Just curious, what's the advantage of buying a reader from you versus using SonyStyle, Amazon, Borders or other retailers who won't charge an extra transaction fee, have free shipping with insurance included and accept returns?

Is this reader new or used?

Don't you think you've set the price a little high, Jon? Sony are selling the 505 for $299.99, and Adorama, who ship internationally, are selling it for $279.99:

http://www.adorama.com/SORDBBL.html

There seems little reason to buy from you at $350 when one can buy from Adorama for $70 less, I'm sure you'll agree!

Best of luck with your sale.

"Win the ability"? Is PRS-505 so scarce that people need to compete and pay extra money to get it?

This is for people overseas who cannot get a 505 easily.

Yes, you can get a 505 there if they had any in stock.

You certainly could this morning, when I posted my message. I'm sure they'll be back in stock in a day or two. But why are you charging $50 more than Sony's list price?

Absolutely. Jon is of course free to ask whatever he wishes. I was just thinking, though, that he'll stand a lot better chance of successfully selling it if he's asking a similar price to what other sources are charging. As you so rightly say, though, it is indeed a free market .

I'm surprised you're selling it. I thought you were rather in love with it, actually.

I'm not selling it. What I plan on doing is purchasing a 505 for one lucky person from the Sony Style Store. The price is actually not all that much more then what the price I have to pay. And certainly less then most on eBay are charging. I have to pay the price of the 505 plus tax plus the time and effort to actually do this plus the time and effort to go to the store and do this. And I'm not charging some arbitrary amount of shipping that will be more then the actual shipping. So overall, I think it's fair.

That's good! For a moment there, I was worried about you, Jon.

Thanks!

I'm not doing this to make money. Just to mainly be nice to one lucky person not in the USA and to recoop my costs. Also I did forget to mention, I'll probably have to pay for packing for this as the only box I have suitable for shipping a 505 is being used when my 500 goes out.
