    Sony DVP-S7000 27242518780 | eBay

    A 20 year old DVD player for $1000 plus $80 shipping with "tentative shipping in January 2018". If it wasn't for the fact that this unit makes a relatively good CD player, it would best be used as a door stop.

    BTW, the going rate of these Sony's is around $20 to $40.

    I agree $1000 is nuts. There do seem to be some special/rare versions - in champagne gold and gunmetal grey, with some kind of outboard remote/editor/shuttle-dial unit - going for $400-$500.

    I have wondered before what the rationale is for pricing some items WAY above what they are worth.

    It crossed my mind that it could be some type of accounting/tax/financial/insurance scheme.

    It says you can make an offer. Maybe that’s what the seller expects? Seems pretty dumb to me though

    I’ve thought the same thing myself. I only buy cd’s on eBay (I’m about to stop - but that’s another story....), but I’ve notice some crazy prices recently. The volume of this seems to
    Have shot up recently.
