Well done @derSammler
Your collection is quite impressive 😀

I have still my A500 and i am lucky that i have not sold it 😀
Sometimes, i am watching the auctions on eBay and i am astonished about the prices that have been increased during the last years.

Last week, i have seen an A3000 gone for >750€. Even sold as "defective" and with battery damage...

The A3000, A4000, and A4000T were always expensive and are the few Amigas whose prices don't raise (or fall) much.

I remember getting an A4000T years ago for cheap, tried to do something useful with it, but simply couldn't see why I should keep it. The size vs. usefulness ratio was just bad. Of course, you can stick in all sort of expansion parts, but in the end, it doesn't matter much if you just play games on it. Eventually, I put it on ebay for 1€ starting bid and was surprised that it sold for 5x as much as I paid for it myself. 😁

That was an A4000T made by Commodore, not by ESCOM. Only 200 of these were made, hence they catch crazy prices. For that price, you could get at least 5 ESCOM ones.

Also, it had some very nice and expensive hardware inside and came with the original box.

It's still ridiculous amounts of money.
