Anybody have any thoughts on the value of an original Panasonic Showstopper
HS2000 with lifetime activation and an upgraded (120MB) hard drive? My
thinking is in the $200 range. Too low? Too high?

TIA!

Probably too low, but close. Check eBay completed auctions for
Showstoppers and Replay 3060, 3030, etc. A showstopper may be worth
less than a Replay because Replay will transfer life membership from a
Replay but not a Showstopper. This immediately makes a 3060 worth at
least $299.

Not sure I follow you. Doesn't my Showstopper's lifetime activation go with
the unit? All anybody needs to do is just plug it in and go, right?

Yes, your Showstopper's lifetime activation does go with the unit. The
previous poster was talking about transferring the lifetime activation to a
different unit (which may or may not be possible with a newer unit).

An HS2000 with a 30 hour hard drive sells for $149.00 on eBay.

I know that. :) I'm asking for opinions on my 120GB HS2000. I'd rather sell
it with Buy It Now than an auction, but I don't want to set the price too
low. I'm now thinking $225 would be the reasonable amount. Anyone
agree/disagree?

Thx :)
Rick

I wouldn't pay that much for an older unit like that. Check the
"completed items" section on ebay to find out what they actually sell
for rather than the listed prices.

I have to agree. That machine is plain old, even with the upgraded drive.
I'd be afraid to plunk down that much for something that could croak
tomorrow. Sorry....

Margaret

Yes that's too high. Anything over $50 is too high for any DVR that falls
within the realm of RTV.

I'm sure the other readers of this group are thrilled that you want to keep
asking me questions. If I wanted someone to go away the last thing I'd do
is keep him occupied here with questions.
