Crazy. I have found that eBay is increasingly a bad place to buy old electronics from. Personally I just go to the city wide yard sales when they happen and hope for a good find. Generally on eBay people seem to be dreaming half the time, trying to sell Atari 800s and C64s for extreme prices...my favorites are the couple of hundred dollar C64s with no software or accessories that also haven't been tested to work. No thank you. I would rather give $50 to the people who have had an old computer sitting the garage for the last decade and take my chances than pay a premium for untested hardware which has nothing with it.

The one thing I still kick myself in the butt over is the Apple ][ I got years ago for 5 dollars along with an IBM typewriter at an auction that I threw away. I would kill to go back in time and keep that Apple ][, but to be fair that was before I really got into retro computing and Apple computers in general. So that is on my wish list along with the Atari 800.

This one just changed from the card being destroyed, to him keeping it. Must have had some bad feedback on that one. The fool is selling two of these, and a 3000T. Makes me wonder if doomy's still around.....

That's him alright! He is also selling a stock A3000T for I think $700...:lol:
 
Oh, and to answer the OP's question, YES! We still love to talk and laugh about crazy E-bay posts... Over in the AMIGA MARKETPLACE (http://amiga.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=17) ;)

I once had a pile of Apple ]['s... and once landed a pallet of 1040ST's. The school system surplus sales and flea markets were gold mines... well- not back then; it was all just junk.

I do kick myself over a few, like smashing the Aquarius in the driveway, and telling someone his Osborne 1 was worthless and to throw it away, or leaving a full TI-99 with loaded PEB behind when I moved. And I really should have rescued a C= PET before someone I knew took a bunch to a shooting range...

Actually i think the A3000T is quite a good deal. Those things are pretty rare. Were there really less than 100 made?

I forget about the overseas versions of eBay. I guess greed is all over.
What really gets me are the people who say that if it doesn't sell, they will destroy the piece. That is insane, and I seriously doubt that that tactic works.

What pisses me off more is putting "rare" in the title, see it far too much on ebay, "rare Amiga 500".. there were millions of the things made.

"rare" and "tested" when they then admit its been in a basement for 12 years and they have no idea.

I'll say this much for Doomy, his threats of destroying stuff worked, just a couple of weeks ago on a thread here about a board he was selling (for the third time) it was bought by some muppet after he threatened to destroy it... :rolleyes:

Like him or not, he always comes up with some way of making a quick buck... :)

You say that now, but I only need one person to click BUY!!

:-)

OK, that's not me..  
But what's the phrase, "it's only crazy if no one buys it."

I also seem to have noticed when watching an item that I think is overpriced and not sell..
And then I see it posted again, for MORE MONEY????
Is the plan really, if it doesn't sell, you raise your asking price??

But, I still manage to get a good deal (I think) from time to time there, it's just not the fun it used to be...

Don't forget this seller:

Chock-full of overpriced Amiga hardware. Then again, he does sometimes manage to sell stuff... It only takes one. It's the same mentality that spammers use, they can pee off 99.9% of their targets, so long as that 0.1% take them up.

This amazed me! I just sold a Ukulele (Don't start - I know it isn't Amiga related) to some one in France (I'm east Coast U.S.) Shipped it Paypal/USPS  Priority Mail International. It got these in 4 days!!
That is a record for me. True to form tracking of the package ended when hit an international flight out of Chicago. In the past shipping to France has taken at least two weeks.

China seems to be getting quicker for post too, or maybe that's just good luck on my part. I seem to be getting about a 5 day average from China to UK, pretty good. As for Amiga stuff on ebay, if I'm buying I make damn sure it isn't from Doomy (and my own feedback is 100%).

I hate having to deal with greed, though some stuff is so rare I feel I must make the purchase else I would not be able to live with my self.

Speaking of which, I just dumped about $500 in the past two weeks on Amiga Video Gear. :/

Love how he boasts that his CF Cards are "advertised as blank" but come packed with tons of  "Pre-installed WHDLoad games for testing"... :lol:

@AndyLandy,
I think you are just jealous of fellow Amigans not as poor as you, with more money to spend on their favorite toys; or with bigger collections than yours. :-)
In a free country, if you don't like the prices, you can just go the next shop. :-)

Wow! £200 for an A1200 trapdoor ram board? I have one of these but without FPU. Who the hell bought that at that price? Those cards shouldn't be worth more than £50 tops. That makes it a £150 FPU chip...bloody expensive if you ask me.

If everything is aligned correctly apply pressure and it will slide in.

There is also a tiny cut in the top left  of the box about 3/4'' long. still attached but I wanted to make sure  all of you could see it.  its on the added pic.
This seller must be kicking himself! I'd say that's shaved off at least $500.

3000T040 is about 80, those are 'rare' but not that rare, cause I have 1 of them :)

Hi All,

Interesting thread. There are some crazy prices for some of these items - over $2000 for a C64...and someone paid for it! WOW.

Maybe not in the same league but this ebay auction I found is for a phase 5 233Mhz powerpc + 060 accelerator (128MB RAM) with AmigaOS4.0 Classic....

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Amiga-Cyberstorm-PPC-233-MHZ-Phase5-68060-128MB-FAstRam-SCSI-IDE-/190708796966?pt=Klassische_Computer&hash=item2c67214e26

Starting bid from 2000 Euros (AUD$2365)....

I know they are getting harder to get now but is this serious?

You can buy a brand new complete SAM460 or 2xSAM440 AmigaOne systems with AmigaOS4.1 running at a decent speed and a bunch of extra software for the starting money of just this ppc board...amazing.

Or maybe you are in the market for a Commodore 1571 disk drive, a bargain for USD$699....(AUD$670)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW-COMMODORE-1571-vintage-computer-disk-drive-C64-C128-/260973914340?pt=US_Vintage_Computers_Mainframes&hash=item3cc341e8e4

Final auction I found for today (from the same seller) is a Commodore 128D for the highly realistic asking price of USD$3200 (AUD$3064):

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW-COMMODORE-128D-vintage-computer-and-keyboard-RARE-/260973919535?pt=US_Vintage_Computers_Mainframes&hash=item3cc341fd2f

Some of the other auctions from this seller have similar scary prices....

As an interesting comparison here is another Commodore 128D auction which includes a lot more and is a little bit cheaper currently at USD$103.50 at time of writing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Commodore-128D-lot-w-1764-REU-1571-1351-1670-Partner-128-cables-WOW-/140808683119?_trksid=p4340.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D555001%26algo%3DPW.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D7%26meid%3D971681623446644834%26pid%3D100009%26prg%3D1004%26rk%3D1%26 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Commodore-128D-lot-w-1764-REU-1571-1351-1670-Partner-128-cables-WOW-/140808683119?_trksid=p4340.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D555001%26algo%3DPW.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D7%26meid%3D971681623446644834%26pid%3D100009%26prg%3D1004%26rk%3D1%26)

Hmmm, I wonder which one I would go for....

Final one - not a computer I know, but a sapphire, yours for only USD$19 Million Dollars. And they even throw in free shipping. Bargain. :-)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/101Cts-Huge-Rare-Quality-Yellow-Golden-Natural-Sapphire-/120793670462?pt=Loose_Gemstones_1&hash=item1c1fdd233e

I say it again - WOW.

High crazy price.

Nothing retro is worth €2000.

Not even €850 which I heard a guy got for an acc. card.

This is nothing more than a money machine. No offence but ofc. people can't see that.

I feel bad for some of these sellers -- in particular, those who really don't know anything about what they're selling.  They get some friend or family member who tells them that stuff from the 80s is worth thousands of dollars/pounds/euros and they believe them.

Where I lose my patience is when they cannot be bothered to do the real research themselves.  I recently sold a Cisco PIX 501 with unlimited users for which we paid $850 about six years ago.  They're all still good and usable units but quick research showed they couldn't sell for much over $150.  Mine wound up selling for $50.

Well, they look a little beat up, and there are no detailed shots of the battery areas... for me it's too much of a gamble. $500 sure wouldn't be bad though if there's no battery damage. Unfortunately I've burned myself a few times and won't bid without decent pictures.

Come on! It's A1200, comes with composite out, how hard is to test it???

This is not first time I've seen postings like that, the only one that can really say that can not be tested is A4000.

The translation for that is :

"This is broken and definitely not working, but I still want to sell it for a high price so I'll say it worked when I put it away but now has not been tested.

Some sellers are just dirtballs.

Wow, that is the worst A500 ive seen in a long time color wise.

The description should say:
"I have had the Amiga since it was new, it has been used daily and has been sitting in my window at the sunny side of my house since it was new and i am a heavy chain smoker and I have my ashtray next to the Amiga so it's a bit discolored but it runs like a champ: PS it might smell some"

$600 for a floppy disk drive, that would be a good joke if someone was foolish enough to pay that much.

This Amiga 2000 http://www.tradera.com/amiga-2000-fungerande-och-genomgangen-gratis-frakt--auktion_340855_169126694A2000 is the first I've seen in a year or two in the Swedish eBay and it costs ~285$ is it a decent price, feels a bit high for that Amiga.
Stock on the inside and a button missing from the keyboard. I've been tempted to buy it.

$285 is way to much money for an A2000 in Sweden. The seller is a dreamer.

Remember that Amiga was actually fairly popular here, it is not a rare computer. I got the impression mot people do not want the A2000, it is a heavy and large computer. I am sure you can find one for 50 euro if you ask around (or for free).

For $285 you can get an A4000D.

Thanks for your reply, it's just that I rarely see them on the Swedish eBay, I really just want because I want all Amiga models, a 4KD is the one I want the most but last 040 one I saw in Sweden went for a crazy 850$ and that's to steep for me, but I'll keep looking my 1200 works fine meanwhile :)

That's about as insane as paying $2,800 for a C=128, but at least you have the excuse of a bidding war. Asking $425 for tiny piece of silicon that lets you connect outdated hardware at least deserves a OMFG.

Crazy Listings?

Here is a Dell Monitor ST2321L (bought from Dell refurb'd is $139, since they don't sell this model from their NEW stock anymore; infact the most expensive monitor on Dell's website is a 27" touchscreen at $999).  These two sell for a mere $2,999.00!

