I find platinum forks give optimum friction between food and fork ;)

One is light and cheap, but is weak and breaks down in hot water. At least the ones I've used.

 

Another disinfects itself, but is more expensive and tarnishes over time.

 

The last is tougher and will stay sparkling bright for years on end.

 

 

 

It's all about needs.

Why are some of you guys surprised at the HE90 listing? His been selling that same serial number unit for over 2 years now. And there is a good reason why he is banned from here - don't flip sales.

Why is that a no no on here? I've been doing it with broken electronics and airsoft guns on ebay/craiglist/other forums for quite a while.

I think its because Head-Fi is suppossed to be a more friendly environment, its more about "sharing" your headphones, not making money. Ebay is for making bank, so flipping on ebay is fine :)

Well put it this way in regards to headphones, would it be fair to buy something for $500 brand new, use it a little and then sell it off for $900? It is not good will here of turning sales around and flipping for profit and cash.

 

A number of people have been caught flipping and banned here, there is a thread dedicated as a disclaimer for people to avoid certain flippers, present on ebay as well.

A bargain compared to what the asking price of the HE-90 is.
