Facebook Marketplace is the biggest reason I stil persist with Mark Zuckerberg’s panopticon. There’s sometimes some great bargains to be found and being able to communicate with sellers in real time via Messenger is excellent compared to email. It’s how I found my beloved Canon DR-6050C!
Whilst browsing Marketplace over the weekend for cheap shit I don’t really need but gives me a dopamine hit, I saw two brand new, unopened Brother ADS-2200 document scanners for $500. They sell for $398 each at Officeworks and I haggled the seller down to $300 for both. An absolute stone cold bargain. Unfortunately, after a few hours using one of them, I understand why the seller was so keen to get rid of them – Brother’s drivers are fucking rotten.
