Thread: How to buy a mini PRO (USB 2.0 Hearing Aid Programmer)

  1. Default

    Long story made short... Buy the $229 mini Pro from Aliexpress. Avoid the $299 mini Pro with Free Upgrade Gimmick. This is actually a downgrade disguised as an upgrade.

    Geez, imagine that! Those honest Chinese sellers on AliExpress trying to rip you off. Heaven forbid!

    An anonymous seller that I know recently listed a Chinese knockoff/counterfeit Hi Pro USB 1.1 on EBay. It sold immediately, he received payment immediately, and he printed the shipping label immediately. Shortly after this flurry of initial activity the listing was flagged and removed. All of this happened in less than 1 hour. However, because the item sold immediately the seller was able to complete the sale.

    Time for an experiment!

    I'm thinking that the mini Pro USB 2.0 can be listed for sale on EBay without being flagged for Trademark infringement and/or Copyright infringement. After all, the Aliexpress mini Pro listings are not being taken down.

    Later this week when I get back to my modern computer, I plan to put my mini Pro USB 2.0 up for sale on EBay and see what happens. I don't really want to sell it. But if it happens to sell then I will just buy another. The experiment will be successful it the listing survives.

    It is interesting about that one Aliexpress seller offering a knockoff/counterfeit Hi Pro USB 1.1 as an upgrade gimmick to the mini Pro USB 2.0. I'm betting they have a gazillion of these and the upgrade gimmick is the only way they can think of to sell some of the unsalable Hi Pro USB 1.1's without their listing being flagged/removed.

    Anonymous? You mean it was YOU, who suckered some hapless soul on eBay into purchasing your old fake Hi-Pro.

    Don't bother listing the mini Pro. An anonymous person will report it to eBay as counterfeit and you'll get another infraction.

You need me on that wall. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you", and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post.

    Please excuse this documentation...
    Just in case there is a future need to be clear about some of the comments in this thread. The above was intended as a funny quote from a Jack Nicholson movie (A Few Good Men) about "You can't handle the truth".

    I updated the OP with a Free Upgrade Gimmick warning.

    Hi pvc:

    I'm new here. You seem to be the mini-pro expert. I noticed Aliexpress now has a variation for $166. It seems to have a slightly different name but it looks like the same thing.
    I've recently acquired the Costco KS7's. I have the Rexton software and have dabbled around with it quite a bit with the simulator and the Emerald S 80 6C. Of course I would need the pills and the cs44 yet.

    Would you be able to verify that this mini-pro is indeed the right one to get? I only ask because of the slightly different name.

    Thanks for all your input on the forum.
