    Then why did you say you got it as a present? Starting your paragraph off with a lie isn't a great way to sell merchandise.

    I'd offer $500-550 if this were December, but no use for it at the moment.

    @adeelsiddiqui, thinking about it but it's a big price cut! LOL

    @Royal Ego, already out of the box, shiny new plastic ripped off and etc, doubt they'd take it back.

    If anyone doesn't believe it's bought, details below...