Uh listen, I am not making this up. I have two A500 power supply one works in USA/Canada and the other works in Europe (110v and 220V). I am willing to sell them both for you for just 40 bucks for both of them. Meaning, each one of them will be solved for 20 bucks. Interested? I want to get rid of them myself.

I also have three external Amiga disk drive, I would be more than happy to get rid of them also. Since I have an A1200 and will be using WHDLoad most of the time I would not be needing additional disk drives. Each disk drive I will sell it for 20 bucks as well.

Most likely it is temporarily out of stock, some sellers will increase the price to deter further sales when they are awaiting more stock from their supplier,
just means they don't have to end the current listing.

I asked, and her logic is that based on the purchase price years ago, plus an allowance for that time, and given the item is vintage, she came up with the figure. She says it is backed up by other prices she has seen.

I don't quite agree with her method, but accept that it is her choice and item to do with what she wishes.

For the price, I'm suprised at the lack of a few amenities like a CSPPC, Picasso IV, Deneb or a few others. Not even free shipping and the monitor is being sold seperately. This is the highest price I've every seen asked for a stock A4000 regardless of the condition.

That's sold by Robert Waters (from over in Mississippi, not actually Memphis, TN);  he sells clean, working Amiga (usually Toaster related) hardware.  He also knows market value, and I'll bet this is a bit of a joke for him.

I would guess it's expanded to 1mb, probably assumed that it was called amiga 500 because it had half a meg of ram.
 
It will be interesting to see whether the a4000 hits the reserve price, if only so we know what it is.

I recently sold one for nearly double that, fortunately they collected it as I wasn't looking forward to shipping it. I kept dreaming about putting a 2091 and a 2630 in it to bring it up to a2500/30 spec, but just couldn't bring myself to pay the silly prices (especially after getting ripped off on amibay for a 2091 that never turned up).

I recently sold one for nearly double that, fortunately they collected it as I wasn't looking forward to shipping it. I kept dreaming about putting a 2091 and a 2630 in it to bring it up to a2500/30 spec, but just couldn't bring myself to pay the silly prices (especially after getting ripped off on amibay for a 2091 that never turned up).

That's the disk controller I'm looking for, but the prices are on the high side (especially when I compare the lower price and much higher performance I have with U320 drives on one NG system).
I missed a chance to get an '040 accelerator a few days ago .

Not a bad price (about twice what everyone is asking for the 2091).

And I have a 33MHz 68040 I could have used to upgrade that board to at least 30MHz.

Not crazy - but if you are looking an A1000 here is a chance for what may end up as a fair price (not my auction)

I sold one of these boards a few weeks ago for $269.95 (eBay item  number 160954808679).  It went too fast, which leads me to believe that  the price was too low.  So, this time I have listed this second A2320  for what it normally sells for and I will not lower the price.

I'm confused, his last listing was a 7 day auction, that only got one bid?

How can he think it "went too fast"?

The only bid it got was 4 seconds before the auction ended, so clearly it isn't worth any more than that!

I think the seller of the Amber card might be George Campbell AKA Doommaster.
The item is in Oregon the same area that Doomy is known to live.
Avoid him at all costs.

Google him if you need more info.

But unfortunately he's right.  Previous one sold for a pretty amount. Supply and demand folks.
The point is attention drives the price. Ignore him and if it doesn't sell. It'll come down. Give interest and attention and it'll stay at that price.

Yep, that sounds like doomy and is, although he lives in beaverton. When I decided to go back into my old hobby last year I didnt know about his reputation. Wanted an A2000 and had a boxed a500 complete with a520, psu, manual etc. He wanted 100 for the 2000 and took the 500.... a couple of days later the psu of the 2000 started smoking...:argue:

I asked him for a new one but he said to drop it off and he would fix it....

Good I didnt and replaced the psu myself....

Because "too fast" is a matter of opinion. His/her experience/opinion may be that items that take 3 months to sell are sold at a price that "they are worth" - because by then the market has had the opportunity to value the items at it's maximum (read: sold at the highest possible price for the seller), even if, in most other peoples opinion, they are asking "too much".

+1, that was my understanding of what he meant by too fast. First listing.  There was a guy o'er in Oz selling a vanilla A2000 for $499 listed for over 18 months ago, he's stopped listing it now, so I'm guessing it sold.  Time isn't important for these people, it's the price you can get for product.  Personally I'd care more about the home the unit was going to and the fact that it would be looked after.  I'd get more joy giving away one of my A500's to someone who would give it a new lease on life rather than make $ on it.  But then again I don't need the money or the income supplementation. Other people do this as a business.
The market rules the price. Aside: The Scotts and Yankees started this whole business off in the 1700s with tobacco.

@psxphill: The A4000 went for $790.  We might think that's ludicrous.  I kinda do, but for a fastidious collector it might have had all the right elements.  Obviously at least 2 of them thought it did.  Either that or there was a phantom in there.

Also I don't think you compare a Indvision with an a2320. One is vintage the other new,ish.

Having said that you can get this one for $160 au: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Amiga-2000-2320-Amber-card-P-/200905030438?pt=AU_Computers_Vintage&hash=item2ec6df7b26

DO NOT DO IT!!!!!! The account is hacked big time. ALL items under the user are $2000 and the weird thing is, it will redirect you to a site outside of EBAY that looks like ebay. I never saw that from Ebay's site yet.
It will prompt you to enter the username and password and then they have your credentials.
I had to change my password really fast before they will. I hope I was fast...

Yeah, this is really clever. They managed to get enough html code into the eBay listing to redirect you to another site that is made to look like ebay. And there is a tendency to not display the full web address in a lot of newer browers. Evil.

Very slow response time. And this is real serious fraud that threatens the integrity of their whole system. I think that an item has to be reported a number of times before it is pulled. In the hour or so it has been up, there could have been many more eBay accounts compromised. At this point, the guys doing this could be liable for some serious jail time and the FBI could be called in to investigate. There have been numerous seller accounts hacked over the last year, who knows how many have fallen for the bait--the A4000T is just one of many listings that have been copied. Interstate and international fraud.

Still live along with a lot of other $2000 listings. It will take eBay a few hours to deal with this. The strategy looks like get what you can in the several hour response time. If nobody bites the $2000 bait, they still might phish some more accounts for the next round. You would think eBay had profiled this by now. A response time of 15 minutes or less would discourage this. 1 minute or less would make it a losing game.

18 pages of fraudulent listings. The fraudster's database of high dollar eBay sales is growing. The Ultimate A4000T is just the one we notice. It's obvious they are using some sort of database script/app to upload all these listings once they hack an account. All eBay would have to do is to keep tabs of these item descriptions and set it up to automatically shut them down within seconds of being listed. Don't they have good coders?

You know, sadly, it is not an ultimate A4000T:  I have one still stored in its original box from SoftwareHut, with never used mouse, keyboard, floppy disks, switch keys and stand, that only came out of the box last year to be made up with a CSPPC 233/50, Mediator (Radeon 9200, sil3114ide, ESS-1 Solo sound, 8029RTL), Deneb, ZorRam 256MB, Indivision AGA MK2, DVD-RW, Mech's SCSI card reader and dual boots off a Maxtor Atlas U320 36 GB HDD into OS 3.9 and 4.1.

Have you seen the film, "Field of Dreams?"  The quote is, "If you build it he will come."  With the Amiga you can't use the word "cheap."  Secondly the quote is, "If you pay for it, it will come."  Now you may ask why this one stays stored in its original box and isn't used?  It is a near-twin backup Amiga A4000T for the one I use all the time. This one has a 146 GB 15k U320 main drive, an SATA DVD-RW and a SCSI 3 DVD-Rom with a 128 GB SSD.

Just out of curiosity, what would you do with them once you collected them considering that you would have a plethora of more capable machines to run any software titles on that they could use?

Well, this is a bit of a surprise. This eBay seller usually wants the top end of the market for his Amiga gear. This one seem quite reasonable considering you get just about everything you'll need to upgrade a stock A2000 along with the disk and manual for the accelerator.

I have one and is not a DRACO, maybe is based on it, but definitely not a DRACO. It doesn't run any Amiga software.

Post by: zipper on April 19, 2013, 04:22:18 PM
"The Casablanca was designed as a complete video editing solution and was the successor to the Draco with a cheaper price tag of around $3,500. Many models of Casablanca exist, but only the first model or the first few models were clones of the Amiga. Newer models are largely based around PC hardware. It made use of the Amiga's ROMs and operating system with various patches to drive the hardware. The Casablanca probably isn't too practical to run traditional Amiga software because it is a highly integrated device and in fact, may even be largely incompatible with most Amiga software. The Casablanca makes uses of proprietary hardware such as flash cards for updates (to prevent piracy), custom hard drive mechanisms and DVD burners. "

Good performance for only 22MHz, though.  My 25MHz 68030 only does about 7.5x speed of an A600, and 0.90 the speed of an A3000.  This guy's actually beating the A3000 speed by 2%!  ;)

Wonder how he managed that?

I think mine was 40mhz and I had the ram fully populated. I got something like $180 for it. I meant reasonable for this seller, not reasonable in the absolute. Having the original manual and disk adds something to the value but not as much as 3 gvp simms.

Do you remember what these sold for originally?. Most of these GVP boards are good, but the 40MHz and 50MHz 030s have much better RAM options.
I have an '040 version in one of my A2000s. It makes for a very stable machine. I was lucky on the price - about $100.00 for the whole machine....

Yes, that is Roberts Waters' board. I've bought stuff from him over the past couple of years and he is very thorough (OCD?) with his sales. Items are always "good as new" and as complete as he can get them. I guess you pay more for his reputation. You know, "straight shooter, white hat of the old west."

