    Hello everyone,
    I think I am going to sell my Panasonic WJ-MX12 mixer. I am looking
    for an appropriate reserve price. how much should i put my reserve
    as? There do not seem to be any of these mixer selling on ebay at the
    moment, but I have seen them (withen the past year) go for $500. Is
    anyone interested in buying my mixer?

    Just did a quick check because I thought I'd seen several yesterday.
    There's five of them recently completed between $250 and $535 depending
    on condition and extras. If I were selling mine I'd list it no reserve
    with a starting price a little under $200.

    I haven't actually charted it, but it seems like the items that get at
    least one bid fairly early tend to creep up before the final push, and
    bring a higher price that the stuff that's still sitting at zero bids in
    the last five minutes.

    There's one vendor that lists a lot of studio grade video gear in the
    worst possible manner. $50 opening bid, top of the range "buy it now",
    and a hidden reserve that must be about a nickle under his "buy it now"
    price. Like I said, he lists a lot of stuff. Checking completed
    listings shows that while he may find an occasion sucker, most of his
    listings don't sell.

    Later,
    Joe

    That would be Dave Riddle. And it's funny, because he's otherwise a pretty
    smart guy . . .

    I've gotten the impression that some dealers use e-bay
    as an advertising vehicle. They aren't that interested in
    moving stuff cheap, but are trying to drive people to
    their site to sell direct (without e-bay and PayPal
    getting in their cut).

    So start the auction at $200, do a 7 day auction or a 5 (as long as it
    ends on a sunday, right? I think sundays are when your items sell the
    highest), and hope that someone bids on my auction in the begining,
    because that ends up having the auction go higher later on... right?
    So I think what you are saying is make the price cheap because it will
    actually boost the price of the unit in the end... am I right?

    I buy nearly all my gear on the used market. And in his case, that hasn't
    worked with me. I just think he's a premium-priced outlet like Media
    Concepts. I only call guys like that if I need it NOW.

    Send an offer to my email if you are interested ;)
    Alittle background on the unit: It was given to me from a school
    teacher who taught the students how to put together a morning new
    show. I helped the school upgrade their analouge system to digital,
    so the teacher gave this to me as a gift (because they were going to
    throw out the equitment and me being a film student, he thought I
    could do something with it.) Since my major is not in broadcasting
    and since i can do most of the stuff that a mixer can do in my digital
    set-up now, I have no use for it. I will probably put it on ebay and
    I am also happy to email you when I have posted the unit for sale,
    unless you make a very nice offer. If an offer is made and I accept I
    will ask for a paypal payment first and then the unit will be shipped.
    No personal checks

    Sort of.

    Most of the bidding will happen in the last few minutes. If your start
    price is too high bidders will think in terms of getting it for that
    price and hold off on bidding. If there's already a bid in they have to
    think in terms of "How bad do I want to get it away from the guy who
    already has it."

    You don't want to start too cheap because then you're competing with the
    dumpster divers selling "works great" but "untested" stuff "pulled from a
    working environment". (translation: Discarded because it no longer did
    the job.)

    Later,
