I have a red Zune 80 that I want to sell sooner or later to help pay for a ZuneHD 32. I just recently got it from Microsoft support as a replacement, so it's in almost perfect condition. The screen and body are completely scratchless. I also have all the original packaging and booklets/cables that come with it, if that matters (but not the premium earbuds). But, I was also wondering if the 7,000+ songs I have on it make any difference?

I was thinking about $130 - $160. Is that a fair price range?

I think that's a pretty fair price. The music however, it will depend on if the buyer likes the music you have Wink.

I have mostly metal, but an almost-full list of artists can be found here. I think there's a little bit for everyone in that list. I also forgot to mention I have a Belkin acrylic case and belt clip for it. The case has some scratching on it, though.

Wow, if I had money I would buy it. There's a lot of good music on it. In fact the music is probably worth more than the Zune itself.

Wow, thanks. I hope they beef-up the ZHD to compete with the 64 gig iTouch. All my music won't fit on 32 gigs. I have over 45 gigs of music, most of it at 320kbps, too.

Yeah I have 40GB of music all in 320kbps except the stuff I bought from iTunes store which is at 256kbps.

That's pretty good. I sold my Zune 30 for $80, and I bought it for $100 1.5 years ago from dell.

That's a fair price range IMO let it go for $150.

That is way too high.  $100 max.  Also, unless you can legally transfer those 7,000 songs to the buyer, I wouldn't use that as a "selling point".

Personally I wouldn't sell it, not yet.  I'd hold on to it, then buy the ZuneHD, and use the standard 30 day return policy to your advantage. Meaning if you don't like it return it and keep using your 80. If you do like it, then sell the 80.

The flip-side of that is when the HD is released, the 80 will be worth less than it is worth now.

There is an 80 with a bad Hard drive going for 50 right now(6 Bids)

Looks to be on range of 80-150 bucks for a used 80 on ebay. And the used one going for 150 has a bid.

Most importantly it's harddrive based. For me to buy anything with a HDD in it, it needs to be brand new and come with at least 1 years warranty. The failure rate of HDD based DAPs are too high for me to fork over anything above $100 for a used device.

i got about 160 for my black 120,which i payed 200 for. so asking for 150 is a bit much, i'd say 100 - 130 is what you'd get for it from an educated buyer.

but then there's always suckers to be found.  Tongue

i sold it on the same idea that it will probably be worth less once the new model is out, plus i have cleaned my library up and only have about 18gb of music, of which i will probably only have 11-12gb on the device at any time. so a 32gb zHD is plenty for me (until the 64 comes out) for at least a year.

I like my Sprite Easter pink.

I agree with Willy. The legality of giving all those songs to a different person let alone a complete stranger really puts you in a tricky situation. Best to be careful and not advertise that.

I sold my pristine Z80 last week to a co-worker.  I cleaned it out completely and she paid me three $50 bills.  Selling yours for $150 shouldn't be that hard.
