    Stupid ebay scammers I found:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Maxtor-200G...766017923QQcategoryZ64462QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Maxtor-Ultr...766011870QQcategoryZ64462QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    there is no way either of these can cost more than $10 to ship. Maybe $20 if you have the shipping place box it. But both UPS and FedEx provide adequant insurance free of charge($100 value), and you can get an additional $100 for $1 at any shipping place I've ever been to. So the Required $25-40 dollars is for what exactly? People piss me off sometimes. Eh I guess I will just buy from Newegg, somethings I trust on Ebay, don't think this is one of them.

    cause, they are making it seem like a good deal with the price but making up money with the shipping, by ripping you off.

    I wouldn't label them as scammers since you will likely receive the stuff and all the costs are printed in the auction. I wouldn't label them as "ethical" either. They list like that for two main reasons - to attract people to the auction with what seems like a low price and because they pay less $$$ in ebay fees because the price of the item is less. I won't buy from people like this either.
