    I bought once (and only once) from that seller. The item was not exactly as described and would not fit. It took two weeks for them to answer my email. If I returned the item at my expense, they would refund the price, but not the shipping. Of course the shipping was 80% of total cost! Item still in basement and I don't even look at items from that seller.

    Welcome to fleabay. Enter at your own risk.

    I've gotten a few good deals from them, but in the ONE sale I made, they misrepresented a shipping deal for me, and then wanted to charge me extra for that. I don't deal with them any more. (eBay, that is.)

    All of his stuff is like that, the reason being is that Ebay's listing fee is partially based on selling price NOT shipping. Abaxo can dodge higher fees by selling stuff with low BIN prices and then making up the difference on the S & H. Might not be a big deal to an occassional seller but for someone who does a good deal of volume, the pennies add up (the "Office Space" scam). He sells some decent stuff but taking into account the total cost, the prices aren't that great and you can always find a better deal if you are patient.
