Samsung 152T: I paid about 400 for this about 3 years ago and its still in perfect condition. I was extremely happy with this purchase. I just dont use it anymore. PM me or post your offer here.

Viewsonic VA520 (TV-READY): This is my parents monitor, and I just bought them the new 17inch iMac so they do not need this monitor anymore. My dad paid about 350 for it, but since the quality is not as good as the Samsung 152t, I am willing to part ways with it for less. PM me or post your offer here.

i wouldn't expect more than 200$ each, 15" LCD's were basically the first size LCD's came in (generally) and sooooo many people want to get rid of them now that 17" are more of a standard. Maybe 220 for the TV ready one. hope that helps

Circuit City has the samsung for $149 (NIB, free ship), and because the Viewsonic has worse quality it is probably worth less than that.

never go ebay, i am having the worst situation with the buyer, and paypal is holding my money that i need as well as my account is still in negative, and the buyer wants a full refund when i lost 45$ in fees total....NEVER USE EBAY FOR ANYTHING OVER 20$

When you get $60 for it on eBay you have to pay listing and final value fees. which amount to about $8 on that plus you would have to pay paypal another probably $8 and be left with $44 so the offer of 50 - 60 is actually better than you would get on eBay!

i have no idea what you are talking about.....maybe if the item sells for like 100k the fees would be that high....listing fee would be no more then 2 dollars.....and paypal is about 3 or 4ish.......its not like ive never used ebay before....i know how the fees and such work so please dont take me for an idiot and try to talk me out of making the most possible money i can.

I really don't really care how much you sell it for or where. I agree that you should try to get the most possible for your stuff. I also just checked the figures and realized I was calculating it wrong the eBay fee would be about $5 for the final value fee plus whatever the insertion fee would be. (Probably less than 2) and paypal would be $3 so the total would be about $10. Which means you would get $50 plus shipping if it sold for $60 like the one you mentioned. I don't think I was that far off but I will admit my calculations were off a bit.

I really do wish you good luck in selling them though.

ok well that viewsonic monitor is on ebay now for around 95 shipped, with 5 hours left......and the syncmaster went for 120 + 20 shipped......so if anyone wants to make an offer around that, go ahead.....but please dont waste my time by offering me 1/3 the price like you guys were before
