The prices of used Sony readers on ebay in the UK isn't great for buyers, earlier this year I watched quite a few auctions when I was looking for a PRS 350 and the cheapest used model went for £50 (plus postage). I eventually picked up a refurbished one for that price delivered. (Of course I was still watching a couple of auctions after I'd bought mine, and one went for £35......).

You can get a refurbished 650 for £65, but when you can buy a brand new Kindle or Kobo (albeit the basic or mini versions) for around that price, it's not ideal!

I got a barely used (it had two books on, half-read) immaculate black 650 with an immaculate case for about 40 pounds equivalent with shipping and all taxes. That was an exceptional deal mind. Generally they go for about 60 pounds all in (not incl. case).

That's in Canada. I'd be surprised to see that in the UK.
