    I generally think around a hundred us dollars without box and in ok condition. Ive seen boxed ones go for about twice that as they are pretty collectible but have seen them also climb the better condition they are in.

    There is sometimes a speaker problem that come with them being this old and its a tiny screen. good luck finding one. I have always looked for them..

    I have one but it doesn't seem to work: nothing comes up on screen at all. Tested with new batteries (no adaptor). I just get a very faint light coming from the unit to tell that its actually on.

    Anyone know what might be the problem? I'm not very technically proficient.

    Well, the one I'm looking at is very mint, barely used CIB.

    $200+ isn't unreasonable for it?

    They definitely sell for that. As long as it doesn't have speaker problems or dead pixels, it's worth that much.

    With all the scalpers on eBay, you could ask for $500-700 dollars for this lot. Yes, people on eBay are ACTUALLY charging these prices!

    Yeah there are plenty of idiots who keep posting high BIN auctions and not selling their TG stuff because of it. They're hoping someone rich and stupid comes along. Any time those same items show up in a regular auction, they don't sell for nearly as much but at least they do actually sell. So if you have a store that you're going to be paying money on anyway, sure, you can try to price gouge it. I'd suggest just asking for $200 starting bid in a regular auction, tho.
