He does have some quite nice and interesting items listed, however it appears that he really prefers to keep them, perhaps listing them just to show off... :D

"magic48ges" is a well known member of our 48 community. He has contributed valuable programs for the HP48 series. And if there will be an Allschwil meeting this year, he'll most probably attend. hpcalc.org lists him with more than 30 contributions. A few marked with "get it".

I don't see any problem with these prices, PPC rom is overpriced but the rest looks ok.

Hmmm... possibly a market difference between Europe and USA. But, he does not sell outside Germany it appears, so not a factor for here.

But some real interesting items for sure!

Depends on your funds, of course. Calibrating against other prices on this European market, however, those are ... ummh ... elevated. He often offers definitely non-functioning equipment for start prices looking appropriate for functional devices. And plain empty cardboxes for prices I won't ever dare to ask for. I come across high-priced offers randomly and then find the same vendor frequently.

I don't want to despise his contributions to the RPL community. His behavior on ebay shall be assessed separately though and is - in a way - outstanding.
