BCL Computers Complaint - Bad Experience With Ebay Seller - BEWARE

Review by Anonymous on 2004-07-08
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- On 6-11 I purchased an Elitegroup K7S5A Motherboard on Ebay from BCL Computers of Indianapolis, IN (http://home.indy.rr.com/bcl/).

The Motherboard was pictured and described as having the EEPROM attached. The EEPROM is a necessary component, and without it, the computer
will not run.

Since the advertising for the item contained a photograph of an almost identical item and a text description of said EEPROM, I purchased this
item based on my understanding that this component was still attached, as it had been at the time of manufacture.

On three occasions I requested that the seller either send the EEPROM or refund my money. I was told flatly that the item was sold "as is".
I contend it should have been sold "as is pictured" and "as is described". The advertisement can be found here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3486128292

The EEPROM is the small white square at the bottom right of the photograph midway down the page, and is described in text as follows:


\"SYSTEM BIOS

AMI 2Mb Flash EEPROM
Supports Plug and Play 1.0A, AMP 1.2, Multi Boot, DMI
Support for ACPI revision 1.0 specification\"


The seller refuses to replace the item or refund my money. I feel that I was duped into buying a computer component that is of no value to me,
and that the merchant should take this item back and try to resell it using ACCURATE and FACTUAL advertising.

Electronics is uaually where the biggest rip-offs occur on ebay. Seller's feedbacks usually reflect it. I see that the seller that you delt with went to hell in 1 week. Unfortunate, but you got off cheap ($16). You need to be real leary in this dept. on ebay. My screwing cost me $200.00

Im sorry this happened to you. The upside is that you dont have to use the piece of crap you won. SIS is very low quality, and unless you know something I dont, you were buying total garbage.
