Yeah the auction thing can go either way really. It can have a strange affect on people.
Sometimes stuff will go for 99p but other times, I think people getting caught up in a bidding frenzy and don't want to be outdone. I have sold stuff second hand for more than it costs to buy new.
I bought a P90X exercise programme on here - used - for £27. Retails new for £99 with a 30 day money back guarantee. Sold it on ebay for £100 plus £10 shipping. A mate of mine too was dead chuffed he won an iphone... until the bidding mist cleared and realised he could have bought it brand new from a shop for £2 more. Madness.
I think people think that because it's ebay - it's automatically going to be cheaper than elsewhere. Not true. In my experience it's a very expensive place... whether or not you're buying or selling.
