What's a reasonable price for a Fizmo with the voltage fix nowadays?

I'm sure $1400 is NOT it

Asking prices for SP-12's seemingly through the roof lately. :?
Might actually be justified the day someone figures out how to integrate a flash drive hack, ala the 1200.

Beautiful B3, but if memory serves, price is about double what would be fair?

Ayup. I've seen the market do a couple of strange dips in these over the years ... waited long enough and finally got one for a decent price. Wholly worth it, good luck. :hippie:

I mean, what possibly could this guy be thinking?

If this auction happens to be someone here's listing, and you are offended, which normally I do not go out of my way to offend people, in this case, TOUGH!

...I offered him the equivalent difference in price between a working Xa with all cards and his asking price. I don't expect a response. I'm sure I'd get told to sod off. :lol:
