I just received a 20GB iPod from Taphil that he advertised as being like-new. Like-new doesn't begin to describe it... everything is utterly, minty fresh! I'm extremely pleased with this transaction and would gladly have repeat business with him.
My experiences with purchasing a ipod mini from Taphil matches that of Minya. The ipod mini was in absolute 'new' state, and better yet, he had carefully applied PDA protectors over the screen and the top and bottom of the mini shows how much care and attention he had paid to the upkeep of his equipment. Couldn't be more pleased!
