    Do take this with a grain of salt - the seller originally only wanted to sell locally for $250, and I paid him $280 for shipping/paypal fees.

    He did only say it came with two wiimotes, and sent three - but two of them were either pretty jacked up from the get-go, or damaged during shipping, and the console itself looks pretty beat up. The pads on the nunchucks are yellowed and dirty and one has a bunch of sticky shit in it, and I kind of don't want to touch them without sppraying them with bleach.

    The thread claims the wii was "never even played" which is a statement that could be construed to mean a variety of different things, without saying them outright. I probably read too much into it, by expecting it to be in at least the shape that my daily-used electronics are in.

    He also literally threw the console, all necessary cables, and the controllers in the original box with nothing else - no packaging except in the outer box, which didn't really matter, with how everything was tossed into the inner box. The cables are basically a rats nest.


    All in all, I wouldn't buy from this seller unless I was buying locally and could check everything out for myself. Which is what he wanted to do, so I guess it's really my fault for expecting more out of his shipping - including, but not limited to, wadding up some newspapers to keep everything that was thrown in the box from hitting everything else. :hsd:


    Haven't yet checked to see if the console and controllers are operational, and to what degree.

    Everything was great! Received all of my movies in fantastic condition. He also deducted 5 bucks becuase he said one of the cases wasn't in the greatest shape... I got the case in and it was in fine shape (just a little scratched up) the others were perfect :bowdown: great seller!

    I was just browsing old threads I made. I read the thread where he sold the TV, he specifically said there was a red line and the TV was acting up. Read the rules, bro.
