Well, it looks like from the pictures those parts were removed. Sounds like
somebody bought boards, modified them for their use, and decided to sell
them. and the description seems to infer that.
Picture clearly shows the parts are not there. Might have been a good idea
to compare it to the other pictures on Ebay to see what you were getting. I
will say its functions are somewhat limited.
Condition: *Used* *:*
Seller Notes: “This is a used Beaglebone Black Rev B. removed from a
control board, it's been tested & is functioning”
They have a money back guarantee.
