For the last 3 items I have bought of amazon, I have found some serious flaws with the way they are selling goods, they allow amazon marketplace sellers to sell items under a kind of amazon template for that item, without really having anyway to police such misbehaviour.
1: Misdescription : Seller selling factory refurbished or refurbished items as new, happened with a hard drive I bought.
2: No photos uploaded generally to show condition of second hand items etc, dependant on poor or possibly inaccurate word descriptions, makes 2nd hand book buying a lottery.
3: Not explaining that the warranty was also with the amazon seller and not the manufacturer.
this makes buying certain items on amazon a total lottery.
