The $2000.00 6300 Class machine . . . What?

I have been asked to explain why in my previous post I said a Graphotype machine is not worth $5000.00, yet there is another machine on eBay listed for $2000.00 . . .

Yes, I agree with you there is a 6300 Class machine listed for $2000.00 on eBay. 

So the question has to be asked – is this machine priced correctly?  Well, depends upon how you look at this machine – the answer is both yes and no – read on we will explain. 

The 6300 Class machine listed for sale for $2000.00 is being offered by a Graphotype DEALER.  

Let’s look at the sellers description:

When a buyer is seeking a “turn key”, solution then the buyer should be expected to pay a premium and what is being offered here for $2000.00 is a true “turn key,” solution for someone who wants to make dog tags.

Back to the original question, is this machine worth $2000.00?  Only the buyer can determine the real value of this machine, but in our opinion you would be getting your money’s worth because of the seller, support and extras if you bought this machine.

So the answer to the question of if this 6300 Class machine is priced right at $2000.00, well . . .

The machine is priced right if you want a “turn-key,” business ready to go straight out of the box.

The machine is not priced right if you don’t need or want the value added services, accessories and “turn-key,” guarantee being offered by the seller.

Ultimately it is you the buyer that will determine if the $2000.00 price tag on this machine is too much or not.
