    I have just watched an Apple iSight go for £161 on eBay that I came across by chance whilst browsing. For those in the USA, that is $313!

    I mean, I understand it is a beautiful webcam, but with the lastest addition of USB support, and with other compatible iSight replacements going for under $100, I just don't get this.

    I wish I owned one of these now. I would be immensely happy to get even half of that for it!

    Believe it or not money means different things to different people. Can't judge them for throwing it away on a bad deal.

    They just have more money to spend than you or I do and/or are crazy :p.

    I need to get on with selling mine!

    iSight in box, only used a couple of times, with all attachments, only £100!

    Save 60% on that eBay price! (and I won't make any profit, I'm not greedy)

    UK only please. Exceptions will be made for long-term MR members. (over one year or 200 posts)

    I think it would be best if you made a new thread in the Marketplace. Also, if you can make a profit why wouldn't you? Like someone else said - supply and demand.

    I did, a long time ago, and got zero interest. Maybe UK people don't tend to look for iSights in the Marketplace. (you can't search the Marketplace for UK either - Arn is aware of this.)

    I'm happy just getting my money back for it, which is far more than I would expect for any second-hand electronic goods. £160 is overpriced.
