Series 2 Model 540 for $2,000.00+ !!!

Does this E-Bay seller know something that we on this form are missing, did the some S2 540s come in solid gold?? E-Bay Item 320482457909 has a starting price of $2,000.00 + $10 S&H. Its a never been used, used unit. If it was for a quantity of 100 units I would understand. I guess I am missing something.

The seller has a feedback of 1...guessing he meant $20.00 instead of $2000. Either that or he is a moron...

$2,000.00 is only the starting bid. It could go for more.

It's not like he needs more than one bid....

...unless he set a reserve at $10,000

I wish people wouldn't set up eBay sales while sleepwalking.

And what in the world does "TiVo compatible" mean?!?!

I got it. He's meaning to use Zimbabwean dollars, not US.

Looks like it's even missing the TiVo guy on front. Oh well, with no TiVo guy, I'm not buying.

Well, I simply asked the seller why such a high price and the seller explained they were new to EBay and didn't know how to end a listing early, so they changed the starting bid price to a ridiculously high amount so no one would bid on it. Don't want to start off being an EBay seller and getting negative feedback because you can't ship the item sold. I sent a link about how to end a listing early. Will at least save them some fees.

Of course, if it actually sells I'll put all my three of Series 2 on EBay with the same starting price!
