That may be a good thing (For you). They may have beat a hasty retreat otherwise.

I was able to sell this product for less, than the expense of the purchase price and the card modification (300 €). Real price 300+ Euro.
That is the reality of modifying a product that is still being made and retailed.
You were warned. several times.
And i hope this explains to you the fact that the card ain't rare yet.....

And more over, i hope you are able to grasp the reality and acknowledge it.....

and BTW. grats for selling the card

If a card limited (ACA1232 50 MHz), and all sold under 1 month (2015. dec., was 300 Euro), never more available, and I modification a 33 MHz 1232 card (original price was 155 Euro) to 50 MHz, and 100% OK, then my card rare, and real price min. 300 Euro. Thats is the reality.
The modified card is more valuable at the original card. The modification increased the value of the card.
Why does nobody understand this?

If I modified a Blizzard 1240 68040 25 MHz (400 Euro) card to 68060 50-80 MHz (Blizzard 1260, 600 Euro), then I increased the value (min. 200 Euro) of the card. Many people did this already.
They sold (amibay, 600-700 Euro, 66, 75, 80 MHz) many cards already. Nobody complained that the card is modified. Everybody was glad that somebody modified the card.

My card is very rare, it has a unique serial number that makes it super special.

Because that is not the case. The same BASIC board is STILL BEING MADE.
If i can go to a retailer and purchase a 33mhz card and modify it to 50mhz at home, because i have the skills and the hardware required for the mod. then the card is NOT RARE.... get it?
Or do you still choose to live in denial?

Now you are talking. Blizzards went out of production in the mid 90's.
Modifying a 040 for a 060 and do the job well. then, yes... I'll agree to your increase in value. And of course, any of the blizzards are rare now days...

The ACA1232 25, 33 MHz cards rarer, than the working B1240/25.
If B1240 to B1260 mofication OK, then ACA 1232 33 to 50 MHz modification OK.

The 1232 is becoming rare in the form it has gone through a revision change and the name is 1233 now.. ok i'll give you that one.
However, you can still pick up the 1232's from online auctions.

And you still neglect the fact that the aca's are still being made. someone is actually making new boards for the amiga 1200.
with or without any modification it is still retailed.
This makes the ACA's common.

The blizzards went out of production in 1998 when DCE in germany quit making them. Therefore the blizzards are rare today.

please say you understand now......

Example of a different product:

MEDIATOR 1200 TX BLACK PCI BUSBOARD + MMCD
US price: $258.32
EU price: €287.48

EU price converted to USD = $304.5
Differende: $46.18

Another example:
Indivision AGA 4000 / CD32 MK2cr
US price: $179.63   
EU Price: €199.90

Eu price converted to USD = $211.7
Difference: $37.07

No difference?

What are you going on about?

If you order within EU prices will be higher compared to ordering to the US due to VAT.
