    Here is the deal, I want a Blue Book value on a video product, but I have the strong urge not to pay for the information via funds. In fact I simply will not pay. What I am looking for is similar to this:

    http://www.usedprice.com/aspsite/loo...&lookuplevel=1

    The above link is Orion's Audio Blue Book, absolutely free. That is how I would like for the video blue book to be, free.

    The products I am interested in finding are the Toshiba SD-9000 dvd player.

    The info I am looking for is the MSRP, used price, mint buying price, and average buying price.

    Thankyou in advance for any help,

    What you're asking for is unethical. I suggest you look elsewhere for the information. Or, better, pay for it.

    unethical?, because it is taking information that should be readily available to any consumer that wants it, how is that unethical?

    If you're only supposed to get the information by paying it, then that's the only way you should get it. Just because it should be free in your opinion doesn't mean that it is. It sucks like that sometimes.

    So someone who is willing to pay should give you a free ride? And why should the info be free? It costs money to gather and edit information and to build and maintain a website.

    So everyone here has a legitimate copy, that they paid for, of Windows XP then? No one here has ever copied a DVD or a CD with no intent of paying the studios.

    You do know that people hack these sites so anyone can use them right? The link I posted in the starting post is the audio portion of Orion bluebook. The way the Orion blue book is setup allows a max of 1 year subscription, this link has worked for 2 years already. It was also updated. This likely means it is a hacked link, so not likely that an individual paid for it and then sent it to all his buddies.

    Sure but we don't advertise it as if it were our god-given right to do so. With the exception of mob flicks and Robin Hood, no one likes a self-righteous thief.

    Were you not lamenting the decline of moral values in our society at large in some other thread?

    Just because you are content to take these actions, don't assume others do. My XP is legitimate, I have no copied DVDs or CDs.

    BTW, if a bank's vault is open and no one is looking, is it ok to walk in and take money? What you are saying is, if you can do it, its ok.

    No, my heart is not as pure as the driven snow, not everything I've done is ethical, but I do try.

    I suppose if I really need the info I could just pay for it, as it is only for one item, I just don't want to pay $4 and find out my DVD player is only worth $20, that would piss me off.

    Holadem, I think the rule is if it is under $10000 just leave it, and if it is over $250000, again leave it.[​IMG]

    Ebay is a very good indicator of what something is worth and it's free. Another way might be to actually try to trade it in. Some retailers will take trade-ins; they'll be happy to tell you that your dvd player, receiver, speakers, etc., are actually worth next to nothing to them. Maybe they'll even give you all the other information you want.

    The Toshiba SD-9000 doesn't appear on Ebay to often, and info about it is limited. The only thing I know is the original retail was $1200.
