    Question Is this GWFD1000MB-3 real?

    Hi,

    Seller on local board published this, saying it is new with stickers and asking 60% of Ebay's lowest price.

    I've asked for papers and more photos but until then - what do you guys think?



    I am not sure I want it and it is above my budget but seems as a good deal, too good to let go. And I do like the color...

    Thanks for any input.

    Your photo is not showing up here.

    If it is 40% off Ebay's lowest price (and new), it sounds too good to be true.

    Looks suspicious, or at least poor photo quality.

    I’m by no means an expert, but I don’t see anything that my novice eye could catch. Poor quality pic, but looks legit to me.

    Good luck with it.

    Only real way to tell if it syncs at night because there are some knockoffs that look so real but they don't sync with the atomic clock

    Op’s pic is not loading for me, but your depiction that the pic is of poor quality raises red flags for me.

    need more than one below average photo to go by. i dont think ive seen decent fakes of the d frog yet but you never know.
    also depends on how much that 60% less really is, if its around 800us mark then its not a steal

    Here's the OP's photo, for those that couldn't see it. I dunno... looks fake to me.

    Thanks but no radio reception in my country so no way to know.

    He asks for $615. The normal black GWF D1000 sells here for $1120 and the MB version was never imported.

    I had a chat with the guy. Sound arrogant. When I asked for more photos he said there are plenty of photos on the web. Brushed off my question on why is he selling. He did say he will go to a shop with me if I am worried about fakes. I'll sleep it over and see...
