It’s mainly 18 TB Toshiba HDDs according to the seller. Assuming it were only 18 TB HDDs, the 700 TB translates to 38,88888888888889 drives. Given the Toshiba drives are usually on sale for like $250 / 250 Euro, the HDDs alone are worth $9722 / 9722 Euro. Calculating with $300 / 300 Euro per HDD, the value of the HDDs is $11666 / 11666 Euro. Not the worst price.
still that means you are buying 700 TB farm + 2 plotters for something like 20% less than the price it costs new: not exactly a steal, but can’t fault the seller for trying. I’m sure many of them will be open to a realistic offer
Well, it was a tick more profitable when listed, but absolutely. If there are any NEETs out there that don’t like working, coins/mining (farming) was enough to buy a new pair of sweatpants, some Cheetos, and a couple games on Steam. It’s a little tougher now but if mom’s paying the power bill…
The price is very good. You also have good reviews on ebay so that’s nice. I would say, don’t change the price (or even increase it a bit) and wait a buyer to come around. Unless you need the cash right now.
I’m more curious about your reasons for selling, could you expand on that ?
It’s really hard to say. Chia farmers are looking for cheap mostly. I also don’t think I would sell it as one big package, bit of a hard sell. And the stuff like the plotting hardware and cases is popular stuff you can sell to anyone, not just to other Chia farmers.
Also I don’t think the description is all that clear .
“Mostly 18TB Toshiba” How many, and which type? I also see a bunch of external USB drives in the photo’s?
For price, I would start by looking at what new currently costs.
Right now, I can buy Toshiba 18TB enterprise drives (MG09) for 270,- Euro a piece. That is just the current online retail price here in Holland, not special deal or anything.
So If I buy 39 of those I have 702 TB, costing 10.530 Euro, which is brand new with full warranty.
