Someone else paid for the other Super3 along with the EtherRegen, quite late in the day and Ken's payment hadn't come through. He sent it as I was responding to him saying it was sold and I instantly refunded it. It must have been a fantastic deal because Ken seems rather upset about missing out.

There is no seller feedback mechanism on this forum.  All we have to go on is trust that sellers will keep their word. My forewarnings had that in mind.

 

In subsequent discussions with the seller, he explained the circumstances and apologized.  Apology accepted as this was more of a simple mistake and I’ve made plenty of those myself.

I am super happy with this purchase. Kunjal is a true Gentleman. Very prompt with his communication, easy to talk to, and he was happy to not only answer all of my questions but also share his experience and knowledge which I am grateful for. Thanks Kunjal.
