Two SD Receivers - Opinions on a Price Point for Sale?
I'm going to be selling my neighbour's two Shaw Direct receivers for him. I wouldn't mind opinions on a price point. He has two of the so-called "essential" receivers, the 600s, plus two IRC 600 remotes. All look virtually brand new. It's possible one of the remotes was never even used, as my neighbour is extremely elderly and was "coaxed" by the installer (in my opinion) into getting two receivers when he only really needed one. So the one remote, as I said, wasn't ever really used.
Both receivers are currently deactivated because he's moving on April 1. I have concerns about anyone being willing to buy them without seeing that they work. Although, as many of us know, just because you have new equipment directly from Shaw Direct doesn't mean it will work any better than something used. :-)
I could activate them on my account if that would help sell them, but I'd like to avoid that if at all possible.
They're about 1 1/2 years old, by the way.
He said he'd like $75 for both, but my gut feeling is his price point might be a bit high, particularly since they aren't activated.
Any opinions on that price point?
