non-scientific LED calculator worth more than HP35 red dot?



#2

Would anyone pay UKP1035.90 (~ USD1600.00) for this?: Realtronic red LED on eBay.


edit: from the Datamath museum info this is probably one of the "Far East Generic Design" types

Hello!

Look at his other auctions, he obviously has set his calculator to engineering number format or something like that ;-)

Well, he couldn't have been using that one then as it doesn't even have have engineering format :-).

I think he's trying to get hits or a higher offer. It's been listed for about a year but previously at around 45 pounds IIRC. (Still not worth it, but he's not getting the message).

Very strange. His Britney Spears CDs too have buy-it-now prices in excess of 1000 pounds. I always thougt the higher the starting price, the higher the eBay fees, even if the articles don't sell?

It's like a lottery. He pays that fees to get a low chance for a stupid buyer.


#7

I was thinking that maybe he is hoping for that one big sale.

#8

I wouldn't do it.
