What is an xoxio???
The reputable builders have already been named in this thread at least once
A x0xi0 is essentially a x0xb0x with all the mods/extra's. But these have been faked/copied too (and are sold on ebay). Officially, you can only get them from here: x0xi0
unless used of course.
Not cheap though.

But in short, these are the cheaply made ones that ebay got flooded with. And as already pointed out in this thread, there are better places to get one from.
If yours is a good one, then think yourself lucky
