He said he checked into pricing and they are worth the $400 ballpark!... ... .. . I told him with patience eBay deals can be found. It was entertaining though.

:shock:

Whatever he is smoking, hope it is legal in that state. Heck, a brand new 8077 (newer model than an 8088) lists as $400, but can be purchased brand new for $250 from Security Snobs, or used from them for $55.

See them NIB on eBay for $30-50 frequently. Used for $10 and up.

We even have a member here selling them for about $15 each (no box, no change key, no instructions, but yes combination).

^^^ What Gordon said. I got an 8088 just recently for $25 (plus shipping), and am watching some various 8077 revisions at the moment from between $30 and $85, all NOS / NIB stuff with instructions and change key

LOL definitely some goofiness going on. I'm with Gordon maybe some smokage of funny things is to blame. Even worse a high content of fluoride in the municipal water supply lol. He doesn't eBay or online price reference and probably quoted a catalog. Just sucks that they are sitting on a shelf covered in dust!

Re: S&G 8088 fair price?

Depending on how good friends you are (and how good friends you want to be afterwards), you might want to send him a link of an eBay search for recently sold 8088s. Or if he's not much of a techie, run the search yourself and print out a load of screenshots. Explain that you don't mean it in a harsh way but more just so he doesn't end up sitting on stock that won't sell, especially when only a very few select collectors (who know how to search eBay) are going to be his customers for this stuff,
