That one was up for at least about a day. I saw it on Sunday and considered getting it, it was a good price considering usual prices for SS7 boards these days. Ended up deciding against it since I already have enough SS7 boards for what I would want to use them for. Still kept an eye on it, as I was curious how fast it would sell. Saw it finally sold the next day, about the same time of day that I first saw the listing.
I also did search for it on Sunday. Probably a few hours before it went online.
So it was on Ebay for roughly 24 hours.
I've been watching this board since July 2021. There were no sales between April and July.
#1 (Germany): In August one finally showed up for 20€ starting bid. It came with a 500MHz K6-2, ATI graphics (worthless), noname sound card (worthless) and a Maxtor SATA controller. I saw it only hours after it was posted, because I was searching for it every day. Send a 40€ offer which got accepted.
#2 (Germany): Another one was auctioned in September for around 45€. Came with a 450MHz K6-2. Hirsch won the auction.
#3 (Germany): In October a 2MB variant was auctioned for 20,50€. But it was broken. Randomly froze up during boot. Hirsch was the one who placed the 20€ bid. He didn't want to risk more, because we weren't sure if the issues can be fixed.
#4 (Germany): On November 29th one was auctioned for 30,50€. Came with box, but nothing else. Hirsch won the auction, but the board turned out to be broken. Turns on but no post. Fully refunded. Broken board is still in his possession. Repair attempt is planned.
#5 (Germany): On December 18th one was auctioned for 56,90€. 380MHz K6-2 included. That one also went to Hirsch.
#6 (Germany): On January 23rd an old revision (no UDMA66) was sold via buy now. Asking price was 120€. I did ask the seller if he sold it for that price or accepted a lower offer. Got no answer.
#7+#8 (Germany): On February 6th two untested ones where auctioned off for 25,75€. No extras. I won them. One turns on, but no post. The other one is fine, but I/O ports are rusty and will get replaced. Other bidders probably chickened out because the boards were untested and the seller has a bad reputation (30% negative). Lucky me! No risk, no fun!
#9 (Ukraine): On February 8th one was auctioned off for the insane price of 123,75€. No extras. With tax and shipping that would result in 170€. Auction probably went so high, because it was international. Someone in a remote location must have been really desperate.
