Have you tried the HideDuplicateItems filter? ⁢emFilter.name=HideDuplicateItems⁢emFilter.value=true In your example, it drops the total number of results substantially. Also, always good to use a current SERVICE-VERSION.

Thanks for that i will give it a go... weird, even on the main ebay.com site it lists the same number of results 1800+ but theres only about 160 uniques... i started working from the sample code and thats where i got the SERVICE-VERSION code from, where is the latest listed? thanks again!
