How Much Are Used Electronics and Gadgets Worth?

by on Apr.13, 2012, under Featured

Just when you think you’ve got your surround sound speaker or home theater system or the latest LCD TV perfected, a new standard or technology comes along to blow away the performance and confidence of your existing setup. You have just bought the latest mobile phone available in the market with all the latest features like great camera, super fast processor, touch screen but soon you come to know you have a superior version available. Technology tends to get outdated very quickly these days.

People like to stay up to date when it comes to gadgets be it mobile phones or their laptop or be it any gadget. Take the case of iPhone you have a new one every year. What is the worth for your old one. Gadgets age fast indeed very fast, it’s even worse for computers, whose age is even lesser. You bought one with the best processor available, huge memory and everything available on board but this configuration might not be the best just even after a month. Which leaves gadget fancy people with no option but to upgrade.

This being the case, one can’t help but wonder: What to do with all the electronic clutter? Thankfully, the answer is both simple and good for your household budget. If the product is in good shape, then you could sell it at the online marketplaces. Sure, you can always sell a damaged or partly broken phone, but, obviously, you will not get so many offers than when you will offer it for sale in a good condition.

There are many websites who purchase second hand computers and laptops, used cell phones, Apple iPods, iPhones, PDAs, smartphones, MP3 players, old software with valid serial numbers, and video game consoles and even the quotes are instant.

Then there are websites who won’t buy your gear outright, but here you can list your gadget or item, set up a price and people can bid upon it or buy it directly. These websites have a cut in the deal done.

Always remember – every penny saved will take you a step closer to a purchase of that amazing new high-tech upgrade.

Xbox Micro 1-Inch Thick

by on Aug.16, 2009, under Computer, Gadgets, Gaming, Technology

Welcome to Micro PanacheBlog! In the absence of hard hitting stories and shocking exposés we thought we’d turn to the “lighter and thinner” side of the news. Enter the Xbox Micro, a 1-inch thick celebration of all that is good and holy about the world of DIY mods. A modder by the name of Bandit5317 created this amazing mod of an original Xbox, cramming in a 320GB HDD (though no optical drive) in the process, took six months to make, with a few clever design decisions along the way, but it looks good enough to make even the ninja-black Wii suck its gut in.

The polycarbonate case holds the guts of a flashed Xbox, so even though it’s got no DVD drive, it’ll serve as a great media center with the help of XBMC. It definitely makes the current crop of consoles look bloated in comparison, though we’re told it runs a bit hot due to the tight quarters inside. Still, it’s a great mod, especially given the original Xbox’s considerable girth.
