    If everything works I'd say it's worth it.

    If someone keeps flagging it, it seems someone probably doesn't like you or you listing it in a way that's getting it flagged? In all honesty, try selling it on here. If the price is right I know I's be interested.

    Probably you're asking too much, or it's other resellers who don't want the competition. I'd try selling through the forums or just keep reposting the ad.

    $30 for an NES is a good price now, it's actually a bit cheaper than what I would now ask for one. They're getting harder to find now compared to a few years ago, at least where I am. SNES systems are even more expensive now than NES systems, I used to ask around $30 for them but now they probably sell for close to $50-$60 locally. I haven't had any spare ones to sell for awhile now.

    I just use local online classified ads to list systems now, I've never had much luck at all selling things through forums. People never want to pay for shipping costs, it's easier to sell locally for more money with most items. I did sell a few things successfully on forums but only to other local members. With common high demand items like NES systems I wouldn't bother with forums at all.

    Thanks. Yeah they are going up in value gone are the days of a 10 dollar SNES huh.. Anyway I got lucky with the games I picked up. He threw in Mario cart and the SNES ended up being a mini SNES that worked after a good cleaning. Only thing broken is the reset switch which should be an easy fix. Also, need to deyellow it should be able to pull 60 for it.. So in the end I ended up with some AAA games for 10 bucks

    Yeah, that's a good price so you shouldn't have any issues. Just keep re-posting if you can, I hate people who must sit around and flag stuff all day. If it's in violation flag, if you don't like the price then just move on.
