That sounds like a weird situation for sure. But at least you got what you wanted for a better price! Let us know how the Apogee works out for you....

I then turned around and successfully purchased another, at such a reduced cost that I could even pay for Square Trade coverage (like a warranty). It should be delivered between the 15th and 22nd of this month.
I've had an eBay account since 2000. I'm not a great trader (never sold, only bought), and I have a 100% user rating. But I've never encountered a situation where the seller was the problem. eBay isn't very helpful, either. Okay, I get it -- eBay is just the middleman between buyer and seller, but when a seller just goes belly-up, haywire or goes radio silent, it would seem their customer service could be just a tad more helpful.
Anyway, I have an Apogee One on the way. I'll still have to fold over on the failed transaction, but that's a minor bother and a lesson learned, I guess.
