999.99?

I have seen this re-listed multiple times with a crazy price. Is there a reason or is it just an ambitious seller?

I got given 4 of these last year, but only took them because two were 4-bay towers.
It's a very nice,clean and complete setup but I'd still be thinking more like $10-20. People are generally glad when they're picked up because it saves a trip to the tip and paying for a CRT disposal fee.

Yeah that one's been around a bunch of times already. On the last listing the seller got all uppity when some insolent pleb dared to offer him $80(!) in the comments. I don't understand how someone can be so out of touch with reality...

Its like those sellers who try to sell P4s for >$100, four people have given me one completely free, I doubt they are worth more than $30
