I remember a 5-6 years ago more than one Canopus Pure3D (V1 and V2 models) showed up on ebay for I think ~$80-$100 each, sealed in box. At the time I was like "ehh... they must not be that rare if there are that many on here for this price. I don't need to spend $100 right now..." ... then they were gone, and within a year, every Canopus branded product for PC was inexplicably selling for three to five times as much as identical products from other brands.
I see now that a bare Pure3D with no cable sold for $300 recently. Durrr.... 🤪
I listed one of those v1's in 2015 for $100... because I had bought it a while before that at a thrift for under $10, so it felt like ruthless profiteering even then. 😉
(If I was actually prescient, I would've put the income into nvidia stock then.)
