8 Digitouch on eBay

Post by TorbenGB »

A user is selling one bundle of 8 Digitouch (MacNTouch) keyboards for USD 800:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... 1026971612

Update: The seller has updated and clarified the offer. It's one bundle of eight devices. The new price is USD 1200 for all eight of them.

I think it is 1 for 800. The description shows what you get and states 1 of ... for several things including the keyboard. I imagine the seller meant to list all 8 at $800 each (in a single listing where you can buy any quantity up to the 8 available) and didn't get something quite right.

No no, I really do think that it's all eight at once. For one thing, USD800 for a single device would be wildly overpriced, and the title says "lot of 8" and the auction text begins with "This is for the last eight of these units" which also indicates a bundle.

If he's really labeling it that way and yet only shipping 1 unit, that would be borderline of cheating. I'll write him a question to clarify. I'd hate so see users get a bad surprise out of this.

The seller has already responded. He confirms that it's one bundle of eight units, not eight individual units.
He also stated that he'd "fix the typo", I think he means the listing of "1" that you referred to.

If only I had $800 to risk or blow, that seems like a double-your-money propositon (with patience, of course, assuming demand doesn't drop off). Alternatively, I could mount one on either side of every keyboard I have to get TS-like functionality and still have spares.

Sounds like 2 great ideas! It'll be interesting to see if anyone buys the whole lot.

At $800 for 8, I was sorta tempted. At $1200, not so much anymore. Interestingly, the seller says he has keyboard labels for them. I wonder if this is the guy that was originally selling the DigiTouches that were offered here a while back.

I was wondering the same thing; how else would you come by so many labels without an accompanying device? If so, the seller is Eric Jackson of Stenovations (~.com), but that doesn't make sense either because their website is still listing their steno keyboards for sale which is basically the Digitouch.

If they still sell them, why not this lot? If they stopped selling them and these eight units are the last remaining MacNTouch'es on the market worldwide then we might consider joining funds and having a small non-profit(?) "store" section here on the website.

Weird.

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

I wonder if someone offered to buy them just not through eBay.
