    Hi guys I'm thinking about buying aDell Axim X50v

    £304 over here from Dell but I've seen them on Ebay brand new from the states for about £200 then about £30 for shipping. What are the advantages and disadvantages from buying like that? Is it worth saving £70 to buy it like that. Has anybody ever brought one from a Ebay supplier? and if so got any links to them?

    Has any body got a Axim X50v who can comment on it?

    Cheers Guys

    :lease:

    i bought one about a year ago and it was fine. they're normally marked as gifts or cheap items and normally don't get checked. there is a little luck involved, but you should be ok.

    Mine was a refurb unit. worked fine and didn't have a mark on it, but you may want to check if getting a refurb troubles you.
