Searching for HP Microservers on EBay

Recommended Posts

Helzy

Hey all posting this here as I am looking for two, possibly three G7 N54L Microservers and having the weirdest results searching for items on EBay. Being a canuck, I'm registered on Ebay.ca, however, this allows me to log into any other Ebay site and as far as I have known, it allows me to see different auctions in north america especially as not all Ebay.com users specify whether or not they'll ship to Canada. When they do not specify, you cannot see the listings on Ebay.ca.

 

Now I have noticed something really odd in that, Even on Ebay.com i am getting rather mixed results. I'm still not seeing the full listings. If I do a search for say 

 

HP Proliant Microserver

HP Proliant Microserver G7

HP Proliant Microserver G7 N54L

 

etc etc.

 

I will still miss listings that simply won't show up, they are US listings and the only reason I happen to see them as on a side bar EBay will allow you to look at similar items from your summary page if you didn't win a particular auction, I.e., "Show similar items",, Just wondering if anyone knows how to properly refine a search term that will actually return all related items as I am certain I have missed an auction or two over the past couple weeks while I have been in search mode

 

Thanks!

hah,weird eh?

 

So one of the ones I discovered that I cannot get to show up in a search for hell or high water is:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-704941-001-ProLiant-MicroServer-G7-AMD-Turion-II-Neo-N54L-2-2GHZ-2GB-250GB/400931584604?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3Da82774a2b1e74a41bdf9f92a4b13c506%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D400931584604

 

even if I take the actual listing title - HP 704941-001 ProLiant MicroServer G7 AMD Turion II Neo N54L 2.2GHZ 2GB 250GB 

 

and plop that in the search field for 'all categories it returns two G7's but not the one I just searched...
