    The only reviews I do of toys are with a screwdriver. I have done a couple 'for fun' reviews a few years ago showing off poor quality items.

    In today's episode I rip open an "Ex-Games 11 in 1" game system. I have a feeling this "POP Station" like system is just the same game with 11 different layouts.
    Let's find out !

    You really need to do some research and stop it with the prices you are telling people. $4 to $12 per pound for ram. $4 to $5 per pound or a hdd board, a laptop MB as a low grade MB worth $1.25 to $2.25 per pound. A pinned green fiber cpu with no heat sink as low value. I could go on and on. Just because, for what ever reason, you can't or won't ship to buyers on this forum, doesn't mean you should give out bad information. This, combined with your lack of understanding shipping, makes it easy to understand why you will never make any significant money scrapping "cash in the trash".

    I gave up a long time ago on this guy.......He seems somewhat knowledgeable but he will continue to languish in mediocrity selling his stuff locally

    As I have stated before, you can pay my shipping costs without using your personal corporate/business account. I'm not going to pay $1.25 /lb to ship something that sells for less ( as some folks on THIS forum want me to ).
    I'm glad you can get cheap shipping, and higher prices than I can. Great for you.

    I'm sure Mario would send you a Fed-ex label and it would be under $0.50 a pound. Have you even tried that?

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    If it takes you $1.25 per pound to ship from Pennsylvania to Ohio, you're way overpaying. I can FedEx a box from Wyoming all the way to Ohio for less than half that, and freight last time ran about $0.35 per pound with our resident expert.

    Heck, for RAM, HDD boards, CPUs, and other small items, you could throw them in a Regional Rate or Flat Rate box and ship it for about $10. I can tell you from experience that you can cram 38 pounds of RAM in a Large Flat Rate Box, and ship it for less than $20 anywhere in the Continental US. I would never recommend cramming like that for more than scrap value RAM, because it'll be damaged, but on scrap, who cares if it gets banged up a little? You're paid out per pound, working or not

    It would be nice if you warned people of the dangers associated with many of the older ballasts. Mainly the hazardous carcinogen, PCB, that is contained in many of the older ballasts. Luckily, the one that you did had "no PCBS" written on the label.

    Also could note that non PCB ballasts can be sold intact to scrapyards around here they have there own category.

    +1 to both.
    I did one I was able to pull the wire and unwind the wire from the core. The tar was old and brittle and still made a huge mess. It had that not too good for you smell to it if I'm remembering right.
