you call that a low reserve price [Nov. 15th, 2010|11:08 am]

I'm keeping an eye out for a type of flash for my digital SLR (an Olympus FL-50, in case you were curious. Not the FL-50R, that goes with a different type of camera, not my Olympus E-500). There were a couple on ebay I was stalking, one with minor issues that went for more than I was willing to pay, the other marked "low reserve price". Buy It Now was $300, not a horrible price, but I'm looking for a deal. I toss a $100 bid at it, was outbid and reserve price not met. Tossed $103 at it, the max I was willing to throw without knowing if reserve was met. It wasn't, I moved on. 

The auction ended with the bid at $146, and reserve price was not yet met. Where the hell is this low reserve price? Maybe it's just me, but low reserve doesn't mean 2/3 of the value or more. Hope you enjoy keeping your flash, dude. No one got it on this round, despite your "low reserve price". 

I keep watch on other flash auctions, because at some point I can snag that flash for under $200 if I'm quick enough. Better than the $350-400 that it goes for new.
