new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

Sony PVM 14M4U 800 line count.

L2 supports expansion cards right? Don't think it is one of the ones that can do 480p. I know 20L5s are commanding INSANE prices now. I was hinting at it earlier but I do think they are a little overblown compared to good VGA crt monitors. It's a different look though, and pvms are more plug and play. But at the same time it's not like I'm looking to sell my pvm either so yeah.

Negative no card expansion. Florida is a 👻 town for games as well as good equipment. Although I'm getting the 14l2 at a fair price. I have a s video 14 in with bad screen in burn and two 8 in ones that are just going to be used for monitoring (bless the extron crosspoint)

I'm interested in cotton 2 , but I'm on a spending freeze for now.

I paid a far bit for mine, but it is RGB/comp capable and in pristine shape (not that the casing matters but it doesn't even really have scuffs, zero issues with the picture). I tried to get the guy down on the price initially but he started with like 6 of them (including two 20'') and this was the last one left so I didn't have much leverage to work with.

As for Cotton 2 is you want it for sure and pm me an idea on payment time frame, we can probably work something out.

@Dashey I know you got it sorted but I've definitely had issues with eBay before. Last time I started listing stuff it took like 10 minutes for a VCR I listed to show up.

As an eBay buyer, can negative feedback be given to an eBay seller who dubiously cancels the transaction of a successfully completed eBay auction? As much as I personally hate to harm an eBay seller's rating, there seems to be little other recourse in a situation like this. Also, can the eBay seller retaliate with similar negative feedback once negative feedback has already been left by the eBay buyer? I know that used to be a thing; but, eBay may have since changed their policy.

If the seller is top rated, you cannot leave feedback for 7 days.

I had this happen to me recently, where the seller cancels claiming no stock. Anyway, I called eBay and was told to wait 7 days, obv forgot about it. And now I can't leave it frown

So, as an eBay seller who's auction's ended at less than the desired price, the simplest solution is to just flat-out cancel the sale, huh?! This way, the eBay seller's insulated from any recourse by the potential eBay buyer. Plus, the eBay seller can just so happen to find a similar item to be re-listed in place of the original one that was undoubtedly damaged, lost, etc. Wow, what a racket! angry
Gypsy
GameTZ Gold Subscriber Triple Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally Happy Birthday to Me

This is kind of more ridiculous, because they listed it as a $5 BIN.

I have had experiences like what you described though. I once had a seller after the auction ended low, try to squeeze more money out of me. He wanted me to send more money OUTSIDE of eBay. Wasn't happening of course, so he cancelled. This was years ago when I won a DVDO Iscan HD+ for $16 shipping included, lol.
