    found a seller for £45 + an 8GB microsd. Is it legit? (not sure if I'm allowed to post link here, if I can I will. )

    so far i havent heard of any fake cyclos
    but, its possible.

    45 (euros right?) is like 60 bucks in US
    which is about right for a cyclo
    but if that price includes the 8GB microSD (valued at about 40$ USD)
    then i think something might be wrong
    maybe the cyclo is broken or something

    Actually, I got my 8gig MicroSD from FRY'S for $20 bucks + shipping. I'm not saying the deal is legit, but it sounds pretty reasonable, consider it being used.

    Have been emailing the guy and just ordered, seems like a nice guy. If all goes well this is an absolutely cracking offer!

    I agree with matrix you can find an 8GB card for about 20 and also tinymonkeyt it's pounds so it is like $73 USD so its basically the same price.

    But remember in the Uk everything is a million times more expensive a cyclods is £35 = $57 and a 8gb microsd is £25 = $41
    Total = $98

    The fact that I paid the equivalent of $73 is really cheap, including next day shipping!

    I am just wondering why you took the time to make two threads about the same exact thing and kept BOTH of them going.

    I'm just comparing it to my first, faulty cyclods, which cost £35. + this is a sandisk 8gb, which are quite expensive, maybe I'm out of touch with things

    Why did you order in Amazon UK when you live in the US?

    he cant live in the usa cause he says he ordered on the 20th & received it on the 22nd so that would be impossible
    im sure he has just set his profile up wrong
