Buyer Complains that 1.44Mb Hard Disc Drive Purchased on E-Bay is just Floppy Disc Drive with a Disc jammed In It - September 24th 2003

One of E-Bay’s usually happy customers has had their illusions of a perfect online marketplace shattered today when they received their latest online purchase.

Keith Wilson, a man in his early twenties, has been using E-Bay for sometime and until now has had a perfect experience. Unfortunately today that track record was broken.

“I was the highest bid on a 1.44Mb Hard Drive I saw advertised on the Website’s Computer Hardware section and after my cheque had cleared the item arrived promptly in a well packaged box.

“However, I was extremely shocked when I unpeeled the bubblewrap to expose the seller’s deception. What they claimed was a ‘1.44Mb Hard Drive’ was simply a Floppy Disc Drive with a 1.44Mb Floppy Disc jammed in it.

“Sure, the disc worked fine. I had 1.44Mb of non-removable storage just as I would have done had it been at 1.44Mb Hard Drive but it was not what they’d advertised. It would have been cheaper for me to buy a brand new floppy disc drive and jam the disc in myself.

“Many people have asked me why I wanted a 1.44Mb Hard drive and I have to explain to them in this ever evolving market place I cannot afford to buy something that in 3 months time will be a quarter of its original value. I therefore figured that by now a 1.44Mb Hard Drive can’t really sink much lower in value so quickly put on a bid."
