One man's garbage is another man's treasure?

What do you guys think of this deal I found on craigslist?

I'm letting my Toshiba HD-DVD (HD-A30) player go. I'm also including the following movies:

Complete Matrix Trilogy (still sealed)
300
Bourne Identity
Dune
The Mummy
Serenity
Waterworld
I'm format neutral but it seems like a good deal to get me a nice backup drive/bedroom player and some nice titles. I have most of the titles but they could be ebayed or traded. I got him down to $125 for everything.

Yeah -- that's a pretty terrific deal.

I must say, if anyone is looking for a good HD DVD deal, check your local craigslist listings! Tons of Panicky Pete's offloading their hardware and software in my area!

I just checked it out. There are probably a half dozen in my area. Typically one of the players and a half dozen movies for around $130.

People are crazy.

True. (but I'm not going to suggest which one, buyer or seller, that applies to)

So many here have bragged about getting hi-def discs for an avg price of $10 each. Factor in deals on the player of a low of $100. They could have paid a low of $160 new for that stuff. Even if they paid $300, they feel that the difference is worth it to them.

There are those people on one side of the equation, then there are those who are looking to buy a backup player or two. I don't see that as being any more "prudent" than what that guy is doing.

Well I'm only seeing two sides. Keep your shit and enjoy it for what it is at the low cost of $0. Or sell everything at a loss losing a ton of money in the process.
