I created this thead for users to ask other users' opinions of what items are worth, in order to protect our members from getting ripped off on other websites, for example TradeMe. Often I see auctions listed that are priced exorbitantly, and also second-hand products that are priced higher than brand new ones listed on PriceSpy!

I reiterate, this thread is not intended to facilitate buying and selling goods, it is created with the intent of ensuring users get a good deal when buying second-hand goods.

Excellent idea Josh. After all, Pricespy's purpose is to provide a place where you can find good deals and prices.

Well, in my opinion, the value of a case does not decrease with age, but rather with the condition. So if it is in new condition, I would say it is worth as much as if it was brand new. However, if it was in poor condition, it may or may not be worth much – if it was only scratched, for example, and you were intending on painting it anyway, it wouldn't really matter. So it is more how much is the warranty worth – and keeping in mind that it is a case, it is probably of minimal importance, especially for second-hand goods which you know are in good condition, as you know you don't have a significant manufacturer's fault.

Brand new? Then almost brand new price, surely? So probably between $350 and $400, and closer to the top.

Yeah I'd say about $350-$380, the board sounds like its more or less brand new, so all the seller has to do is give people a small incentive to buy that board rather than a brand new one from a store

Does anyone have an idea what a second hand Corsair 800D might be worth, about 2.5 years old? A few minor scratches - like tiny scratches.

Not a big market for these cases.

Hmm, maybe $400? People that have the money for those cases would likely only settle for brand spanking new, so you'd have to maybe drop it to a lower price bracket.

I found an i5 2500 on TradeMe, I want a quadcore because my i3 won't handle BF3 multiplayer too well, is $250 a bit of a ripoff? You can get them new for $270, but there's no stock anywhere

I wouldn't call it a rip-off, but def not the best deal for 2nd hand non-K CPU. How old is it? Any details on the setup (e.g. cooler)?

I dunno, it just seems like a lot to pay. I'm looking on Ebay.co.uk, there's some better deals there

They're not really overclockable so there's no chance it has been over 80c even for a second. No sadly :(

You might want to look at a i5 3450 for roughly $277, as it would be somewhat faster, and also have better resale value whenever you replace it.

I did. But the BIOS update hasn't released for my board yet, and I have no idea how long it'll take. If the update releases by the time I have the money I'll get a 3450/3470/3550

Good call. I don't know what ECS is like for such things though – what have they done with other boards such as Z68 ones?

Woot! BIOS update is out! Time to save up for a 3570k.. Fate dictates that I will be going Ivy, because I want my BF3 experience to be smooth :P

Any ideas on a BNIB USB Wireless adapter? Model is this: https://pricespy.co....ct.php?p=714374

Was thinking it'd be worth about $30-$40, because you can get them new for $50

Probably around that, anyway.

Hey guys, I've seen a Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router for sale, and was considering it to replace the cheap router that telecom provided me with, would it be a good option?. How much would it be worth second hand you think?

Well, it is listed at $440 on PriceSpy. So somewhere around that.

Yeah sorry didnt see it from the front page , crucial m4's are the best bang for buck ssd's around also as real world peformance between ssd's is pretty similar that splashing out for 500mb read and write doesn't really benefit you very much whatsoever

i would recommend crucial m4 , samsung 830 or plextor m3 they are all very similar in terms of peformance or pricing

gamernz99 knows what's up.

The real-world performance of Marvell drives is generally a lot better than Sandforce. Sandforce make their drives look appealing by having good heavy sequential read/writes, which to most users is fairly useless.

2 x during my visit, one for me and one for my gf. :) Who can resist the price? The lowest I've seen; 256GB model = 199.99 USD.

I asked for an appraisal, cause the 830 might be an overkill for my gf's build. So, I might use either the 330 or 520 I'm thinking of selling on TM. And, let this 830 go instead.
