    Question help needed! right price for intuos3?

    Im looking for a really quick answer from someone with knowhow about wacoms:
    I can buy a used wacom intuos3 A4 (used for 2 years, not much though and in good condition with complete box, pen and mouse) for 185 Euro's. Is this a good deal or do I pay too much?

    thx in advance for ur quick advice!

    185 Euro is about $245.00? Right, think so.

    I sold my 6.5 x 11 Intuos3 for $200.00 and felt that was a fair price to sell at when comparing to what I had seen similar sizes and products go for.

    So looking at the size A4 9x12 and price of $245.00 american dollars the price seems decent enough as long as it's in good condition.

    Could maybe find a better price, but from what I've seen Wacoms seem to have a decent re-sell value that might make finding a cheaper one a bit harder to find.

    So-so price, don't forget you still need to get a new overlay since if it's been used for 2 years it must be pretty scratched. On eBay I saw some new Intuos3 for €200 or maybe it a bit less, they were leftover stock from a Wacom reseller.

    thanks for ur advice guys! I still have bought it; only now for 175 euros. I already have it here and this is my first quickie with it. Expect to see a real sketchbook from me soon!

    bdw, intuos looks good. There are some marks that it has been used, like a worn place on the side of the mouse, where the tumb has been, and some dust. But overall it works great for me! (this is my first tablet).

    $245.00 for 9x12 is about $100 bucks less than what you'll find on Ebay. You got a good deal.
