    I am wondering if I am missing something with the pricing on Hannah checkers in the selling forum here. I’ll see them priced $35-45 with no reagents, typically with shipping included. They go quickly and people seem to pay asking price.

    New they go for just under $50, frequently shipped for free if bough online, or priced to be about the same with taxes at LFSs, with reagents costing $8-24.

    Why are people willing to pay more than new or only save a dollar or two on an electronic device, sight unseen? That dollar or two is likely lost to shipping if minims aren’t met for free shipping.

    Is there something I am missing or not getting with these used checkers?

    Thanks man.

    The prices I was seeing didn’t seem to make sense to me. I wasn’t sure if there was something to do with features/quality of older untis or if people just weren’t paying attention to the actual cost for the used units.
