Dear Norm and others,

Had the same experience with the seller.... (Maybe it was the "same" 
counter?) Got my money back finally, but it took several weeks. We 
agreed on the refund of the money for the unit and the shipping. I kept 
the "wacky" counter as a "refund" for the customs duties and taxes I had 
to pay. Shortly after, I bought an 5370B from a non-technical seller, 
which came perfectly packed, even better cosmetic condition and works 
perfectly..... for a lower price!
