Not sure if this is Milliways material, but here goes:
Over the past 2 months I've chain-ordered* a pci USB card from 3 different (?) sellers in China. ALL of them claimed that the card had a particular NEC chip, even used 'NEC' in the listing name !
(*: ordered the next card the day after receiving previous order)
And the 3rd time I ordered, I even asked very bluntly what exact card I would be getting and if there was really a NEC chip on it....
BUT, Every. Friggin. Time. ...they have just snubbed me with a VIA card, which is nothing like I ordered.
I am getting really, really, really tired of this by now.
And then the whole pointless dance of 'you can keep the card, and we refund only half ', again and again....
So, does any of you perhaps know of a tested 100% reliable source for a genuine copy of this card ??? (Chipset: NEC D720101F1)
Asian seller strongly preferred, due to shipping costs...
Last moron I bought it from has ebay item number: 232910195557. It should look like that card in the picture.
English is not my native language, so maybe I was not clear enough ?? Granted, the seller name being 'beauty_makers' 🤣 did worry me some, but I've seen them a lot worse, while being heavy hardware sellers:

- If I order this card from you, will you send me the actual card in the picture ?
- AND, will it have a NEC chipset, and NOT a VIA chip ??
- AND will the chipset be = ' NEC D720101F1' ?
- Just like in your ebay description and picture?
Thank for your letter.
