    Hi

    I would like to see it working in a PC first before parting with money
    Copy on the contents of a windows DVD

    Or for a more thorough test format the drive (untick quick format)
    Look at serial number when about to buy

    Look for slight of hand
    Test good drive , get distracted and get a dead drive
    Make sure you meet him at his home


    If it was on Craigslist or some other websites I would expect a scam as it seems too cheap

    eBay should give some protection provided you follow the rules

    I hear too many tales of buying something too good to be true & getting ripped off
