I can see why it would be frustrating if you search this thread hoping to score a good deal... but its pretty much expected that people would try to break even on unused items. Used items on the other hand... I agree that people need to accept that the item is no longer worth what they paid.
But I do disagree that almost everyone here is trying to break even or make a profit... most of the posts I've seen here are a pretty good deal! There's the occasional post that is high, but the seller usually realizes they have overpriced and drops their price afterwards.
And yep, people should do their research before buying something anywhere - whether its on this forum or elsewhere online. Its up to us to make sure we're getting the best deal we can

I know I've been quoted on here several times higher prices than buying the exact same thing, brand new, online! It would be nice if we could just look out for each other and pass the stuff along, but I suppose those are pipe dreams... A lot of people probably come on here and automatically think they're getting a better deal than buying online or in stores. Be careful and weigh your options. Remember on here you're buying it used even if the seller claims they never used it.
