While browsing Amazon.com this morning, I noted a bargain price for what is described as a new Tecsun PL-310ET: $26.54 including shipping.
This is a great price, but there are a couple of red flags worth noting and that made me a little hesitant to post:
- This item ships from Spain, so it’ll likely come via the postal service and may take several weeks to arrive if you live outside of the EU
- More importantly, the seller has no history with Amazon–their status indicates “just launched”
- The photo is of the Tecsun PL-310ET, but the item description states PL-310 (non-ETM version--thanks for noting, Joe!) I would ask the seller to clarify this prior to purchasing
If you’re willing to take a gamble, this might be a good deal. I assume Amazon would stand behind you–still, “Caveat emptor!”