It is a pretty complete package that's well thought out for someone who just has a stock A2000. The CD rom and 4gb scsi drive and cables would cost a bit on eBay. There are lot of sellers that try to get outrageous prices for old drives. Mostly they don't or wait a long time for a buyer. 250mb SCSI zip drives are a good example. Because there is a lot of old Akai and other music gear that can use them, there are usually a lot listed for around $70-$100. The same drives keep getting relisted. I've bought 2 over the last few years and I paid around $30 shipped for each of them. Now that eBay has a sold listings tab, I see that most that have actually been sold have gone for $20-$40 and the overpriced ones do sell but not all that often. It can take a bit of patience to find a good SCSI drive for a reasonable price on eBay. I used to get them from old Macs from our recycling center but now they won't let us local people take the abandoned hardware people leave there and instead send them to an electronics recycler that pretty much does the same thing with pulled parts. They aren't on eBay but they try to sell stuff like an old AT power supplies for outrageous prices on their website. I did get a good supply of SCSI drives and 72 pin simms while it lasted.

I have been selling a few things in eBay lately, and there is  strange phenomena I just don't understand... why do people get into bidding wars (or bid at all) days before the auction ends?

I can see where there was a definite strategy bidding early on those auction sites like ubid where they would have large quantities of the same item and getting in early means you may get the item at a lower price than others.

I also understand that some people might like to get the first bid in on multiple auctions in the hopes that nobody else will bid on at least one.

I guess I'm glad it happens when I'm the seller, just not the buyer.

I always snipe at the end :)
Title: Re: are we still sharing crazy ebay postings?
Post by: A6000 on May 18, 2013, 03:15:09 PM
I always snipe, although when I am not paying enough attention, I frequently miss the end of the auction:).
I have only bid early on 2 auctions, the first I did not read the description fully and ended up paying far more than the item was worth, the second occasion was because I really wanted the item and the early bid may have given my bid precedence if it came to a tie at the end, as it happens I had to snipe at the end and left it too late and lost the item.

I think getting into early bidding wars it can sometimes be to your advantage, I have used the eBay phone app to match some rival bids real time when the price was still relatively low, my theory is some bidders get annoyed by this and just bugger off. :-)

I had the Cybervision PPC on my watch list. The seller probably got a fat offer for the combo through eBay messaging. It was nice, including the documentation.

The ultimate A4000T is just one of many things the fraudsters list when a seller account gets hacked, mostly vintage fender and gibson guitars. I saw something on TV about a place in Romania where the hackers targetting eBay operate. Could be the source of this.

The Ultimate A4000T listing was just copied from the original listing which was legitimate. The technique is to watch eBay for stuff that sells for a lot, copy the listing text and photos, and pop them into new listings in the hacked account. I think they are using some sort of database and scripting to automate the process so the listings pop up fast once they get into an account. It's over in hours. Since the first occurrence of the A4000T fraud, it has gotten a little more sophisticated with each repeat. At first it was just a gmail address to contact out of ebay. Now it is redirection to other sites that look like a real eBay or Paypal page. Classic phishing. At one point, there was a listing that said nasty things about Amiga.org members. And the database of listings is growing. It was several pages of guitars, barbie dolls, pro audio and industrial equipment along with the "Ultimate A4000T" the last time it happened. The hackers could be operating anywhere. They obviously have some real chops and know how to code.

If you notice the "10 sold" was at 15.99 each. Sometimes people will jack the price up if they are expecting to get more stock, I guess to hold the listing open. I tried to buy a couple of AC adapters for laptops once, they told me they were out of stock, refunded my money and changed the price from $14.99 to $149.00. A couple of weeks later they got more stock and dropped the price back. Not sure where you get more Commodore stock :-).
They may have found out they are collectable and are hoping for the best on the last item.
Title: Re: are we still sharing crazy ebay postings?
Post by: Akiko on May 25, 2013, 02:14:53 PM
Yea a lot of sellers bump up the price temporarily when they are expecting more stock, the reason is to keep the sales history on display, and helps maintain the items ranking within the search results.

buy it and see? then if its folded, complain, obviously!

From the HDD you can tell that it is attached to a A2090 MFM/SCSI controller, and the far right card is  a KitchenSync card without the cables/connectors. I'm guessing there is an accelerator card in there too.  Granted all that and the control and connector box for the KitchenSync come with it, it might fetch $600+.

The accelerator is a GVP 030 with external SCSI connector. I had one once, same brown bracket. This A2000 is way overpriced.

There was an A2000 Toaster that had a GVP 040 accelerator with a Spectrum 110 graphics card attached that went for something between 350 and 400 recently. Same deal, just the photos and the seller didn't know a thing about it. I had it on my watch list just for the 040 card with Spectrum 110. The GVP 040 A2000 card is fairly rare but does come up for sale a few times a year. I've only seen 2 Spectrum 110s in the last few years on eBay.

Ha!  I was just coming here to comment on the very same guy.  I was watching that M-Tec A500 accelerator for a while back when it was only $300, sold as "untested, visually looks fine".  Now they're selling it as "tested", added a bunch of screenshots, and jacked the price to $500!  Crazy!  Makes me sick that these scammers ever manage to get hold of Amiga hardware, just keeping it from the hands of people that would actually use it...  *sigh*

@ amiman99
 
Thats quiet cool ! where do you get these from ? do they have graphics, sound and network integrated as well ?
 
as stated above, the only benefit i see from a bridgeboard is that you can use isa networkccards in the big box amigas. ISA sound and graphics card may be not much of a benefit for sharing.
 
how much power does that card drain ? I am a little worried about the poor 25 year old a2000 psu dying faster than necessary....
 
But there is a new network card coming from jens, which might have usb upgrade capacity as well (i guess that explains the recent surge in ariadnes on the market, people trying to get primerates on their hw as long as there is a shortage)

This is all the same sort of thing and its a word called GREED.
Use ther word AMIGA and the sellers actualy think in there own GREEDY head that people will fall over them selvs to go out and buy it.

I hate those type of people who think that others are far to stupid as to PAY.
GREED some people over rate what they have, its a sick world we live in.
Ask a reasonable price yes of course but some of the prices are just plain GREEDY.

It makes me real sick to see it.
3 years ago I asked a seller "Hi there is the asking price correct? £350.00 for a Amiga 1200 motherboard in fair condition?" He replied by saying he will report me to eBay, but of course nothing happened. In the end the 1200 motherboard did not sell.
Why would he report me to eBay for asking a question in the first place is beyond me.
Buit I suspect some sellers are under the impression they can ask what they want for what ever they want and with no one asking "Is this right"
Stupidity and greed at its best

I don't invest emotionally in the issue.  On the one hand I know that most of these peoples' greed will not be rewarded as reasonable people will ignore the auctions, though there will be a couple of suckers, mostly people of the same caliber as the seller.

On the other hand, I am disappointed to know that some of these people throw tantrums when no one gives into their absurd asking prices and simply destroy the equipment.

Over all, though, people who are not simply delusional and legitimately scam like this do not gain monetary richness and remain morally bankrupt.

I don't invest emotionally in the issue.  On the one hand I know that most of these peoples' greed will not be rewarded as reasonable people will ignore the auctions, though there will be a couple of suckers, mostly people of the same caliber as the seller.

On the other hand, I am disappointed to know that some of these people throw tantrums when no one gives into their absurd asking prices and simply destroy the equipment.

Over all, though, people who are not simply delusional and legitimately scam like this do not gain monetary richness and remain morally bankrupt.

Finally some decent prices on 2 modules I needed for 4000T and I totally missed the auctions :cry:

Anyone feel pity and want to sell me theirs? :P


You also missed the Quickpak 060 accelerator listed as an A4000T daughterboard for $175 BIN. It lasted about 10 minutes. I bought one of the Commodore A4000 23 pin to 15 pin VGA adapters from him for $20 shipped. I thought about the Quickpak 060 board but I don't need it now and hesitated too long. I hope it went to a good home and not to a hoarder. Wow, I resisted the tempatation to get a spare 060 accelerator for my A4000T that probably would sit in a box for the next 20 years. I guess I'm not really a hoarder. All my Amigas get turned on and used, even if it isn't all that often.

And back to the main theme of this thread, here's another overpriced A4000:

I haven't had a tv in years;  I do have a Westinghouse 42" monitor that I watch video on from my Roku (mostly Netflix and Amazon).  The monthly cost of cable and Satellite were 10 fold higher.

Jes**.  I've got two of 'em that I'd give away for free (one working 1084S-D1, one not working 1084S-D2), both otherwise in good physical condition, yadda yadda), if someone was willing to drive to my area to get 'em.  Would be nice to at least get beer money for 'em, but it's not worth the hassle to list or try to ship (which is how the second one died).

My first questions is, how many of those bids are shills?  My second question is, what would that actually accomplish?

Anyway, yeah, the link was pretty believable up two the third finding.  I could imagine someone stashing money in strange places.  I have.  Hell, I used to hide condoms in my cable tuner box when I lived at home.  Even the key would be an acceptable find.

It appears he is just selling his password access to a site that has illegal copies of the books and for the full 99 USD will burn a BD disk; he does not say he is hosting the site.  So it is just the same as providing password and access to a site with any old violated copyright material such as movies, music, games, porn, etc.

I'm sure the legalities are the same and we should not shame him, but encourage him to locate a good lawyer and bail bondsman to keep him from becoming just another prison b-tch.

No hard drives are made in a sealed vacuum.  They just happen to be sealed to keep dust, hair etc out.  There is a reason you don't want to open it...

Though 500MB definitely did not get released during the cold war era.  Even my Mega STe that I got in '91-'92 had a 50mb.  Either way, open or not open, working or not working... Why the hell would anyone pay more than 20 bucks for that?

I guess if the cold war era was circa 1986, then that would be true.  That is when that drive was manufactured.  However, it appears that is a 5MB drive, not a 500MB drive.  It looks like the one used by CBM for their first hard drives for the C64.

No real commentary as the starting price isn't bad, just I noticed it's all from an estate sale, and I wonder if someday some of the other more common users on this site will just disappear, and the only knowledge we'll have of their passing is when all their gear winds up on a site like ebay?

Yes but there was an Amiga 1000 (not particularly white) that came with the el cheapo white box from Commodore on ebay UK and I'm not even sure it was 512kb and it went for £300+ US models with the much nicer packaging we selling for not much less than that 10 years ago on ebay USA

As all Amigas get difficult to find the prices will go up. There is an A4000/030 on ebay which doesn't have a HD disk drive inside it for £400 (and it has no A4000 keyboard and is pretty yellowed on plastics).

