Several PPC cards on Amibench
« on: March 03, 2004, 11:01:01 AM »
I don't know if anyone else picked up on this?  There's a guy in Germany selling off several '060 based PPC cards.

http://www.amibench.net/cgi-bin/view.pl?type=sale&country=All

Do a quick find for "RolandGeiger".

I've been back and forth with emails and he seems ok.  The only problem is that he doesn't have a paypal account so I'd have to find some other way to pay.

Does anyone think I shouldn't trust this guy?  I've noticed the problems with buying PPC cards on Amibench over the past few months.

Cheers.

To be honest with you, I think you should get an AmigaONE or Pegasos, rather than waste money of this very old, horribly out of date Amiga Hardware.

I would even recomend a Cheap modern PC + WinUAE over a PPC accel for an Amiga.

Hey, I'm in the same exact position as you. I have emailed him and got a reply for the entry level Blizzard; which one has he promised you?
I'm still considering what's the best option of handling it, cos I don't like the idea of sending my money off to a stranger that is in a different country.
I have serious doubts on the whole thing cos the price he wants is quite low.

Yes i have brought the 240/060 Blizzard PPC card version. I am paying £160 for it inc delivery. I haven't got it yet but he has "reserved it" for me. I am buying it through registered post, but am waiting a couple of weeks until my Amiga is back up and running. I wonder how many people have tried to buy it, i emailed him a day later, he only has about 2 Cyberstorms and 3 Blizzards. Can anyone confirm (who has brought) that this geezer is for real?

Yeeshk! What makes you trust him so? Does his address look legit or is it a PO Box(!)?

Oh yeah, he said a payment method he could do WAS Paypal. I think, he mentioned it anyway.

lol, no; I'm not asking for that! ....Incidentally I have just got his address cos he just emailed me back. It's looks like it's crunch time.
Did you get your card with the SIMMs he was offering? Is that a good price he is offering for them?

As for the simms, £50 for a 128meg simm is pretty good. I got 2 128meg simms for £55 inc postage, that was a great offer! Ask haymiggan, he may hav some left.

Hi promised me the 210/060 Blizzard with 64MB ram for about £160 (cant remember exact price).  Either way he says he has several of each card in stock and has 'reserved' this one for me until I find some way of paying.

What was the method you used to pay?  Registered post?

Well, he promised me a 210/060 Blizzard with 128Mb Ram for £176 inc p+p.
When I asked if he still had the card, he said
"Yes - 2 pieces."
Do you think that means he has two (Or he snapped it in two!)
