I think this is the same seller who offloaded 100+ of these boards as used/refurbs a few months ago..

If they are returns, then they must be scrap. Beware unless you have a lot of free time on your hands.

The one in the picture has bent pins and a bent VGA. So probably do need a lot of rework.
This is not who I bought one of these boards through in Jan 2019, but IIRC there were multiple sellers about that time.

Am I the only one that thinks 100 bucks for 1 is still too much? I would pay 100 for 4 maybe and get socket damage only boards to try luck at getting one with very few bent pins.

i guess it depends on what the fix is worth to you. if you're looking at raw parts, a VGA connector is maybe $5. One photo shows a missing cap I think, that's less than $1. Shipping for such parts is $10. So, maybe for <$20 in replacement parts, some quality time with tweezers (for the bent pins) and a soldering iron and you could have yourself a fully working unit.

that said, it's still a gamble as they are not specific about what is wrong with each one.

regardless, in my OP I said they are likely to take less than $100. someone followed up and said they might accept $75 shipped. It's at least $15 to ship a mobo properly, so the item costs you $60 as-is.

Wow, how cheap do you have to be to risk 100 bucks on a bad MB in the hopes of being able to repair it?

Nope, not me. :)
