I paid £75 plus postage for mine from ebay, about a year and a half ago (I think)

Wow that was cheap spiny! I would have expected around £200 for one in good condition.

Heh. I must keep missing out on the "killer" deals some of you run into - or maybe
its because of the different market over here stateside?

Anyway, I paid approx. $400.00 for mine a few years ago, and it didn't even come
assembled - I had to put it together! :)

Yeah, I'll concede that point. But considering I'd never even seen anything but pictures
of a STacy at the time, well...life was interesting for a few days. :lol:

I just checked http://www.myatari.com and see that a reconditioned Stacy 4 is going for $650 US. Extra $100 if you want a larger HD!

and I think Best Electronics charges even higher than that (something like $799-899.00).

Hmm there's a big difference between what somebody 'charges' and what it actually sells for.

The answer to the question, regardless of what the item is, is it is worth as much as a person is prepared to pay.
The collection:

Atari 260ST, 520ST, 520ST+, 520STfm
Atari STe
Atari Falcon, 14MB, 40GB IDE drive

exactly. there were other bidders on the ebay auction where I got mine, so I guess at that point in time, they were worth £75 :)
