New thrift store find.

New thrift store find.

Postby wshirk » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:26 am

So while looking about at my local Goodwill, i happened upon a 5 disc DVD changer, and they originally wanted 25, well, knew the manager, and got them to go down to 20, and so i picked it up. It is a Samsung from 2003, and has progressive scanning through component inputs, and everything works. Took it apart carefully to clean the laser with alcohol, and got it all put back together. It does have some scratches on the top some, but here is a pic of the same model i just got. I really am happy, as i like to watch a movie say like meet the fockers, and like to watch them again and again, sometimes for a week or 2, and so i like having the ability to keep the ones i want to watch the most all in a player ready for viewing

Good find, had nothing worth mentioning since before Xmas at charity shops but on the plus side, many of the UK Cash Converters and Cash Generators have been inundated with PS3 and 360 so are now doing decent games at about £2 and crap like old Fifa and Starter Disc for 10p so it's worth those for the cases.

Wish I could find stuff like this. There are tons of people in my area that are ebay resellers and that is their only job. the game market is strange here too. Wii U games only sell for around 20 new and anything above that is ignored. The market is so bad here that most people just sell it online. Can't tell you how many times I got something off ebay to just drive 10 min to go pick it up.
