    Cheap Shuttle from Bigpockets

    Has anyone has issues with the Shuttles they bought recently from Big Pockets?

    Firstly remember they were cheap, but they were sold as brand new.

    Personally I bought 2*SK41g's and 1*SS51g.

    The SS51g didn't like a few P4 chips I tried.

    The SK41g was never happy, various unconnected issues.

    I ended up using the SS51g, but e-baying the SK41g's becuase I got fed up with them.

    A few others quotes:

    yeah ditto, bigpockets sent me a b0rked shuttle, so ive gotta send it back at my own cost, which sorta sucks as theyve now sold out, so im gonna get money back so im losing out on a good deal, and paying for it
    Off topic, but what was the problem with the shuttle - I got one from them and it's giving me grief as well.

    sounds like they were selling off B-Grade or "Returned as Faulty" stock that they thought "ah this will work"..

    The boxes I got were in 'new' condition.

    They sold about 300+ so maybe we're just the unlucky ones.

    I got about £77 on e-bay for my £65 shuttle so I covered my costs, some people were luckier and got higher spec models for the same £65.