Untested A500's usually go for about $50 each.
This has to be because of the chicken lips model right? Or because they are NTSC? 50$ for an untested A500 is more than for a working one here...

I wonder if the 2 500's would have sold for more if they would have mentioned the "chicken lip" factor :)

Not sure, I see untested non chicken lip models go for $50 and over here.

I have no attachment to Atari whatsoever, never owned one growing up, never really used one. I got it in a lot with Amiga stuff and was told it was worth a lot of money (doesn't every seller always say that though? ;) ).

Hooked it all up, got TOS to come up (is that even what it is called?). Didn't really know where to go from there and not interested in finding out either .. like I said, no attachment to Atari and not much if any interest at all.
Title: Re: are we still sharing crazy ebay postings?
Post by: slaapliedje on February 22, 2014, 08:20:48 PM
TOS is kind of like the backend of the Atari ST's operating system, where GEM is the Graphical portion, in the same way that you would have a TTY on *nix with Bash or whatever, and X11 as the graphical interface layer.

Guess that's the best way to explain it.  Or AmigaDOS vs Workbench.  Or DOS vs Windows Shell.

Anyhow, if you wouldn't mind parting with it for cheap, I'll take it off your hands!  I have tons of ST disks just sitting in a room next to mine, and at the moment don't have any ST monitors.

I agree!  Wish I could afford a new X1000... but I just priced it and it's over $3000 US!

This is what frustrates me about the PowerPC / Proprietary path that things went.  It just costs too much to get current.

Someday maybe... perhaps a used AmigaONE or something for me... but I'd prefer the X1000 or newer :)
Title: Re: are we still sharing crazy ebay postings?
Post by: slaapliedje on March 06, 2014, 06:01:34 PM
I think a lot of the costs of PPC can be blamed on Apple/IBM.  If the fruit hadn't dropped PPC, then they'd most likely be a bit more 'commodity' than they are now.  IBM and some embedded systems are really the only ones using the architecture anymore.

As much as I think it'd be cool to own a PPC, my thoughts are this;

With a 68060 (which I now have, though it's at 50mhz and I'd really like to overclock it, but no one has overclocked a Cyberstorm MK I that I know of) you get the old classic feeling of the Amiga on real hardware.  There isn't a whole lot of PPC only software out there unless you run AmigaOS4.x  And Once you go with 4.x or MorphOS or AROS, then you're pretty much in emulation land for 68k software.  In which case I have a big beefy system with Arch Linux, Debian GNU/Linux and Windows 7 on it.  So I could emulate and / or use AROS.  This system costs less than that crazy ass posting of an accelerator.  

So while the geek in me thinks "Hell yeah, gimme, I still want a PPC, because I've never owned one!", the realist in me thinks "would it be useful for anything besides saying "I have a PPC bitches!"?

Nah, you're confusing me with someone else. And I was joking anyway. The rumours of my death were greatly exaggerated.
I saw it when it was at $2k already. Didn't place a bid. I reckon Id pay $900 though. But that would be my limit.

AH! You said you would pay 900? Funny that is how much I paid for an A4000D all together and honestly I would not pay $900 for it. Just because it is a price of an entire computer..no. I would stick with 040. But problem I am facing is AmiBlitz 3 is very much processor intensive and 040 is too slow for this application. So if I am going to do anymore Amiga classic hardware purchase it would be a 060.

Seriously people, I know MorphOS isnt "Amiga" but give it a try and buy yourself a $150 G5 tower. Its way more power than any Amiga accelerator ever was and you can do a lot more with it!

Hey DutchinUSA I will take your offer :D I want a 060 @ 66 Mhz card really for my A4000D. You said you will offer something for a lot less money, right? If I sell my 040 card for 400 dollars would you be willing to sell me a 060 card for 600 dollars plus shipping and handling? It just my 040 @ 25 Mhz does the job for what it's intended..but if I want to use more intensive applications such as using AmiBlitz3.5 on it...it is unbearably slow...every single key press in the keyboard take 4 seconds for the word to appear...it is slow. If I want to watch hv movies it is unwatchable..the frame rate is 5 fps...and certain other apps is just too slow for it.

Sorry, ain't got no 060 @ 66 Mhz ! I do however think a $600 - $700 price for that seems fair :)

Don't think you will get $400 for your 040 @ 25 Mhz though :(

Post by: slaapliedje on March 13, 2014, 05:56:33 PM
Ha ha, the 040@25Mhz aren't really going for 400 bucks are they?  I left mine up on the shelf, after I finally scored my Cyberstorm MKI, though I think I overpaid for it, I wanted one really badly.  It now has 128mb of ram on it (was bought with 64mb) and it is really fast.  

I kind of want a PPC, but then I don't.. 'cause then I'd be tempted to go all OS4 on my machine, and I don't think I really need it, since I mostly aim for getting a 68k machine that can be used for somewhat modern stuff.

Once I get much better, I think I'm going to try porting python 3 over to the Amiga.  :D

Actually Curtis after what I have seeing, 300 dollars for an A3000D computer is pretty cheap. Have you not seeing the pricing in the market lately? My A4000D is not brand new, it have seeing enough of the days passing and it cost me 900 bucks. So yeah!

Well, guess someone else agreed with you.  It sold!

Still, I'd be wary of it.  Guess I'm just a suspicious sort.

I received this message on eBay (for an A1200):

What is the difference between this unit and the Amigo 1300? Also, this says it was made in France. Well I'm not an idiot, Amiga is Spanish. How do I know this wasn't made in a sweat shop in Mexico? If I buy this, I would like to upgrade the GPU to run Halo, since the stock one you have sucks. Would you consider knocking the price down some? Also, $40 is too much to ship. I would be willing to pay you half of that price. Insurance not necessary. Let me know, very interested.

Heh. Seems a lot of amiga people already gave him a hard time about this ridiculous price...this text is in the listing too:

"Now to my Amiga.  In a year, I've gotten around 100 emails from the  passive aggressive to the straight out rude.  If cursing was allowed, I  could just image the emails I would have gotten.  What I've found is  that it actually isn't the pricing per se that is making the "Amiga  community" so ticked off.  It's that I priced an Amiga 1000 higher than  the buyer would like and specifically an Amiga buyer.  Every item I've  bought, the price ranged from really low to the extremely high as in 100  times higher than retail.  Never in my mind did I think of sending the  seller an email and giving them a piece of my mind.  I just bought the  one I could afford and be done with it.  But, with an Amiga buyer, it's  very different.  They have a very unique sense of right and wrong.   I  get emails on how markets work, pricing lessons and even life lessons.   I would banter with them a bit and ask them if they actually have  emailed other sellers with ridiculous prices on a recent purchase.  You  can guess the answer to that.  A lot of other tidbits I found  as well.   I would like to send a big virtual hug to the Amiga community and hope I  was able to help you release some hot air.  "

What gets me is the words they use like "Hard to find", "Very rare","Not many made","Once its gone its gone","Very valuable","One of a kind" and so on.
I saw a listing on an Amiga 1200 "Excellent condition white case upper and lower, Keys all in first factory condition, in supreme shape, hardly used" Actually the tope case was yellow to a degree bottom case was white, keys was well used as in the photo and dirty.

So how on Earth can the seller use such description to sell when any himan being with half decent eye sight could spot it a mile away that it was No WHERE near the condition it was stated by the seller.??????

I asked him that question and he threatend to report my to eBay. The reply was "please feel free and go ahead."
Well eBay did nothing to me. So for me he could stick his threat right up his CPU cooler.

I hate sellers with that attitude, my question was no way sarcastic or was deemed to be of any insult or any other so why the threat??

I just dont understand some sellers I really don't.

Somebody asked recently why doesn't anyone post the good deals they find on ebay?  Well today I picked up this from a guy only about 30 miles from my house.  Loaded A2000, monitor, and a box full of stuff that I haven't even had time to dig though yet, but I know at least it contains a SuperGen and some other hardware bits.  All for $131 and a nice drive out to the country.  :)  Now I'm sure all the European users are laughing about that, but Amiga's are so rare in my area, this was a great deal that I got on a second-chance offer when the original winning bidder bailed on the shipping charges.  Maybe I'll post another pic or two after I inspect the battery and dig through the box.

Did I need it?  No.  But I sure wanted to rescue it!  ;)

Somebody asked recently why doesn't anyone post the good deals they find on ebay?  Well today I picked up this from a guy only about 30 miles from my house.  Loaded A2000, monitor, and a box full of stuff that I haven't even had time to dig though yet, but I know at least it contains a SuperGen and some other hardware bits.  All for $131 and a nice drive out to the country.  :)  Now I'm sure all the European users are laughing about that, but Amiga's are so rare in my area, this was a great deal that I got on a second-chance offer when the original winning bidder bailed on the shipping charges.  Maybe I'll post another pic or two after I inspect the battery and dig through the box.

Did I need it?  No.  But I sure wanted to rescue it!  ;)

Nice find! We are not laughing about the drive, even if more common where I live prices are way higher, damn last stock A2000 went for 400USD near me... Common price for em here is 350-450USD :/

So great find again!

Also I made a 310 mile (500KM) drive not long ago for some old PC stuff that was not even near the value of the gas/petrol xD Mostly because it's fun and now and then you get some new friends doing that :)

Yo Mike...  get a chance to go thru the box of stuff yet? Gee, those two floppy drives were worth the $$ alone! I recently got a great deal on a 68060@50MHz CPU for $52.00 on ebay (yea, it's the real thing). So, I'm going to do the mod to my Blizzard 2040 board. Just gotta source the 1N4001 surface mount diodes. Then I'm on my way to killer 3.1ROM A2000 machine like yours with a Mechy SCSI reader! :)

I'm curious about the monitor. I've always wanted one of those models again in good working condition. Must be harder and harder to keep these old CRTs working at this point in time though. Weren't these notorious for the cold solder joints or something like that? I suppose every CRT will require re-soldering at various stages due to the high voltages.

Every TV repairman is eager to repair old TVs and monitors: no SMDs, easy to replace capacitors, no imbedded processors.  All they can do with modern equipment is swap out boards IF they can find a replacement.  But a CRT that has lasted 30 years will likely last another.

