No no no - they absolutely positively do NOT have the same policies. Trust me, I've been in that scenario as a buyer a few times. On eBay, there are lots of checks and balances for items being substantially different than ordered. On paypal (when the sale is not an eBay one) there is basically not much recourse other than for items that don't arrive.

No.... it's not. Where are you getting this from?

If the seller is SONY, or the item has a WARRANTY, then yes, the seller needs to replace a game console that gets a purple-square-of-death-and-darkness (or whatever) within that warranty period. But sales of used items, that explicitly disclaim no guarantee other than working upon arrival, do NOT carry seller liability for dysfunctions that arise:

I fail to see how your e-bay and amazon reputation is any more valid in this situation than my forum sales experience.

I figure out what is wrong, mark the parts and put them back on a shelf for someone to fix. That's sort of customer returns. Is it at all relevant? No. Is your work experience relevant? No.

Your grammar, spelling and arguments are breaking down way past the point of being comprehensible any more. I think I'll make this my last post in this thread

You really need to get off the Laptop thing...

Better check that policy again. Paypal DOES have SNAD claims. Paypal doesnt just let some seller sell an unawre buyer 5 kilos of gold and the buyer gets stuck with 5 kilos of brass..

The laser did NOT say "sold as-is/no warranties" if it did say sold as-is i would NOT have made this thread..

That's a valid point. I just re-read the original sales thread.

He probably wouldn't need to actually say "no warranty", as the absence of a warranty would probably be the default presumption for a used item sale in the absence of anything indicating to the contrary.

However, he probably WOULD need to have said "as-is" if he wanted to explicitly disclaim liability for any function-related issues.

You fail to see how my ebay and amazon rep is more valid than yours because you're afraid of aware buyers exploiting your plan to take their money and leave them with an untested item. Your machine shop is nothing like my customer returns warehouse. Yours is pure metal items..mine is an electronics warehouse. Used and openbox Cell phones, cameras, laptops, Tv's etc are sent back because of a problem with something inside. I figure out the correct problem and send it off to the supervisor with a quote on the refund or replacement. Your machine shop isnt even related to electronics. And who cares about grammar, im so pissed off at people not understanding how online sales work and how all sellers like you love to rip unaware buyers off..

Okay, how about a flashlight? Lets say a seller sells a maglite that he claims to be working. He turns it on for one second, sees that it emits a light, then sells it as "working great". The buyer receives it, uses it, and then the bulb dies after an hour. Seller is at fault.. How about, lets use your LPM then. I dont see your LPM's having any warranty either in your thread. So if the buyer buys it from you and then it stops working after 45 minutes, they're stuck with it..?

Good grief. 5 pages of this already and nearly no one (at least fully) agrees with you zdarkazn. Yes the situation sucks, but in my mind anyway you are doing much more damage to your rep here when Swim's.
