Some Ebay sellers seem to have a don't care attitude; they no longer want the item, and don't take steps to ensure you receive your item securely. I recently bought a beautiful condition TQ1 projector, it still has the original worm, which is the only concern. I was lucky to get it just above the starting price, and although I didn't really need it, it was too good not to buy if there wasn't a lot of competition. As usual when you pay by Paypal, you are asked if you want to leave a message for the seller. I asked him to make sure it was sufficiently packed to ensure it arrived undamaged. I have to pay the return postage if that happens. When it arrived by UPS it was in a single layer cardboard box, with absolutely no packing, he had just used tape marked 'Fragile' to seal the top. When it arrived the courier told me he thought the bottom of the box was going to give way, so I had to support it underneath as he handed it over. It's amazing it arrived undamaged, had he used Parcelforce, it would have been in more pieces than a jigsaw puzzle. I didn't leave any feedback.
