Thanks for the kind words. If it wasn't for the volume knob problem, there is no way I am letting this baby go for $300.

True you'd ask the going $400 :P

Folks, what do you think is a fair price for an RWAK100 in good condition with full retail packaging and accessories? I'm selling mine, but might have over priced it (judging by lack of interest). I know what I need to make it worth selling, but what do you think it's worth?

OK. I'm going to be really honest with you here & tell you what I'd pay for it personally (take with a grain of salt obviously; and I do regard you very highly as a poster here BTW :-))...

Me, I'd give you AUD$600 + PayPal fees & I'd pay postage obviously (the last 2 assuming I didn't come & pick it up & pay you cash, I'd pay you ~$640 if I did)).

I understand what you paid for it, etc. But the reality is (and I hinted at this in a roundabout kinda way in my post to Hemtmaker the other day), once you start using something (anything), you can't expect to get much more than 60-65% of what you paid for it if you decide to sell it (tops, for lots of things it would be 50% or even less), obviously if something is rare or a 'collectors item'/whatever, this doesn't apply.

You might find people (on here in particular) who will pay you more for it, but I suspect many people pay overs for stuff here. Using the cost of a new RWAK100 from Vinnie = US$895 & accounting for exchange rate = roughly AUD$985 (forget shipping & forget the AUD is around $0.93; you're getting a lot less than that from both PayPal or your bank) x 60% = $591 (or ~$640 if 65%). Basically if I had to pay postage & PayPal fees/whatever, I'd round the lower amount up to $600 & pay the extras (I'd probably pay you the higher amount if I paid you cash).

This is how I arrived at my figure. As I said, take this with a grain of salt & other people may well be prepared to pay more for it.

Thanks MistahBungle - all fair points. I might revise my listing as I have a tendency to start high to gauge interest (or lack of) if I haven't seen other examples to know what something's really worth.
