This amazed me! I just sold a Ukulele (Don't start - I know it isn't Amiga related) to some one in France (I'm east Coast U.S.) Shipped it Paypal/USPS  Priority Mail International. It got these in 4 days!!
That is a record for me. True to form tracking of the package ended when hit an international flight out of Chicago. In the past shipping to France has taken at least two weeks.

China seems to be getting quicker for post too, or maybe that's just good luck on my part. I seem to be getting about a 5 day average from China to UK, pretty good. As for Amiga stuff on ebay, if I'm buying I make damn sure it isn't from Doomy (and my own feedback is 100%).

This one just changed from the card being destroyed, to him keeping it. Must have had some bad feedback on that one. The fool is selling two of these, and a 3000T. Makes me wonder if doomy's still around.....

It says he is in Oregon so I would bet it's him...


The shipping time is also pretty high IMO.

I hate having to deal with greed, though some stuff is so rare I feel I must make the purchase else I would not be able to live with my self.

Speaking of which, I just dumped about $500 in the past two weeks on Amiga Video Gear. :/

That's the same greedy so & so on eBay who constantly sells these...

Amiga A1200 4Gig CF HDD A1200 AGA/CD32 Top Spec : Buy It Now £ 37.50

Love how he boasts that his CF Cards are "advertised as blank" but come packed with tons of  "Pre-installed WHDLoad games for testing"... :lol:

But his best claim is "Only a special SANDISK card will let you play AGA & CD32 games & are becoming harder to find" !!!

WTF is this guy on... :crazy:

Don't forget this seller:

http://shop.ebay.co.uk/finestcomputers/m.html?_trksid=p4340.l2562

Chock-full of overpriced Amiga hardware. Then again, he does sometimes manage to sell stuff... It only takes one. It's the same mentality that spammers use, they can pee off 99.9% of their targets, so long as that 0.1% take them up.

Fools and their money...


@AndyLandy,
I think you are just jealous of fellow Amigans not as poor as you, with more money to spend on their favorite toys; or with bigger collections than yours. :-)
In a free country, if you don't like the prices, you can just go the next shop. :-)

Wow! £200 for an A1200 trapdoor ram board? I have one of these but without FPU. Who the hell bought that at that price? Those cards shouldn't be worth more than £50 tops. That makes it a £150 FPU chip...bloody expensive if you ask me.

"Push at the base of the card close to the amiga

If everything is aligned correctly apply pressure and it will slide in.

Great for Whdload games

I suppose he made a cup of tea as well inbetween rendered frames.

Its not posted, but there was some loser in Santa Monica constantly posting on Craigslist asking over $1000 for a well used vintage 80's video editing suite with a A2000/Toaster.

I looked at some of the Compused Ca Prices on other items, the IBM PC Parts and HDD Prices are insane.
I remember when they had a store on Yonge St. N. of Lawrence Ave. in the early 90's and their prices for used equipment was insane then too.
