    This unit is now sold. The ironic thing is that it was probably your bantering that drove traffic to this thread and got it sold.

    By the way, just because it's a public forum doesn't mean that you need to be rude. Trying to convince others that it was priced too high without any data to back it up wasn't necessary. Good luck to you.

    How was I rude? Because I stated I didn't think it was a good deal? How is that rude? I just stated the facts as I saw them. I think all the people posting here are sellers and want people to think these things are worth more than they are. Wonder how that lifetime service is going to look after the unit breaks down in 2 years because it's a used unit.

    much better to have someone using a piece of equipment than it sitting in a closet. And then you can take that money and spend it on something and try and get this poor economy going!

    Thanks. I already spent the money on an Elite. I'm loving the 4 tuners in one box, but I have half the storage I had with the two upgraded Premieres. I'm looking forward to the day that I can put 4TB in the Elite :)

    Exactly, so if he put a larger motor in that used car it potentially could be worth more than it was new. Just depends on the motor and the overall shape of the car. Now if the car came with lifetime gas or lifetime insurance then it's worth what the buyer feels its worth.

    generaltso's been here 8 years, you've been here what, 8 days? A couple of weeks?

    No one's saying you can't question his price, no one's saying you can't disagree with his price, but perhaps you could consider your tone when you do so. Your's struck me as rather undiplomatic.

    Even a used Premiere is only going to be about a year and a half old at most, which means if it hasn't failed already it probably won't for some time yet, and even then it'll probably be the drive or power supply, which are easy fixes, whereas a new one hasn't proven itself yet. Electronics (not counting parts with moving parts) usually fail almost right away if the cause is going to be anything other than old age.

    Figure $400 if it's MSD lifetime, another $100 for the 2TB drive*, and $50 for a used Premiere, and the labor already done and just waiting for you to run Guided Setup, so I don't think that's such an unreasonable price.

    *try to find that model that cheap now, with WD's Thailand plant underwater