Ironically, and I have not done this in years, I searched the local Craigslist for Amiga and this monitor came up (no not mine). Being in this location, where everyone is broke, and being a completely devoid market for Amiga... me thinks this is a tad over priced!

Yes sir, correct on all the above.  Also the power button switch tends to go (you can sometimes still source replacements from sources like Jameco), and the hinges on the monitor flap, especially on the 1084S, people kind of abuse many of those.  :/

I've gotten so many of the 1084's and 1084S's in the past year or so, just from the few lots of Amiga goodies I've managed to snag around here.  Ironically I don't even use them since I put Indivisions in my systems, they kind of become paperweights and things to trip over in my office, haha.  Gave a couple to another member on the forum here, and sold a couple others on ebay when nobody else seemed interested, etc.

Let me test this one out and think about it for a bit, and if you're still interested in this one I'll send you a PM!

The box is loaded with video editing gear, switchers and mixers and the like, plus a bunch of software. Honestly never did much of that on my Miggy's and I don't even know how to use it, it would be kind of funny to put together a retro video with it for my roller derby team! ;)

Good luck on the '060 mod, that's the only thing mine is still missing!

Ha, you mind parting with a 1084S?  I have an Indivision for my Amiga 4000D, but I think it's possible to wire up a cable/adapter for an Atari ST, and that's what I'd be using it for (I have several, but no monitor as of right now that works).  Finding an Atari 1435 is extremely difficult.  I also have another monitor that has a busted tube, I was thinking of trying to swap my (theoretically) working tube in my 1435 with that other monitor (which currently eludes me to the model number at the moment) but that probably won't work.  The Atari monitor has a cracked PC Board inside where the cable connects, I may just try to fix that... fun times!

I sure hope so, personally I'm afraid that the Vector X-Y tube will die in my 31 years old Vectrex and I must start thinking of a solution if that happens!

I assume you don't mean me when you say "darn kids" and "don't know anything about repairing older technology"since neither is the case for me.

I have mostly no problem in repairing older technology at all so I don't really need a "old fella" for that and when the Tube dies the tube dies nothing they or anyone can do about it but source a replacement tube.

The circuitry is not the problem, that I can repair and rebuild myself if needed, the problem is the Tubes, less and less fitting vector tubes (or monochrome tubes) to get  hold off these days and some day I have to build and code a raster scan converter to use a modern display.

I guess that will be a fun project to add to my to do list in the future :)

I took my M1438S to a repair guy, and he said that the monitor was hosed, it powered on, but I think the tube was bad.  Sad days, looked like it would have worked great for what I needed it for.

A few years ago I sold another new copy on eBay for only 10 EUR...  But I had listed it on eBay Belgium, which almost nobody visits apart from Belgians.

I read the description about the history and included software before I posted yes, I still stand by my previous post. So why you take for granted that I did not read it I do not know.

Also if you are asking that price it would not be to much work to clean it from dust would it?

I get the impression that some people on here must be very new to ebay....

If an item has a ridiculously high price, like the above listing, it probably means the seller has no stock at the moment, so has increased the price, rather than remove the listing and have to pay a relisting fee when they get more stock...

Back in the 1990's I had a 17" Princeton monitor that had that same shape and a weight of 56 pounds; it felt like a monster.  I finally gave it away to Goodwill hoping a user with a strong back would benefit (and took a few hundred bucks off my taxes).  My 1764 monitor seems to weigh less in the 30 to 40 pound range and isn't that long.

Oh, the motherboard would cost more to repair than it is worth, but an intact case is hard to come by; the seller did, by the way, ruin any chance of selling the case due to his lack of working brain tissue.  I'm sure though that using one's brain as radiator keeps your head cool, especially if one is wearing a propeller beanie.

Sadly, the price would be OK if the case were not ruined.

What did he do?  I was just barely thinking a black Amiga 4000D would be awesome, since I just saw that CD32 that had a black keyboard.  But I can't tell if this guy's case has some sort of plastic wrapping on top of it (kind of looks that way) but you can see where a monitor sat for a long time and left a mark.

Oddly, if it's just the 040 card, I have one sitting in my closet, but it is hard to tell if there is battery damage.  Plus, I already have one, which after making it less loud, and soon I should be getting my IDE killer soon, it's right where I want it :D

What did he do?  I was just barely thinking a black Amiga 4000D would be awesome, since I just saw that CD32 that had a black keyboard.  But I can't tell if this guy's case has some sort of plastic wrapping on top of it (kind of looks that way) but you can see where a monitor sat for a long time and left a mark.

Oddly, if it's just the 040 card, I have one sitting in my closet, but it is hard to tell if there is battery damage.  Plus, I already have one, which after making it less loud, and soon I should be getting my IDE killer soon, it's right where I want it :D

There seems from the pics to have a whole IC chip missing to the left of the battery area.

One can hope, anyway!

You know, I always sort of wonder if one day some of these Amiga users (on this forum, for example) start to die off, and the only way we find out is that we see their systems pop up on some auction site.  Like I know my stuff would be pretty recognizable, for example.

I think this humor went over a few people's heads.  The joke was the description on ebay said "angus" not "Agnus".  One is beef.  The other is a chip.

Wow, I bought mine for 400 USD, and it has the HD floppy, no damage to the motherboard (except where the dude soldered a new barrel battery, he hit the corner of the memory slots.) it needed recapping, so it went to amigakit, and while there got shiny new simm slots as well.  I think that was another 100 or so with shipping.. So even 500 bucks...

According to his feedback he sold another for €5000.  I'm struggling to believe anyone would pay that much.  Previously I'd seen them typically being addvertised for £500-£700 which I still tend to is a lot for what you get.

According to his feedback he sold another for €5000.  I'm struggling to believe anyone would pay that much.  Previously I'd seen them typically being addvertised for £500-£700 which I still tend to is a lot for what you get.

In economics, inflation is a sustained increase in the general price level of goods and services in an economy over a period of time. When the price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services. Consequently, inflation reflects a reduction in the purchasing power per unit of money – a loss of real value in the medium of exchange and unit of account within the economy. A chief measure of price inflation is the inflation rate, the annualized percentage change in a general price index (normally the consumer price index) over time.

It depends on the first three rules of real estate: location, location, location.

In the 1990's America they handed out A4000T's with every McDonald's happy meal, while in Europe they handed out croissants.  So buyers in the states find one in every garbage bin in all the bars, in all the cities, in their world.  Your favorite girlfriend walks into mine.

yep, WinHex would do it, that's pretty much how you make two physical roms for an a1200 or a4000 from a single rom file. Just need to know which eproms are compatible and work out what address to split them at.

Pretty sure it had a Picasso IV card in it and one of the accompanying modules :) Part of the reason why it went so high, kinda sucks though if the Picasso don't work !

LOL @ Mike

Not I !

No, I got my 3000T last year but just recently started working on it, I love it plain as it is with the 030 @ 25mhz, I'm pretty happy with the built-in flicker fixer thing in the 3000 models, I did however install one of those zip to simm adapters for the fastram. Just got a fancy scsi card reader PCB-50 that I want to install and with all those extra zorro slots I might install a 2065 NIC and a pc bridgeboard .. we'll see .. I got some options being hoarder extraordinaire :laughing:

And mine is not missing part of the case like the one in that auction :D

There is however one or two small rust spots in the bottom of the case that I want to sand down and treat.

Three loaded A2000's went for under $600, or under $200 a pop.  Somebody got themselves a pretty sweet deal!  I would've bid in on this, except for one thing: how much space they would take up!  :lol:

A loaded A2000 usually fetches at least $300 each around here, or more (since one of these had an '040 board), plus three Toasters, RAM, etc.  The auction gave a pretty good breakdown of what was included, but they were "untested", no photos of batteries, and then there was the shipping cost to consider, haha.  ;)

I have a strong suspicion that whoever bought these is just going to take what they need and then part out the rest for $$$.  Heck, I probably would've done the same.  :p

Sadly, it did have a CyberStormPPC, CyberVisionPPC in it a few weeks ago.

The CVPPC is listed separately, and a very dead CSPPC is available if someone is interested.  When I bought the CSPPC a while back I was warned that the PPC side didn't start up all the time.  I never had a moment of trouble with it.  I ordered and installed OS4.1FE a few weeks ago and ran it for about a week solid.  The SCSI chip failed, then the PPC and finally the whole board died.  I moved the CVPPC, the 060 and the RAM to another board, they are tested and work great.

Check out the other items I have listed as well.  I have a Hydra Systems Amiganet NIC for sale and a Merlin RTG board and an RBM ONBoard 4000/Towerhawk rig too.  Sold my A3660 (A3640 with 060 conversion) boards, sold my other A4000s - this is the last machine to go.

Is there a how-to somewhere for creatining a 'A3660'?  I still have my A3640 sittiing in a closet and was always curious to know if it was possible to slap an 060 in it.

Ah yes, I remember the eab.abime.net thread.  I also remember running into it right after Cosmos had pulled his patch because some ass goblin decided to turn around and sell it.

I thought it'd be really cool back before I was able to finally land my Cyberstorm MK I, and I have 128mb of ram on that, so even if I did the 3660 mod, I'd lose that, and the speed would be the same, I think.

Shot up to $1,725+.

To be fair to the seller he had it start at $500.

I don't see any reason why it should go any higher than $700-1,000 max (as it looks super clean).

Holy crap, that is a bit surprising. That's going to be at least $2,250 in Canadian $. It's a good time to be selling stuff from Canada, enjoy the haul! I bought a very similar A4000D locally advertised for $60 a few years ago - I offered $80 because I thought he was selling it too cheap. Feeling pretty good about that purchase right now :)

I wouldn't say that's a true indicator of its value when it's only 2 bidders going back and forth starting at $550. Once they satisfy their needs we might see more "normal" prices again.

It is however a Rev D board which are a bit less common :)

Right!  Mike pointed out a RAM card for the A3000 at Amiga30 and that my Amiga 3000 is in serious need of work... but I just couldn't do it.  Even though it was $80 (or $100, whichever) I had to draw the line on the money I was spending.  I'm actually glad someone else got it, as it was a great find and a really good deal, but I'll find something else later on when it's more practical timing.

