    It's crazy how volatile the prices have been. FYI ebay seems to have it too?

    No the mini Pro is not on EBay.

    NOTE that you may indeed see mini PRO's listed on EBay from Chinese sellers. Read this fairy tale,,,
    Once upon a time there was only the Serial Hi-Pro/old-junk and the USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1)
    Then there was a flood of Chinese USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1).
    Recently GN launched an aggressive take-down of Internet sales of Chinese Hi Pros.
    **At this point no one can use the name "Hi Pro" and sell the Chinese USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1)**

    Then along came the USB mini Pro (USB 2.0). Tada! A new King is born.
    Now, Chinese sellers are re-naming their USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1) as a USB mini Pro to avoid infringement.
    Don't get tricked into buying the Chinese USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1). Get the USB mini Pro (USB 2.0) instead. It's cheaper too.
    The Chinese USB Hi-Pro (USB 1.1) is not a mini Pro

    What do you think is written underneath that blacked-out area preceding USB on the clone?
    Thank you for clarifying. Appreciate your insights! Seems that the mini Pro is also USB 2.0 speed (left) rather than 1.0 speed (right) too, decreasing the value proposition of the right picture.

    Thanks, they are on EBay for $219 (from Fujian Province, China). The third picture is somewhat confusing?? Also, the seller has zero feedback entries. I would still go with the Aliexpress seller for $208.

    The price of the mini Pro seems to have stabilized at $208 on Aliexpress.

    The one mini Pro that we saw on EBay for $219 (from Fujian Province, China) from the seller with zero feedback entries is no longer listed. So the mini Pro is still only available on Aliexpress.
