You're getting hung up on my earlier semantic mistake .. it doesn't matter if the definitions are from a subheading of Electronics > Used > [Category], those category descriptions still stand no matter that I didn't see they were from a subheading, they're still the right descriptions and the the item doesn't fit the one the seller chose, so it was misrepresented.
I'm not, I'm just pointing out that Graeme has missed that, there's no use him complaining about a groundless point.

I agree he shouldn't be listing it as "Used - like new" but that's exactly how the listings appear and that's all I'm clarifying.

UPDATE

According to my daughter she's checked the listing on Amazon and can see nothing that suggests the drive is being sold as used, she emailed him back pointing this out & that it was misrepresented etc and he agreed to return the money without any argument.

I'm gonna have a look at the listing myself when I get a chance and I'll post the link here later, but it now looks to me judging by the perfect packaging and the price he's tried to pass this off as a new drive (probably an attempt to offset the cost of his shiny new 480gb ssd) and simply made a schoolboy error by forgetting to wipe it clean.

If he had wiped it clean I would have had no reason whatsoever to suspect this was anything other than a brand new drive,

As I said before, it'll be in her confirmation email when she made the order, easy enough to check that.

According to my daughter (Angela) there is nothing on the listing or the confirmation email suggesting it's used, anyway here's the emails sent back and forward

OK, none of those is the confirmation email from Amazon. Under Condition it has to say New, Refurbished, Used, or whatever.

Yes I know I will get her to forward it to me and post it later I don't want to pester her too much at the moment with it