It's probably part of an in-circuit debugger.  Years ago when I had just finished my CS degree, I was offered a job at DPT working on hard disk controllers.  (I turned it down, cheap bastards)   The had a tool that looked like this.  Basically, you unplug the CPU, then plug this into the socket.  Then the wiring harness goes to another dedicated computer that's a machine language debugger.

I'd expect it to be expensive, but not that expensive.

A500 with Derringer accelerator, originally listed at $400, apparently it didn't sell because they relisted it at $475.  Doesn't that just fly in the face of logic?  :lol:

You'd be surprised at the number of items which get re-listed at higher prices.  Some people are real rubes.  Then there's the guy about six months ago who was flogging his Atari 1040ST -- started at $550, then $475, then $425, then $350, then $225 (IIRC,) then $150 when it finally sold on a best offer.

*sigh*  I don't know why, but I feel compelled to get an ST or Falcon.  I can't imagine I would actually use it for anything, though.

Hi All,

Of course in Australia you could buy an Amiga 500, stock standard, apparently brand new in box for $2500. Untested.

Bargain.

Here's another example of a person with no business using a computer.  Pages and pages of Amiga items, each one titled simply "Amiga" or "Amiga 2000", etc., regardless of if it's an actual system, a collection of games, software or books.  SMDH.  How hard is it to type a description of the item you're selling, and why do people like this always get hold of so much Amiga stuff?  :(

Also, looks like that Amiga 2200 board went for $7,100 the other day.  Whoa!  :D

Yeah, noticed that guy.

Kind of figured out if it just says Amiga, it's hardware.  If it says Amiga 500 2000 3000 it's probably software.

Still seller so lazy he can't say Amiga 500 or Amiga software.  Pretty lame.

These sorts of prices on hardware is why I left the classic systems. I even sold my A3000 to a member here loaded with an CSPPC, mediator and all the goodies people dream of thinking I was getting it to someone that was getting the machine they dreamed of for years. Soon after I saw it parted out and sold on eBay for a huge profit. It was the last time I ever sold my stuff to anyone. A few greedy people have turned our love into a nasty game that just doesn't sit well with me. MorphOS on a top of the line final edition of the G4 and G5 Macs is better in every way to the best classic machine every made if you know how to set it up properly for a tiny fraction of the cost of even a Classic Network card.

I suppose if you have tons of money, and you just really have to have this one, and you already have or don't care about an AmigaOne system.

That guy's got some seriously impressive hoarding going on.  11x A1200's?  15x A2000's + 8 motherboards?  42x A500's?  15x Amiga monitors?

And it looks like he's just added a collection of 12,000 floppy disks (in banana crates, no less!).

My phone automatically "translated" it to English, but you'd think for someone selling what amounts to potentially thousands of dollars worth of hardware, he'd do a better job writing item descriptions?

What say we pool our money and buy the A1200's - one for everyone on the forum!  ;)

You know that's not true. Real reason is that there are few A1200's in north America, whilst Europe is swamped with them (and A600's/500's).

Some of the answers I got make me wonder because it's obvious people
don't even know how to insert floppy inside to check if it's working and
I guess stock A500 without working floppy is not so useful :-P

The most notable way the U.S. differs from other industrialized countries is the absence of universal health insurance coverage. Other nations ensure the accessibility of care through universal health systems and through better ties between patients and the physician practices that serve as their medical homes.

Unfortunately, many still equate “universal healthcare” with “Government run” or “single payer” healthcare. It isn’t


Don't think I'm some sort of commie, i'm not - I have private health care here in Aus cause I can afford it (every one making more that $50k p/a is encouraged too, otherwise you pay a yearly levy).

Just yesterday I took my 2 year old boy into a private hospital for a minor operation and thanks to our health insurance it cost us Zero dollars.

If we weren't well off the same operation would have been still free, we'd have just gone to a public hospital and had to wait a couple of months instead (it was elective surgery).

We're facing the exact opposite problem.  I'm not one who gets his information from friends' Facebook wall macros or biased media archives, instead I have researched the actual industry for the past six years going back (at lesat) to the post-war 40s.  There may be a proper way to run government health care (eg "universal" health care,) but it's never been done in either a way which respects private property, or a way which doesn't cause resource shortages or dislocations of some sort.  Most "civilized" nations with centralized health care fall into one of those categories.

In the US, an implementation of any kind of centralized system will still leave people at the so-called "mercy of the corporations" because we have corporatists who run the government.  It is a disgusting incestuous relationship between government and the market, resulting in disfiguring mutations of the private market, resembling something more like a fascist economy and giving the recipients of poor care nowhere to turn and no legal recourse against failures.

Even under the HMO system, which was developed and run by the very same people who decry the system as inadequate, discriminatory, and uncaring, my own health care has been great, and I have always had the option of the type of coverage I want.  Under the "fixes" to the system I would have lost my coverage, which was far more than adequate for my existing needs (but I do like to plan for the future, being responsible and all,) lowered my monthly premiums by 10% but would have changed me from a co-pay to two deductibles: roughly $5,000 EACH for care and medications, and a whole slew of exceptions including stays (which is par for the existing Medicare system, in which the personnel may be covered, but the cost of the hospital room and stay beyond 24 hours is probably not covered.)

Thankfully that part of the law was changed, but now because I get to keep the insurance coverage which does very well for me I must pay a tax penalty because it (ready for this?) covers me TOO well.  W. T. F.

In terms of government coverage versus private coverage, the top provider for rejecting claims has been the government-run system.  The top provider for rejecting new applicants has been the government-run system.  The top provider with the most failures in care... you guessed it, the government-run system.  Leaves little doubt why our own so-called leaders exempted themselves.

In the end, it has been our government which has helped to destroy any vestige of reasonable care in this country.  Yes, "big medicine" has been part of it, but again not without fed collusion or coercion.

I'm hoping this helps you to understand our general distaste and mistrust of government-run health systems.

You know, anytime someone from another country starts his or her statement with "the biggest problem you have in the USA" the hair on the back of my neck stands up and I brace myself for an unrealistic assessment handed down by a foreign media or government which does everything it can to show how superior that country is to the US.

But you hit the nail right on the head and drove it deep.  We have a government which rules in absolute opposition to its people, and the members of that government minimize, harass, libel, slander, and pretty much pull every dirty propaganda trick in the book against any of the people who rise in opposition.  Hence all the misinformation against several of the popular citizen movements, the largest, and most maligned, of which is the Tea Party movement.

Anyway, none of this is why we're here at AO. :pint:

I lived most of my life in Europe, moved to the states some 10 years ago. I think I know both systems well now. When patients bash Obamacare who are otherwise medicare or medicaid patients I just shrug my shoulders and wonder what they are talking about. Most healthcare providers dont want medicare/medicaid or obamacare patients because they pay less than ie blue shield and other commercial insurers. Its about half compared to each other. On the other hand, since citizens have access to health care through insurance we have seen a surge in outpatient visits. Not a lucrative one, as explained above why. But at least the individuals who otherwise wouldnt have insurance (because they dont/cant work) now get outpatient medical specialist care, without having to run to the ER each time. This, longterm seen will cost the healthsystem less money, as most of the expenses are hospital care based. In my homecountry, healthcare insurance is mandatory. Everyone pays. If you have a job or not. If you cant afford it, the local state you live in, pays part of it (after you apply). Healthcare should be based on solidarity. The young and healthy ones pay for their older co-citizens. As a provider, I am not particular about seeing medicaid or obamacare patients (they pay the lowest) and I have to work twice as much to generate the same income and pay my employees. But I do it. Its just breathtaking, how negative propaganda influences a lot of citizens and make them bash things which are actually in their benefit. Not to digress here I will stop. My 2 cents.

I got an A4000 recently as I figured prices will only ever go in one direction. I wish I'd done it 10 years ago, but better than in 10 years from now.

What counts as hoarding? I think different models is ok, but it's maddening to see a load of A1000s piled up in a garage.

Amibay was set up to keep prices down but I worry it's concentrating all the good stuff in the hands of a small number of vultures. I'd rather let market forces dictate prices than see someone pounce on their 5th A3000 with a minute of it coming in.

My goal at first was to get one of each model, but we'll see in the  future.

I'll just keep upgrading my A2000 (still held at 8mb fastram until new hardware comes available ), as my 4000 is absolutely dead.

I can see trying to get enough to remain fully compatible, or maybe as the ebb and flow of upgrades go.  For example, I have an A4000D, but as far as upgrades go, it seems the A1200 gets most of them.  But I could still kind of wanting an A500 along with it, for those few programs that just refuse to run on an AGA machine.

For example, I currently have a 1040STf, MegaSTe, TT030 and Falcon030.  Each one of those are compatible/capable in their own way.  Unfortunately only the first and last actually boot to a desktop and the first one has weird vertical lines worth of  pixels missing :(  Still working on cleaning up whatever mice left in the MegaSTe, and for some odd reason the TT030 just gives me a white screen.

But that's part of the fun, tweaking and fixing the old beasts!

Not sure if you'd consider me a hoarder of Atari things.  Mostly I think it's a somewhat good idea to have a parts machine as well, but the people who just have garages full of things that sit unused....

Maybe I've just got weird taste but I actually kinda like it - using the ass-end of the '500 to build the front of the desktop case is actually pretty cool and I could imagine something like this as an alternate reality A2000 - props to the creator for some original thinking, it's just a shame it's such a hatchet-job...

And no - whilst I may respect the mad science that goes into creating such an unholy monster, I wouldn't lay down any cash for it :D

I'm pretty sure I have one somewhere of it.   But maybe not, the only Atari I have that doesn't have built in basic would be my 800.  I wouldn't mind getting a hold of the Star Raiders controller/pad and cartridge though, loved that game, used to have it, but I'm sure it was lost in the move somewhere :(

Speaking of old Atari stuff, I've recently obtained a Falcon, and I just found out today that there was more than just CLAB that got the rights to build them, and there is one out there called the Sonovista, which was a black one, and looks fantastic!  Too bad Commodore/ESCOM didn't just sell off the rights for Amiga so other companies could make them at the time.  Then again, Commodore went bankrupt, and Atari just quietly faded away by reverse merging into a hard drive manufacturer of all things...

It is interesting from the perspective now to see how well these two platforms have carried on.

