Why is ebay crappy? I find crap at my house to sell then I purchase crap from ebay. It is a vicious cycle. I have always wanted a Laser Disk player and guess what I purchased the other day? I guess I am having buyers remorse? I purchased a Pioneer CLD-M301 Laser Disk player which also plays cds and it came with a couple laser disk movies. This Pioneer is awesome: it weighs 100 pounds and is quite large. Now the laser disk movies are awesome also: it takes 3 sides of a laser disk for one movie (The Blues Brothers). Also the disks are shiny and are as big as my head.
While searching the web for a review on my fly new player I found this article from cnnmoney.com from August 1, 1992. The title is very long but this is part of it: “What to Buy in the ’90s. Should you wait for high-definition TV?” I say NO! This player plugs into my HDTV! (It is just not HD.) The player apparently retailed for $650 in 1992 and you can purchase it for $30 in 2008. Now who is the sucker? Wait…….
I also spotted this player for sale. Now this guy is from Canada so….. (insert joke). But he is trying to sell a CLD-M301 (like mine) for $125. That seems like a lot of money and this guy listed it in September 3, 2007 and was just renewed again in June 8, 2008 and his listing expires on July 8, 2008. I wonder if he will sell it before July? When would a normal person decide “I am NEVER going to sell this. Only a moron would purchase it!”?
