Just because something smililar was sold on ebay for a price doesn't mean its the product's face value.
Of course. I also factored in that it's a brand that I'd never heard of nor seen at any retail stores in my area.
You need to understand eBay is an auction site. price for same product varies in difrerent auctions in same day. If all you need to appraise something was an auction site, no one would need somebody else's help for appraisals. and appraisal firms would be out of business. even this forum would have been pointless.
However the reason they vary has many factors. For instance there could be no pictures of the actual item, or perhaps the seller decided to sell the item "as-is" that's a great way to kill an auction. The Seller might be using a reserve price or set the initial bid too high.
I don't know how long you've been on eBay or if ever, however because many appraisal firms were using eBays completed auctions as a point of reference eBay (and I also believe Yahoo did the same) made it mandatory to register an eBay account in order to search through completed auctions.
You need to stop thinking you are all knowing god.
I never said I was, and if you're not going to discuss this in a civil manner don't expect a reply next time.
and if you consider ebay your god here is an AP and PC Card
for $40 shipped on EBAY
If you're unhappy with the references for my previous estimations I can use Yahoo, Pricegrabber, Streetprices, or Pricewatch instead. Also if you want other people to take your posts seriously, cut back on the religious sarcasim.
