Default Ebay feedback help

If this is just me, say so, otherwise, here goes...

I bought a Nintendo NES (yea, old skool) off e-bay. I didn't get a power supply for the NES and I was expeting one. Maybe I shouldn't have. Here is the text from teh add (- shipping crap) and the poto. Let me know if you would have expected one:

Quote:
Nintendo NES System 3 Games Gun & 2 Controllers

Original Nes System
2 NES Controllers
SHooting Gun
1. MARIO BROS. & DUCK HUNT
2. Bayou Billy
3. Platoon

This system and the games are in very nice shape and shows a little wear, but all is in very good working condition.
The System, controllers, games have been cleaned and tested and all work great!!
All Items Are Considered Used Unless Otherwise Described.



Looking up the word "system" as was described, I get the follwing meanings http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/system

I guess I was expecting a working system, not everything but the power supply.

Well, the picture and description didn't lie. You got everything that was in the picture.
Shady, but not untrue

Buyer beware

Yea, I see that side to. That'* why I was thinking of posting nuetral feedback as they didn't lie, but there were many statements leading to the fact a power supply was assumed to be there.

I'm going to probably go buy one online toighht (they are really cheap) and also get a RF converter for it as well. Not going to fight this at all, but want to leave appropriate feedback.

Thats probably your best course of action.
Just take the hit and move on.

But make sure you're very descriptive with the feedback, so other don't get burned.
