I completely agree with the previous poster. In my work I regularly encounter people who have purchased products that are advertised on eBay, originate in Hong Kong selling for very low prices. In every case I’ve seen, the product was extremely cheaply made, in many cases not functional at all, and generally pretty much worthless. In some cases the vendor does have a return policy but if you look at the fine print, the costs of the return will usually exceed the purchase price for the product. In other cases there are no returns, everything is sold as-is. Be careful with these vendors! As the old saying goes … You get what you pay for. In these cases even less so.