Okay, is that an '030 under the heat-sink, because this 530 seems to be missing the "30" part.

Edit - looks like some were available with a PGA instead of an SMD '030.  Probably went through a few design iterations.  ;)

That's a neat looking accelerator.  I remember having an M-Tec 020 before I got my GVP A530+.  It was rock-solid.  I wonder how the Viper (aside from the obvious IDE and SCSI ports) would compare to my Derringer.

The last one I can kind of see, as it at least has an 060, is a 4000T (which actually are rare, unlike a A3000 zorro board), but that's till probably a bit on the high end.  If these were normal prices for A4000Ds, I should be able to sell mine for 8k, since I have an 060, Radeon, mediator, etc... Right?  anyone want to buy my A4000D for 8k? :D

There are almost 1000 posts that you have made and never started a thread? So how does this disgruntled phone thing fit into Crazy Ebay Listings?

You can find some good Amiga people still though. I gave an A4000 040 away to a friend that helped me get my A4000T up and running again for example just a few months ago. The only people selling at these prices are the jerks that are in it for the greed.

The last one I can kind of see, as it at least has an 060, is a 4000T (which actually are rare, unlike a A3000 zorro board), but that's till probably a bit on the high end.  If these were normal prices for A4000Ds, I should be able to sell mine for 8k, since I have an 060, Radeon, mediator, etc... Right?  anyone want to buy my A4000D for 8k? :D

I'll 'fess up. The last one was me. In my defense, besides the 4000T that actually was well packed and arrived safely, I got 5 big cases of hardware and software included that so far has all checked out as working. 3 AD516s, 2 Toccatas and 2 Picasso IVs alone made it worthwhile - at least to me.

Of course they say rationalization is a great defense mechanism so what do I know :)

Well, here's my contribution to crazy eBay listings - even too crazy for me :)

Ha!  As I said, the last one I could see on the crazy side of reasonable, not the outright insane things (like the F-19 Stealth one).  

I believe this was already discussed in this thread, but I think some of the insane prices mentioned were probably due to wife demand.  "Sell your stuff!"  "But nobody wants to pay for it, so I have to keep it...."

Subdue that blue lighting a little and I'd be happier with it.  I like the blue LEDs but most of the are ridiculously bright.  I just got an XU1541 and the blue LED lights up my room.  Really unnecessary.  I bought various bags of lower-output and diffused blue LEDs to replace the ultra-bright water clears with which I keep winding up.

Have they really gotten that rare or in demand?

No, its just the hoarders buying up crap is all. Those of us that actually use our systems instead of having them all sit on a shelf looking pretty suffer.

So sad, I remember when there was a whole ton of them new for 80 dollars, unfortunately at the time I didn't have a lot of extra income, and I couldn't justify 80 bucks since I already had an A4000.

God, what a jack ass.  I picked up two units when they were going for about $89 each some time ago.  I still have one unopened.  I would never presume to get $500 for it.  Maybe not even $100, honestly.

Ha, I'd consider buying that off you.  I've kind of been wanting one, and for some weird reason I haven't been able to get my A4000D to play CD32 games successfully.  I actually have wanted to get one of the controllers, though I heard the original boomerang was kind of crap.

I'm not sure of the generations of CD32 controllers.  I've always preferred them when playing games on my Amigas (kicked ass at Deluxe Galaga.)

But I won't be selling mine any time soon.  I plan to keep it as a gift to my grandson when he's old enough to play.  Later he'll get one of my Amigas, as well, just as his mother.

This isn't a particular, single auction but a general crazy auction that I just don't understand. All the auctions I see trying to sell magazine cover floppies. I just don't get it.

Why would anyone pay any amount of money, even 1 cent, for a 20+ year old floppy disk that might never have worked even when it was originally bought because of the trip through the mail with heat, rain, etc. Not to mention, it's a TWENTY PLUS year old floppy! Floppies under the best of conditions can fail in less time than that.

What's the point? I think pretty much every cover disk is available for download. Are there actually collectors that are completionist enough that they have to have an original cover disk, whether it works or not?

I bought the whole AUI coverdisk set about 10 years ago, they seem to all work. I just wanted the set. AUI had some great programs too. Yeah, some nut-collectors out there. :laughing:

Okay, I wouldn't actually call this a "crazy eBay posting" at all but it is.....exceptional:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Commodore-AMIGA-500-RESTORED-UPGRADED-1MB-CHIP-FAT-AGNUS-POWER-SUPPLY-MOUSE-REV6-/152177626783?hash=item236e7e4e9f:g:CZwAAOSwbYZXeGR0

So if I turbo-wash my A500 and replace some caps, I can almost get $400? Not bad. I think my trapdoor RAM expansion is even better. I need to get to work on this...

Oh, but my power switch does not have a light on it. Darn.

Update! It sold for over $400. Wow! This gives me hope on selling my A500. I just need to shine it up a bit.

On a side note, who would think an A500 would sell for about what a basic A1200 goes for? I know, A1200s are harder to come by.

Only the two larger caps pictured were replaced. I like the power light, but it seems to add $300 to the price for some reason. The problem I have with 'refurbs', is that of originality; How do I know it has an original ROM, or matching shielding, or matching upper and lower plastics? I'd much prefer to buy a warranty sealed unit if possible, or one that you just know the seller hasn't tampered with. Of course, refurbed is good when originality (matching of original parts) is explicitely stated. I'd never assume it.

But $400? I've never known a stock A500 go for that. Never ever. Nuts.

Yes with a few accounts you can minipulate ebay.  " New ebayer who backed out of the purchase" is a good way to drum up interest but dodge the commission. Now at 5.5k euros.

Edit: In the eBay app it shows as sold. On the eBay webpage it just shows as not available. Don't know why it shows differently. Maybe just using the item number 252446273146 would work.

I've just come across these Commodore-Amiga OS3.1 disk sets. I haven't seen any Commodore-Amiga OS3.1 disks before, only Amiga Technologies OS3.1 disks:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMIGA-OS-3-1-WORKBENCH-Full-Floppy-Disk-Set-Amiga-500-600-1200-2000-3000-4000-/322217614133?hash=item4b05aa9b35:g:L70AAOSwGXtXhMmH

(http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/L70AAOSwGXtXhMmH/s-l500.jpg)

These look very similar to my 3.0 disks except for that weird pronounced bar thing at the top of the label - looks different somehow. So I decided to see what I could find online and came across this over at Amiga history guide:

http://www.amigahistory.plus.com/amigaos31.html

(http://www.amigahistory.plus.com/comwb3.jpg)

These disks shown here at Amiga history guide are certainly not the same 3.0 themed label disks as in the auction. These disk labels are of 2.0 theme, which I find strange - mostly due to the fact that the 2.1 release disks carried the same label style / theme as the 3.0 release. Look at the books though, they carry the correct 2.1/3.0 theme / style logo. You've got to love Commodore's consistency. :)

$7,000 for what's supposed to be a prototype of a CD32 game but he's unable to provide pictures of it running. He also doesn't have the controller for it - something like the Joyboard but shaped like a surfboard. Anyway it's just a homemade CD that could simply be burned from the image available in several places for download.

Granted, 1000 USD is only a bit outrageous, especially for basically a stock system, maybe if it had the 14mb upgrade or a netusbee or something.

But this is the same seller for both Falcons, and the only difference is one comes with a VGA and the terrible Atari Mouse.  But apparently those two items are worth 750 bucks....

If you develop a relationship with them, they are very reasonable. Open to negotiations as you said, especially if you get several things at once. I've gotten quite a lot from them.

They have an advantage over many of us because through their contacts they find large lots. They've bought out the entire stock of several companies. If there are certain things that you are looking for, they keep a list and are good about keeping an eye out for you. They're not averse to taking parts from several partially working machines to combine into one working one for you and only charging for the one machine, not all of the donors like you would from most places even though it leaves them with several non working machines that it will be harder for them to sell.

It really does seem like their focus is to preserve as many fully functional machines as possible AND see them in active use, not tucked away in a collection.

This overpaying thing must be catching.
I actually bid on (and won) a Megachip for my Amiga 2000 last night (on eBay).
The fact that I may be buying it from one of you hasn't escaped me.

$127.50 to give my old girl a slight boost.
A very slight boost as its already at ECS specs except for the ability to address 2MB of chipram.

Was it stupid?
Maybe. But...wtf.

As it is, I'm having trouble holding off on purchasing an X5000 (as I already have the money saved) until the P5040 version is available (after all, for our purposes there isn't a real difference between dual and quad core, is there)?

And...if I get that, then there is always Jens' A1200, which is but isn't an Amiga, right? ;)

And even though I own an Altera DE1, a Mist system might be nice....

Hey, at least I'm not the dumb ass with the $13,400 current bid on the C65.

I draw the line at over paying for 8 bit stuff (unless you count me maxed out Atari 130XE).

Frankly, I'm not a Commodore fanatic (just a 68K fanatic), so I don't get the whole 8 bit Commodore thing.

They're listed 'For parts or not working'. Interesting thought is this...what if your blown capacitor works? Would the purchaser be able to make a 'Item not as described' claim and have their money fully refunded?

Yes sir, correct on all the above.  Also the power button switch tends to go (you can sometimes still source replacements from sources like Jameco), and the hinges on the monitor flap, especially on the 1084S, people kind of abuse many of those.  :/

I've gotten so many of the 1084's and 1084S's in the past year or so, just from the few lots of Amiga goodies I've managed to snag around here.  Ironically I don't even use them since I put Indivisions in my systems, they kind of become paperweights and things to trip over in my office, haha.  Gave a couple to another member on the forum here, and sold a couple others on ebay when nobody else seemed interested, etc.

Let me test this one out and think about it for a bit, and if you're still interested in this one I'll send you a PM!

A lot of this stuff is pretty rare in the US, but given the sorry state of this collection (and poor photos), it's hard to tell what exactly a buyer would be getting.  I'd imagine this is some old geezer who's been hoarding this stuff for years, with now failing health, realizes you "can't take it with you", and wants get some money for his grandkids, or something.

