Used price dropped

Looking at ebay Sold Listings, is it fair to say that a dual tuner Premiere is worth less than $300?

Without a lifetime sub--in other words, just the hardware--I'd say street price is $50 or less.

And that was before the Roamio was released.

With Lifetime sub. I agree hardware alone ain't worth much.

I have a 2-Tuner Premiere that I cannot give away. I have listed it on eBay and Craigslist numerous times without a single bite. And it is worse with the two TiVo S2 DT units I have collecting dust...

I check Colorado craigslist at least weekly, many times daily for free and inexpensive Tivos and I have never seen your listing. You must live far enough from Denver that your listings don't show up on our listings. I live in Arvada, but craigslist brings up other areas of Colorado down on the bottom of the page.

Yeah the 2 tuner Premiere units really took a dive after the Roamio's were released. Units without lifetime are essentially worthless. And units with lifetime are worth maybe $300, if that.

S2 units without lifetime are completely worthless. I have like 4 of them in my closet right now.

I sold a Premiere for $40 to a lady last month that is just going to use it for the half hour time shift feature.

It cost me $20 with a Tivo Wireless adapter. So not a big profit, but I needed the wireless adapter, so I am rid of a Premiere that was just sitting around. I have sold Series 2 too without lifetime, but only rarely. Maybe 4 of them over 5 years.

I haven't re-posted it in many months. The listing expired and I haven't renewed it. The were listed in Denver.

Do you have a S2 -240 that you don't want?

What would you take for it? I need one to repair my S2 that the power supply went out on.

Well, I finally sold both of my S2 DT boxes tonight. I had a guy contact me through my craigslist posts. He was interested in the upgraded unit (I had one stock and one with a 320GB drive). Well, I gave him both. I wanted them out of the house. They have been on a shelf for two years with multiple bites that have fallen through. I got nowhere where I wanted for them, and less than I was asking for the one box in my posting, but I also wanted to trim the fat.

I sold 3 within a week for 1200 dollars after I got the roamio and 2 minis. But they had lifetime and 1Tb drives.

I considered adding lifetime to the units prior to selling, and even advertised them on craigslist as such trying to assess the marker for them. Not so much as a bite.

Add lifetime to them first then advertise them. When I was looking for a lifetime unit, I ignored the ones that could get lifetime but hadn't yet.
