Maybe because of "Collection only", so there was a limited number of people who were interested.

This exaggerated as low price (then we see if they sell it to him! ;) ) But the Sun no rare system.
Even in Italy are Give, do not have much software available, and maybe this one reason.

Well, you may love your blade 2000 but many others (my self included) can't stand the power grubbing beasts. I wouldn't take one home if it was free even.

Also, they (both the Blade 2000 and Blade 1000) use FC-AL drives, which are expensive and / or uncommon were I live.

Not so rare and expensive, are the FC you buy an array including many FC disks with little expense, once cost a lot but if you choose cuts 36/72gb widespread as you find them quite easily.
And that the Sun will have no market, systems are beautiful but not collectible.

The crazy thing is if you see the UK eBay BIN prices for Blade 1500's and 2500's they range from TWO HUNDRED++ to over a THOUSAND pounds!

They never sell!!!! Just look at completed listings. I had to wait ONE YEAR(!!!) to get a Blade 1500 for under £100 on eBay... as a BIN.

I bet though at auction they would not even reach £100...

I just wish those sellers could be more realistic... because every day they are depreciating and lets face it they are never gonna sell at their asking price.

Edited to say: a few 1500 silvers under 200 and make an offer... so it is getting a LITTLE better!

Many people do not want to sell on ebay of course, the prices range from zero to a thousand for the same things, you're right to say this, mysteries ....??? :?

The prices on Blade 2500's with dual 1.6 GHz sparcs, dvd drives and XVR1200 graphics are even starting to get pretty reasonable... :shock:

Try to buy good vintage music gear, it's much worse. 4-5 grand? No thanks, not on eBay.
