First batch, brought from GBAX in UK. Has not yet developed a fault and therefore has not been returned to GBAX/OP for repairs. If you are buying from overseas, please bear this in mind.

Selling it due to it not being used as much as I thought I would. Has the battery case, Astonishia Story GP2X case and charger. No SD card.

Ship to worldwide and don't really want to go through the hassle of eBay as I don't want someone buying it that has no idea how to use it. Paypal, Cheque or BACS only.

I will pay up to £10 towards shipping (Special delivery in UK, most likely Airsure at least to overseas.

Parcel weight is 1kg and you can find the cost on the UK Post Office site: http://sg.royalmail.com

Starting price at £250, ends 14th Jan. Best offer by the end gets it.

i don't think the price was the problem. i personally don't like the "shipping to uk only" option ;) plus the cheque and BACS

Hmm.. Paypal option added

The UK only option was only because it costs a freaking bomb for insured overseas delivery :( and as it is a first batch Pandora but not developed a fault yet, I didn't feel comfortable to sell it to someone overseas only for it develop one and needing to incur the cost of send it back to OP.

I did have a few PMs from some overseas members (particularly in the US)...

I have been discussing this with a couple of friends. I tend to think of things in a very logical way (sometimes too logical), so I assumed that it ending on the 14th would mean it ends when the date could first be said to be the 14th: 12.00. It would be unfair on you though to expect it if that isn't what you meant. Therefore, if you're willing to accept my bid then that's great, but if not I understand. Just wanted to let you know.

So far, a couple of people have expressed interest via PM but no hard numbers so feel completely free to make a bid/offer to me via this thread or PM.

Cheers

Usually when people say "On the 14th", they mean "sometime on the 14th" - and often a time is included. If a time isn't specified, they tend to mean "at the end of the 14th" e.g. "I'll give you all the way through the 14th". Of course, multiple timezones complicate matters - is the end of the 14th in the sellers timezone, the buyer's timezone, or just *some* timezone?

Given his response so far, I'd imagine the sellers timezone, at the end of the 14th.

But then if it ends at 12.00, it ends on the 15th! Or would it end at 11.59? ;) Never mind me, I'm often a pedantic knob. :D Anyway, even if it means a fight to the death, this Pandora is mine. I've waited long enough for this opportunity. :ph34r:

Also, some people say "ends on the 14th" when really they mean "ends when I bloody well feel like I don't want to wait anymore, which will probably be sometime around the 14th" :p

Let's just say, this my first time trying to run an auction in a forum and I screwed up in so many ways :p

Basically, sometime around midnight and when there is one person left bidding :).

Oh, I see. I ended up installing the hotfix anyway, so I guess it did nothing. So yes, I received it this morning. Thank you very much. :D

Yep. I'm liking the case too. :) I'll have to check out Astonishia Story on my GP32. Now I've just got to figure out a few things like changing my password (probably can find out by reading the wiki) and setting up wireless networking. I'm very happy with it though, thanks again!

Wow. I never realised that the Pandora went up in price since I brought mine.. No wonder the recent Pandora's on eBay have been selling for so much, I assumed it still was at £200.

The price didn't go up, at least not by much. First batch was $330 (USD), now it's $350 (USD).

On the other hand, we have some people willing to pay a lot more to get it now, rather than wait (supply and demand), so prices go up on ebay, which makes people think they can charge more here.

For some it works, others not. But the OPTSRP hasn't increased substantially.
