    I thought this might be like a "we want to smelt the gold out of your crap electronics" thing, but it's really a "we want to under pay for your perfect condition used goods so we can resell it, like a pawn shop".

    I know, it is terrible that they would want to make a profit. They should pay us retail and make no profit at all.

    Please don't use sarcasm, half of us don't understand it and the other half doesn't care what you think.;)

    Hey, at least its one more spot to sell your old gear. Shop around and see what the best rate is for something before you use one of these kinds of services.

    You could make a lot more just placing an ad on Craigslist. Of course you have to do a little work. $36 for my XBox 360 Core in perfect condition with all accessories and box? That is hilarious. I understand they are trying to make some money but that seems scandalous.

    With all the shit I have it would either have no value (costing me money to send it to them) or it just doesnt yield any search results.

    If its anything like my craigslist, Id get more out of Newegg. Nothing I put up on Craigslist sells.

    I priced out a 10 year old digital camera, and they listed it at over $100. I think they pay based on resale of the items. What's popular will get you more funds. I smell a newegg-ebay type thing after they build a bit of stock?!?!

    thats what i am hoping i want a H50 cheap lol $40 used on newegg would be bad ass.


    so i wonder how a warranty would work. since its going back though a retailer wonder if there will be anyway to retain the factory one

    I would assume it to be like the brake light warranty at a used car lot;)
