Remember when..
« on: December 16, 2018, 12:18:58 pm »
Remember when you could find fairly decent prices on ebay?
Case in point:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GENERIC-EMPTY-AT-DESKTOP-COMPUTER-CASE-POWER-SUPPLY/223276575309?hash=item33fc522a4d:g:5BgAAOSw8iZcDu8p


Condition: IN GOOD CONDITION

INCLUDED: EMPTY DESKTOP COMPUTER CASE

NOT INCLUDED: POWER SUPPLY UNTESTED, SCREWS AND/OR POWER CORD

You have found a great deal so bid now and get these at a fraction of the retail price.

Comes from a smoke free environment

Thanks for shopping!!


Come on... $120 bucks + 45 shipping for an old EMPTY PC case?? At least it came from a smoke free environment. Yeah rite.

I remember when they were only $30 new. I'd order them as part of a barebones system from mwave.

Bro, look how many PS4 Pro and XB1 empty BOXES are up for sale. For an empty cardboard box!

Well it's probably still cheaper than amazon prices, so I guess it's better than nothing.

I personally have never ever, ever, seen anyone ever try to charge more than something should be worth on ebay, craigslist site. Seems as if one did see such an event and was not born yesterday you would presumably just laugh to yourself click out of it and move on.

By the way if he does sell it than it is worth that much, the value of something is worth what someone else is willing to pay for it; if he does not ever sell it than he is just wasting his own time.

Asking price != actually sold for this price
Nobody cares about your hot takes on Arcade1Up cabinets.

I remember when PC AT cases weighed 70 lbs and you could not give them away for $10.  You always ended up needing stitches if you dissembled anything inside to make it an empty case. 

Go to Frys and see their cases without PSUs for $120.  Better still go in store and see the mess that is their PC case display for $120.  They are smoke free too.  ;D
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

Yeah, I dont know if you can even find an AT motherboard anymore, that would fit this scrap heap.
Maybe he expects a museum might be interested in it?
My house is 30 years old, still in good shape though, think I can get 10 times what it is really worth?

I have a small stack of AT motherboards in my basement. :)
Maybe I should put them on ebay and match them to the cases price.

Uh, thatís for the LED strips, not the case.

Doh. This was part of the original search line-up and is less than fifty dollars shipped.
