I used ebay.ca to checkout a few minutes ago, $125.08 with shipping and tax. Thankfully the thread on SD was moving so fast, I think it got overlooked since I saw it mentioned and was able to check out without any slowdown

They are still available for me. I'm checking out now on another.

Edit: Just placed an order on another somehow. I'll see what happens.

one of the auctions had a qty of 2800 listed before it changed back to "limited qty" so dont fret yet if its still hasnt gone through. Ended up using ebay.co.uk myself. Even then it took a few tries, kept saying invalid item when i confirmed payment.

The invalid is most likely server errors. I got that with the 16gb initially and eventually 20 min later it went through.

They just got a ton of negative feedback tonight. While I agree the shipping at $19 was overpriced and they should have charged $10 at the most, everyone who bought it saw the shipping charge before they paid so I don't think they deserve all those negatives.

Man, I wanted the 32 GB one. I was waiting at 7:00 PM Eastern. Then Ebay went shit and the pages wouldn't load. Not that big of a loss though. $150 turned into 170 with shipping and 180 with tax. For a refurbished one with 90 day warranty? Feels like a rip off. Especially since a new one sold for the same price a couple months ago.

I can kind of understand the negatives for shipping(not that they are deserved), but why are people leaving positive feedback for them already? Not like they magically already appeared at their doorstep.

Yeah that is weird, I can't imagine leaving them a positive until I get the item.

They already sent a tracking #

$19 didnt really bother me what bothers me is i ordered 2 and they hit me with $38 shipping then put it in the same box [per the tracking number] i'll definetly be asking for some sort of refund and if that fails will file a paypal dispute.

On one hand i agree people who bought 1 knew what they were getting but on the other hand they really are simply profiting extra off those shipping charges, and in my case i got quite screwed. I'd have less ground to stand on if they shipped them seperate but double charging someone that exorbitant fee only to stick them in the same box is taking the customer for a ride. I mean nearly $40 to ship a 3lb box? Give me a break. And they get corporate shipping rates to boot!

Ebay cracked down on this some time ago, not sure why HP should get a pass.

It took them this long to fix all the broken ones they sent out during the firesale.

If you got it for under $200 shipped for the 32gb model, then you still did good. Still much cheaper than plunking down $500+ on an iPad.

I can't believe this thread is still alive and active. It feels like it's been ages since the firesale.

I was just thinking the same thing, lol. I remember I posted when this thread went live. That was six months or so ago.

Very nice of them to refund the full amount, I just left them a positive with all 5 stars. I was originally going to leave a low DSR for shipping. I hope all those people that left negatives revise their comments since I see they lost their top rated seller status because of all the bad feedback they got.

I've located one at a B&M store nearby...I don't know if I should pull the trigger. I was debating on getting a Kindle Fire, Blackberry Playbook, or now this. Any recommendations?
