    I wouldn't buy from that seller. They claim: "Check my 100% positive feedback" however upon looking up at their feedback, it says 99.4%. I'm not sure where you went to school, but in my school we were taught that you only round up when the decimal is a 5 or above.

    Fact is, their a liar.

    Seriously? Have you ever sold items on eBay where you have multiples of that item? People just set the item to end when all items in stock are sold. It's entirely possible that when the listing was written, the seller had 100% positive feedback. I am not saying the product is good, but jumping the gun and calling the person a liar is a bit much, don't you think??
