    I often see $100 to $110 AEBS's on eBay and this price seems ridiculously low to me. My general rule about scams is that if it seems to be too good to be true, it probably is. Does anyone else find it unreasonable to fine AEBS's for this price on eBay or elsewere? Most sellers claim these are open-box resales.

    I did a search on eBay. It looks as though the AEBS (Honda Accura Intake Manifolds) are priced at about $140.

    I Love Acronyms.

    The current version has gigabit ethernet. The previous generation has 100mbit.

    As to anything on ebay, do your research first.

    I can a brand new one for $119.99 CDN from Sig Electronics (I don't know how they sell them cheaper than Apple - I might get another Express from them for $69).

    I got mine on eBay for about $125 after shipping. Mine was a buyout from Circuit City, and has run flawless for about 3 months. It still had the Circuit City price tag on it.

    Ask questions. If they don't respond, don't buy.

    Because the seller promptly responded to my emails, has sold over 1000 items (many of which are Apple products) and has earned a 98% approval rating, I ultimately jumped on an AEBS going for $100 plus $11 shipping. He shipped it immediately.
