    Hello everybody,

    I have a iPod classic 3rd generation 20GB new in plastic wrap.
    The packaging is in perfect condition.
    I really don't know the value of this object.

    Have you got an idea?

    Thank you very much.

    You've got a little while longer to go before this hits high-price retro status.

    I'm actually just curious to know how much this would go for at the moment..

    Based on iPods that actually sold on eBay, I would of thought £500+?

    :apple: iPhone 5 32GB White, iPad 3 16GB Black, iPhone 2G 8GB Sealed, iPod Video 5.5G 120GB, Shure SE425's :apple:

    Ok thank you.

    Others opinions?

    I'd say more in the range of $100 give or take, it's not particularly the first generation so it wouldn't fetch the premium.

    I'm going by UK prices here, maybe a little different in the US. An open box 20GB 4th Gen went for about £350 a few months ago, and sealed 30GB 5th Gens are selling at £150+ consistently

    But its all dependant on how much the buyer wants to pay I guess

    Ok, now I know you want an estimate, but its really worth what someone is willing to pay! If two wealthy collectors want the same thing, you could get lucky and get 500-1000$, possibly even more :rolleyes:

    Is it worth it? I don't know! If nobody wants it, then its worthless, you see my point?


    An iPod like this went for 779$ on ebay a couple of months ago ;)

    It is worth as much as people are willing to pay :p

    What's even worse at $9k is that eBay / PayPal fees are going to be nuts (although I doubt it'll sell anyway)
  18. macrumors newbie

    Yes I know I will not sell it 9k $. I will put it in auction in one week.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Why not just list it for say $500.00 instead of the 9k you have now and see if someone's buys it? And then put up for auction if it does not sell.. I bet you could get one person to buy.. Also $500 would be a great profit on that. :) :)
