all shipping costs, even if the unit itself has problems. I occasionally buy stiff on e-bay and it always the case. Taking into account price differences (stuff I’m buying usually around 2 times more expensive in my home country even taking into account shipping cost and bribes for customs officers :lol:.


    Anyway, I think I’m getting my GPS form one guy from e-bay (final stage of negotiation :lol:.


    P.S. still you have best prices I ever saw :lol:

  6. e-bay is strange place. I'm in the market for Gold, and there is bunch of auctions is selling them 10 - 50$ higher than wal-mart. and people are buying. I cann't see any logic there :rolleyes:


    P.S. ofcourse there is always good deals floatring around e-bay you just need to shop around.
