What you're experiencing with these units is the result of our warehouse crew intentionally "overpacking" this product.

Overall, I have had good luck with Ebay, both as buyer and seller. However, the downward trend started about 3 years ago when the rules changed and buyers started asking for partial refunds and the like.... blackmail if you will.
My worst experience was when I listed a 4-wheeler with a $1200 BIN and local pickup only and it sells within a day. The buyer never paid. When I contacted him, he started a song and dance about how he only had $900. I asked why he bought the ATV for $1200 and he goes into a spiel about how he's handicapped and poor and I should sell it to him for $900. At this point, he becomes abusive and starts making physical threats. Remember, he's local and knows where I live. Then he left me negative feedback that he bought the ATV and it fell apart right after he picked it up. Keep in mind that he'd neither seen or ridden the damn thing.
I called Ebay, who informed me that they would not intervene until the payment was delinquent for a week. I asked to speak to a supervisor and asked for his email address. I held him on the phone while I forwarded all of this loonytune's emails. After a quick read, he cancelled the transaction, wiped the feedback, and banned the "buyer". However, the whole experience, when coupled with several other scams, has left a very bad taste in my mouth. I have done hundreds of deals on Ebay, but I am reluctant to use it now. I've had a couple of buyers ask to return guitars because they didn't like the setup, even though I have language in my guitar listings that each player is different and that the guitar may require a setup to meet their preferences.

I'm not sure it was ever such a great deal as we thought it was... it just took a while to sink in how badly policed it was, how easy it was to stuff people and how few consequences there were for doing that.
If i'm not mistaken, there's only ever been one single prosecution for shill bidding in the UK... some people will just keep on pulling cr*p like that as long as they can.,

Because of all these same experiences I have had with Ebay and other greedy corporate businesses over the years has prompted me to take action in my own hands with the help of a few key people in place....
Very soon I will have a web site for everyone to go to for FREE and get what they want...... Sorry, right now I cant reveal details about it as we are about a month or less away from launch, It is going to work for anyone and everyone looking for something Stay tuned......
