anyway, i guess i missed something, but how did you figure that site is linked to that seller?

Because he sold me a not for resale bungee and I complained, as it wasn't advertised on the page. He even had scribbled out the part on the box where it said it wasn't for resale. He tried to play it off like it was normal and how the scribble was just to indicate the color, and the small white box was to just reduce shipping costs, meanwhile I paid $7 for shipping (still have all the e-mails). I also had a red/baclk camade from bestbuy, so the box was the clear giveaway something was up. I googled a bunch of pictures and showed him what he scribbled out and the promotional boxes. He then gave me a return label, and I sent it back.

Now, when I was in the market looking for an ec2-a there was no stock anywhere for nearly a month, and I was looking everywhere. I was even on eBay and remember his name perfectly because he was the only one who had them consistently, and checking his selling history, he was selling them quite often for $100+. Didn't make any sense how he had so many and no retailers had them. I was thinking to myself, this guy has to be a reseller taking advantage of supply/demand Zowie is having.

So my return gets back to his location, and on a hunch, I check eBay because I had a feeling he was the reseller taking advantage of people. I thought "he got caught and wouldn't take the risk selling camades on his site and instead do it on ebay". Sure enough, the bungee I returned is listed the same day the tracking showed it returned, out of the same location rexflo ships (his store and ebay location are identical, down to the city), in the same box, and the same rare color of grey/white bungee. The dead giveaway was he had uploaded a photo with the same exact scribble on top of the "not for resale" print. He later removed all photos and used stock photos. You can still see one here he advertises as "white box". You can even see where he says "check pictures" in the description, but he removed them for obvious reasons.

I'll never shop there anymore.

Have not and never will purchase from Rexflo after reading these posts, will stick to buying second hand from OCN when possible and then buying from smaller eBay sellers with good ratings when possible.

That's pretty scummy. Sounds like a solid sales partner for FinalMouse.

I almost bought from Rexflo myself but this solidifies I'll never spend money there.

Thinking of buying the White EC2-a tomorrow, but I have one question. Would the glossy surface be bad for sweaty palms in the summer? Summer is coming up and my hands get a little bit sweaty in the heat.

glossy has always been terrible for me when my hand's sweaty, it becomes a slippery mess

Glossy is better for dry hands imo, the gloss itself creates surface adhesion. That characteristic + moisture kind of counteract each other.

True, I got super dry hands and I get a good grip with glossy.
However, I HATE the feeling, so I would never use it smile.gif

This new one is really easy to open, there's just one screw under the bottom feet and thats it. Also, the M4 and M5 are like the FKs and ZAs in feeling, there's no more pre-travel like on older models.

PCB is from 11/2016, on the box says the mouse is assembled in 03/2017