Eh, no interest, really, I just sometimes like to imagine the lives of people who sell stuff like this.  :D

I started this purge a while back.  After a couple of visits to the local flea market I realized I don't want to be one of these sad phuqrs with a storage room or table piled with "crap" I kept because "someone can use it."  I hate throwing out working stuff, but I also can't invest in storage for someone's future use to whom I will likely wind up giving it, anyway.

That and I really value my "collections" enough that I would rather in my untimely, or timely, demise my next-of-kin won't have to just load it all into a bin or put it up in some general garbage collection, they will know what they have and if it has value they can get something for it, or get it to someone who will appreciate it.

Thinking the same.  I've talked with people who do these estate sale and storage unit auction buys.  Based on discussions with them they'd likely go $500 to $1,000 for that.  There can't be too much time involved.  They're generally looking for one or two items to make the buy worthwhile, maybe a few, but over all this kind of mess could go in the skip.  A sad reality.

Ebay is funny with the disparity in sales.
Recently say an Amiga 1000 go for over $800, way over anything I ever saw.

I wonder if those types of sales come back on them due to over zealousness of some buyers who later regret.

Kipper2k has said in a few  threads that he wants one for the CD32. I don't know if the team is thinking of doing one - the CD32 would probably be the smallest audience - but if anyone can convince the team to make one, I wouldn't think anyone could be a more effective advocate than him. A couple of times he's sounded pretty adamant.

He said it wouldn't be that difficult since the expansion connector on the CD32 and the trapdoor expansion on the 1200 are essentially the same other than the physical connector.

Personally I think a CD32 with a Vampire accelerator would be just about ideal. Sure it doesn't have a keyboard built in but connecting one is easy. It's fairly small so easily portable, already has a CD drive built in, AGA with S-video if you didn't want to use RTG for some reason and I think it has the greatest free volume where the Vampire would be so cooling should be less of an issue.

What would be really cool would be if they could do something like the Paravision SX-1 that plugged into the expansion connector and let you plug the FMV cartridge into the SX-1. I know it's only Mpeg1 / VCD so it wouldn't have the video quality of Riva say but it would offload the processing from the Vampire. Maybe? I don't know enough to know if it could work that way but I can't help but think that that would be super exciting :)

As far as I know, you can plug an SX1 and an FMV cartridge in at the same time.
Now find an FMV cartridge.
And adding a Vampire to the CD32 would be no mean feat since the '020 in the CD32 is surface mounted.
The expansion slot might be one way to connect an accelerator, but the SX32 is the only one I know of that does that right now.

Personally, I love my CD32 with SX1, and would welcome something that would speed it up.
With a fast enough cpu, you might not need a full motion video board.

Good point.  Never thought of it that way.  I've been enjoying free listings for a long time, so I'm sure guys like this are, as well.

Naw, that's only $16,800 for the car, and don't you want something like a nice Fiat 124 Spyder?
That would require two more printers. :hammer:

Well, obviously its the Amiga 1000 that pushes the entire package (with printer) to over $10,000.
Not doubt, IF you offered him his price, he might be willing to test them (or SAY he did). ;-)

Why don't YOU go for it?
I get enough crazy reading posts about Gunnar's projects to take this too seriously.

It's a grand to ship the printer!   Gee, that brings the whole package, including shipping, to > $14,000!  

I agree with Oldsmobile Mike; eBay should charge for littering.

Yeah.  Well, it comes down to needing a new car or buying this amazing setup.  Obviously a one-of-a-kind opportunity.  I suppose I just don't love or respect Amiga enough.

The crazy thing is that if you look at his sold items, someone IS willing to pay his nutcase prices.

If you want to ask a ridiculous price for your item, that's your prerogative. If someone actually pays those prices, does that effectively justify his pricing? We joke and jeer about crazy pricing. Certainly we think they are crazy and would never consider paying them, but obviously some people are willing to pay. Maybe we are the crazy ones :)

I still don't think it's right and I wouldn't participate as either a seller or buyer. Unfortunately it seems as if, at least in some situations, we might be wrong. Do we need any more proof that the world is going to heck in a handbasket? :angry:

Dunno about the fool bit. But otherwise Yes. That's the basis of the "western" world. Capitalism.

If someone is willing to pay as much. That is simply "what it is worth". All other views are rendered invalid at the point of transaction. Worth is not a communal thing. It's the view between the seller and the buyer.
"Worth: equivalent in value to the sum or item specified"

@spaceman88. Crazy indeed. But clearly what it's worth.

Ha! I actually messaged that guy. He's in PA and wants to do do local, only. Says he's willing to come as far as VA, alternately I'm going to be in PA next month so could probably work something out. He says he's got an A2000 in the case currently but it's missing some of its trim pieces and bezels. I think if he were really motivated to sell it he'd at least take more pictures. Knowing how hard those missing pieces are to aquire, I probably won't go for it.  :(

It's marginally better because it includes some of the chips:

Not really a development kit, as there are no details, schematics, board layouts, etc.

And I'd be willing to bet that no one is happy this is being sold.

Oh you can bet right, but this is some good stuff. Anyone that can do this work could easily take the blank card and pay to have it reverse engineered for $600 or less. The parts are nothing special and are all easily ordered off DigiKey. If I had the spare time and money I would be all over this thing.

Also if you look at the seller and have been following Vampire development you would know this was someone with all that at his disposal. I would bet its in that drive as well. At least a good chance of it. He isn't happy from what I have been hearing.

Please ask the winning bidder if there was something specific he was drawn to about this item.  :D

Prices seem to be going higher than in the past..which to me is a good thing, as I have a ton of Amiga goodies.  That being said I%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!8217;m not a seller.  Either way is shows good demand and people willing to get in to the vintage Amiga scene.  :).

Last I checked they were maxing out around $200. Did not think a stock config would be in that much demand.

@gizmo350

I will probably do fleaBay also if I decide to put mine up. I will then probably turn around and try to find a PAL model. I am finding more reasons why it is a better way to go.

You can't even get a nice condish stock A500 for $200 now. These Amiga machines are selling for mad money lately. If you're looking on eBay, you really have to do your homework (if you're gonna mod an A500 best get a rev6a board). I can't even get a decent shape empty A500 case for less than $100 now. I also need a nice condish A500 keyboard which will probably set me back at least $50.

And with these new TerribleFire accelerators, the A500 is selling like hotcakes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yC2vx_fJy8

The A1200 is so hot these days 'cause, well, it's an A1200! :lol: I'm pretty much describing peeps that "are in the know" though. I laugh sometimes when a noob picks up an A1200 and asks "now what?". Yeah, nooby, all these Amiga add-ons are gonna COST you! :roflmao:

I recently found a brand new 21" W/S Gateway LCD in my stash and tried my NTSC A500 with the C= 23pin to 15pin VGA adapter on it and found it syncs down to 15Khz. I'm suddenly a fan of NTSC machines!

I've gone through my A500 phase and have settled on the A1200 footprint now.     And, it makes the most sense to stick with a PAL version. I am thinking my NTSC model will not fetch as much.

I had a 37" Sharp LCD HDTV from 2005. I was surprised to learn that it synched down to 15Khz also and even did a fantastic job with interlaced screens. The only problem is it did not like PAL and I have a lot of PAL software.  :D

Anyhoo, keep me in mind...

BTW, I just bought a MAC Performa 450, maxed out, in mint condish... Don't know why other than i got it on the real cheap. All original boxed with all the original software, books and all that came with it new for $200.00 + free shipping! Still waiting on delivery. Should be fun!

$850+ for an A1200 with a 40Mhz 030!!! INSANE!!! The collection of graphics software is nice but $860!!!!!! That is ridiculous!!!!!! Is this just some impatient person who doesn't want to wait for the Vampire V4 or a Big Box Amiga. This is ONLY an A1200. Has it even been recapped or RetroBrited or anything? Is it signed by Jay Miner or at least David Pleasance? What is the USP here?

The only honorable thing for this computer is to salvage it for a new red board.  Although, I have had amazing results from putting a case in the dish washer.  Well, minus the missing bits around the Del and Help keys.

I am at a total loss for words.  If this system goes for over $860, makes me wonder what I could get for my Blizzard 1260, 192MB, Indivision AGA, RapidRoad USB, HD floppy, 8GB DOM system.

But then there's this Commodore 64 BOX with a rare "refurbished" sticker.

https://ebay.com/itm/322908145132

Or this Commodore 64 complete with box and RARE FACTORY ERROR... very much a toss-up for me: this or the 1200.

I was watching that.  Think it's priced a couple hundred dollars on the high side, but hey, if people are willing to pay, right?  And at least in this case you'd know the owner and know where it's coming from, which is worth something (in my book).

I bought an a4000D empty box from EBay Maybe 10 years ago or so. When I moved the A4000 that I bought it for I believe it got me my money back and then some. You rarely see the boxes for sale because people who keep them want them and everyone else throws them out when they buy the computer. I would love to acquire an A3000T box but have never seen one for sale.

Not to mention the boards are battery damaged.  The Agnus alone is next to impossible to find for the A3000.  The guy went to a storage unit auction and found those.  Then went to the Amiga facebook group, asked for a "valuation" since he "knows nothing about the amiga" and got his head all filled with what the boards are "worth" by people there.  The chips being removed is enough to make anyone think the boards are dead and were just kept after the chips were scavenged for another system.


EDIT:  Looks like some fool spent $995 on the 3000T motherboard.

I made 3 offers on this, and he finally countered. eBay doesn't show you what the final price was - we settled on $500.

It took me a few days but I managed to get it to work and as a result now have a fully functioning 3000T again - worth every penny. :)

The damage report: it had two broken traces where the battery was (D9, D15 signals to the ROM), two blown fuses on the +5 outputs for the joystick and DB23, was missing a Paula and all zip ram which I filled in, Denise was inserted incorrectly, missing the SCSI controller chip. It also had the 8375 Agnus which doesn't allow the pal/ntsc jumper so I replaced that too. I also gave it 3.1 ROMs.

Do you think he's capable of pulling an amber out of the socket?  I was going to make him an offer for just that chip.  I just don't want to spend money and end up with a damaged chip... already have one.  I contacted one seller that sells amiga gear, among other vintage computer equipment, and they offered to sell me their last amber for $120... shipping included.  nice.
