I just got this keyboard from a lady on eBay for $18.90 w/ free shipping and eBay's absolute money back guarantee. This is a brand new, unopened, original packaging product with full manufacturer's support and warranty.

The next closest one in price was on eBay was $70. The seller above has never sold anything on eBay (just signed on in Apr of 17). I figured with the eBay guarantee, I didn't have anything to lose. I don't know how this person is selling them so cheap (they're $129.00 on NewEgg and more elsewhere). Maybe they're HOT or something. I don't know. We'll see... I'll be receiving it in about a week.

There are some technical workarounds needed to get this keyboard's special keys (macros) to work in Linux, but that doesn't bother me because I'll just be using it as a standard typing keyboard in Linux. I only game in Windows; and there, I can install the software and set it up as needs be.

Here's a link to the seller...

Get 'em while they're HOT! ;)

Thanks for the link V.T. I just ordered one so we will see if it ships. Well worth the price.

HMM... listing withdrawn. I smell a rat. I knew it was too good to be true. I haven't received any confirmation from the seller yet. I think I'll go visit eBay right now and see what's what.

I shall return...

OK, here's the notice I got on the eBay site regarding this sale:

Quote

We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Center to help resolve any problems you may encounter.

They make is sound as though the sale is still going through. I'll have to wait a bit and see what happens.

Here's another listing from another brand new seller (Hmm... suspicious!) for a bit more money:

I got the same msg from the E-bay site but when I checked my PP balance there was no deduction for the price of the keyboard. So I don't expect that it will ship :( .
I wonder what the deal is with the $1.00 higher priced sale.  Most likely both some type of scam.

Hmm... I didn't check my PayPal. I think I will right now, though...

Ah... the charge did go through on my PayPal and my credit card. I'll have to contact eBay and get the ball rolling on getting a refund.

Anyway, there's been an update - see post in this area titled: Logitech G610 Orion Red.

Now that you have bought another kb you will not need the BlackWidow. So if perchance you do get your hands on the one you have paid for you could send it to me post haste. :Muahaha:

Sure. But I highly doubt that I'll receive anything even remotely resembling a keyboard from that seller. I haven't had any replies to the messages that I've sent. eBay advised me to give the seller till the 19th to either send the keyboard or respond to my messages before I start the eBay resolution.

I'm in same boat as you V.T., but I can contact e-bay on the 17th.
this is like the upteenth time that I have purchased stuff from e-bay that was too good to be true & it always is & I always have to go through the rebate shuffel.
I haven't lost any money yet but wasted a lot of time with nothing to show for it.
you would think that at my age I might eventually learn but I still keep banging my head on the same wall. :) someday it will get softer.

Myeh... it's no biggie. I'll get my $$$ back. eBay is awesome when it comes to that. Unfortunately, you do have to go through the process. But,  like I said before, for $18.90 I just had to give it a shot. ;)
