    New seller, two feedbacks, one of which was negative and indicated the buyer couldn't get them to accept a return? Yeah, I'mma say no.

    Looks like the seller's vanished since last night and it's now showing at £1k as the cheapest - guess they either got delisted or some poor buggers bought the five they were showing "in stock."

    Yeah, the old adage of if it looks to good to be true... if only they were that price.

    Relevant consumer pc hardware like that never has and never will get significant discounts outside of a handful doorbuster deals in Murica.

    £500ish, pretty much slap on half RRP.

    Ultrawide monitors have been full of these tricks on Amazon. Usually a reputable seller is hacked (password guessed, I presume), and they put up a load of listings at about 66% market price.

    Amazon will cover you as the purchaser, but I think there are pretty unpleasant financial consequences from all the orders that have to be cancelled by the hacked sellers.
