yes, it should go around that. imho, it's one of the best under $300 deal, if something like that being re-released..it would cost at least more than five times.

I paid slightly higher than that (it came with a case, though), and would gladly so it again.

There's an SQ80 and an esq1 at a store round here for 200 each.

I want the sq80 but I already have two esq1's so it wouldn't be worth the trouble it would cause me :-/

I paid $190 for mine last summer. I've seen them go for more and less. Great little synth!

I would like to add that I purchased my sq80 from Daddys junky Music and they tend to check out what they sell before hand, thus why I was willing to pay as much as I did. On ebay you'd probably pay less.
