    **DEAL IS OVER** .. for now anyways

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    $169 refurb, free shipping but you'll probably pay tax.

    Just giving you guys a heads up, this is a good price from a reputable seller. Hopefully it's not a repost.

    Mine is on it's way. I can confirm having to pay tax. First time ever at buy.com I had to pay tax. They said since it's a marketplace seller (B&N) their policies were in force.

    Yeah. I would prefer not to pay tax on it, obviously, but I did. Oh well. Still a real good price.

    When I ordered it on Tuesday, I thought I'd have it no later than tomorrow (Friday). When I purchase items from buy.com and select the 5-8 day free shipping, I usually get it the next day or second day. (They must have a warehouse very close to where I live because it is crazy fast shipping.) Then I remembered it was a Marketplace purchase and I would have to rely on B&N. It took 29 hours from the time the label was created to when the origin scan was logged. Doh!

    It says it's due to be delivered on Monday end of day. We'll see.

    As Inigo Montoya once said, "I hate waiting."

    Well, it showed up as promised by UPS. Having problems loading CM7 from the SD card and have posted in that thread. Hopefully can get that figured out so I can move forward. This thing is very impressive looking and feeling. It just "feels" expensive. Definitely not a cheap piece of plastic. Looking forward to getting CM7 working and seeing what this baby can do.

    Pretty much the same price that I paid. I bought from Buy.com and B&N charged tax.

    I was able to get one for the sale price - came out to $185 with tax.

    Honestly, the thing looked like new when I got it.

    Booted with the CWM 1GB SD card, full nand backup (came with SW 1.2) and then
    went ahead and flashed Nookie Froyo with the OC kernel - working great here.

    It's amazing to have about 5 GB of data space compared to my droid phone's data space!
