I just bought a Hertz MLK165 from probably exactly the same guy you bought from. $300 and supposedly shipped from Singapore despite the user being a Malaysian.
Based on your experience, should I request a refund? (He hasn't sent it yet but I've paid). I told him I will raise a ruckus if he sends me fakes and he offered to tell me the serial numbers. I am not sure if this will be good enough and after reading through these forums, I read that you had them verified. However, you seemed to struggle to bring out the best from them and sold them on a year later. I am beginning to think that the potential bargain is not worth the potential risk and trouble. As someone who has been through the exact same thing, I was wondering if you could offer me advice and insight into this. I really appreciate it. Thanks Rob.
