That's great Old HACer! I wonder what QoG is paying iSPAN for them? It has to be more ~$125 or so don't you think?

My guess is $100usd per camera. Just a guess, though.

not true you must purchase in lotts , pay import fees or custome fees, tax fee exemt forms, and cost

so the camera may be 100.00 total after all that



the 18.00 and up shiping covers his or her losses partially on the net so I believe take 75 percent ofthe tretail price and you got your figure



so what is msrp on it?:G

The diminishing prices would suggest the market for hybrids in North America is being saturated. At least on the Internet/eBay.

That's too bad, because it means sellers will be less likely to offer them for sale. That bargain may not be so hot in the long run.

It would appear they have captured the "low hanging fruit" demand created by word of mouth and forums such as this. DigiLife, iSPAN, et all need to create demand going forward. They need to build distribution channels and promote (advertise) the product better in North America. QoG selling on ebay isn't much of a disti channel! I seem to recall Radio Shack offering a hybrid at Christmas, for example. They could also try a bundling deal with the likes of Dell or Gateway. Buy a PC and it comes with a free hybrid! Maybe a hybrid private labeled by Dell or Gateway. Then the PC really costs you $150 more but there's more perceived value.

Yes Isambo you are Quite right, I have made a review and did not place damper o even gave it high expectations. but to have

1. no warranty

2. no refunds on a purchase, only on D.O.A (dead on arrivals)

3.open items (missing parts , due to inspection)

and more.

I rather purchase a new camera that is sealed, and has a warranty card, and know I can return it.

I do not mind if a seller inspects the camera, and even turns it on and records a video on an external card to find no crases.

I would like to recommend they Place the internal video of the actual camera being tested with video clip. so they can see what the seller did so no defects were there at all. but you know something they do not have the time to do that. it's asking way to much

so we recieve defective, missing parts, and opened boxs claiming to be brand new, and told to be sold a story , only to be resold on ebay
