MSI Subsidiary Caught Selling RTX 30-Series GPUs at Scalper Pricing on eBay

I saw this on Youtube when checking GN and Jays2Cents. 
Tom's picked it up as well. 

 

Quote

The subsidiary in question is called Starlit Partner, and it sells MSI products through its storefronts at both Amazon and eBay. The company often sells graphics cards for prices far higher than the official MSRP (in this case, twice the $799 MSRP), just like we see with scalpers.

This must be a nightmare for MSI when this came out. People are going to be reprimanded hard or straight up sacked.

 

Glad im still waiting to pick one of these up.

When I worked at Digital Storm, they had a guy who managed the ebay account and sold excess parts or used parts there, or whatever else and they also used a totally different name for that and didn't connect their ebay account to Digital Storm in any obvious way, though the difference there was that Digital Storm is basically just a reseller anyway. That place was always kinda shady on the internal side on things with pretty terrible management caused by an over intrusive father to the main owner... family run business. 

 

I could easily see MSI doing the exact same type of thing, but since they actually make the product it's clearly much worse, though I can't think of any legal issue with it.

The only real apology I see here is MSI being sorry they got caught.

I was considering MSI for a future build. 
I got mixed feelings now. 
I even looked at an MSI laptop before I chose my RAZER.

MSI makes A LOT of barebones laptops that get rebranded by other manufacturers/resellers. I'm not sure if razer is one of them but it's definitely possible.

If you really wanna avoid MSI, gonna have to do some research on exactly what you're getting, or get a dell.
