I'm with you 100% on this one so don't feel alone. The days of quality equipment being an investment have long gone as the market has openned up. Trade-in value for mint gear is only 25-30% of the price you paid for it and that's if you get a good deal. If the gear is wanted then Ebay certainly gives the seller a better price than they would have got at a trade-in and the buyer a price which doesn't have all the overheads that a store has. Just keep your head when bidding and research what something iss really worth to you before bidding.
