    Something doesn't add up.
    102 rating but nothing in the last 12 months.
    217 of them sold...

    too good to be true. Either a mistake or a con????

    Possibly a hijacked account?

    Very suspicious...

    However...

    Why not buy one and see if it is genuine?

    If it is I will buy 20... :Rofl1:

    Dunno but it can't be done at that price.

    Even he'd stolen them he'd still make next to nothing.

    Is it a switch sell ? "Oh sorry Sir it should be £249 but in view of my error I'll do it half price".

    me too.....may be cynical but worth a punt for £23.

    cheapest 80w i found on ebay is £99 so if, as brian said, its a 'switch sell' i'll just cancel the order
