A word of caution regarding eztradein.com beyond all the usual complaints regarding valuation etc.

Sent in an old Dell desktop, estimated value $138.00, one month ago to the eztradein/eBay site for cash, and no update except for a receipt confirmation. Their website states 7-10 days turn-around, but one month has now passed. Called yesterday and they advised experiencing processing delays due to high volume.

I knew going in this might be a scam, was willing to take this risk, and now red flags are going up. System was 5 years old, fine condition, and shipped in original packaging. We'll see what happens. No huge loss either way, and was using this service as a matter of convienence. We'll see what happens.

Bah...all those trade-in websites for older electronic equipment (computers, cel phones, etc.) are a rip-off. You'd be better off donating it to charity and getting a tax write-off.

Received email confirmation today for value assessment $127.20. Decreased value was due to formatted hard drive capacity was lower than amount claimed.

Appears they are reasonably honest of their offer. Just a bit slow.

Can you please give me their CS number. I have shipped my laptop like 3 months ago and they were supposed to send me 283 for my old laptop. Now they are saying that they cannot enter the BIOS bcos of some passowrd (which I never set).

I am extremely dissapointed.

Thank you for your help in advance.
