I bought it and it broke as soon as I plugged it in, then I got it fixed. I sold it on ebay for 100 dollars and the guy just sent me a message telling me it's a 175 watt not a 250watt. So I might lose even more money to pay for shipping to get it back. The guy who sold me this light is a piece of sh!t.
 
Did you buy it on Ebay? Did the guy have good ratings? If not, that might be the problem...not to say high rated sellers won't screw you over. It's always a risk, but I've never had problems buying from top-rated sellers. I always read their bad reviews to see if they resolve the problems w/ their shipping.
 
well now, that is your fault for selling something by just someone else's word...
 
I bought it from a guy on craigslist. How am I supposed to know it was a 175 watt? I am gonna do what it takes to resolve this, but it seems like I'm gonna lose money.
 
well it depends on the condition of it and what brand it is but i have seen used ones fron 40 to 100 bucks.
 
yea, that prolly is the easiest way to go with it, if the buyer is willing that is...

good luck, and now you know to look before you list :) hehehe sorry, not trying to be an a-hole about it, just trying to lighten the mood a bit :)
 
You're fine project5k.

He's lucky I'm not a con man, he already paid and left positive feedback before he got it. I could not do anything about it, but I know how it is to be screwed out of money, plus I have a soul. haha
 
thats rare in people of most today to be honest and have a good soul but i believe in karma so itll all work good for you eli:D
 
yes, yes i am, i'm also a legend in my own mind.... :mrgreen:


a soul? you have one of thoes? wow i figured everyone had contracts with the devil and had already traded it in... hmmm you are a rare duck sir.
 
When you buy off craigslist, it's always risky. I bought what the guy said was a 75g tank for $20. Too good to be true....first of all, when we got it home, I measured it, turns out it was just a 45g. Then, discovered it has a small leak. I gave it away free on craigslist, but made sure people knew it has a leak. Someone picked it up for their reptile. Oh well. Live and learn.

What is this "soul" you speak of? MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :evil!?!?:
 
It must be. Being a noob in the mh business is costing me a lot of money.

No worries ... It is lessons learned. It sucks, but your smarter for it. I could have saved hundreds if I knew better when I first started in this hobby.
