I am not new to this board, but completely forgot my username, pwd, even reg email etc, so have registered a new account.
Anyway, I am an amateur PI user, obviously looking to expand on this. All I use my PI for is to enable my TV to access the web etc at the moment.
The company I work for recently bought in a load of customer return PI (Maplin kits). Some of the PI's were obviously faulty, so they were going to dispose of them!! Sacrilege, I thought (nothing to do with maybe making a few quid of course....).
So, I have 20 faulty PI 512 Model B's for sale.
The faults range from the good ol' snapped off Capacitors, Un-responsive HDMi ports (video ports not even tested!), Un-responsive USB Ports, one which - when plugged in - gets very hot close to the micro power-in socket, slightly damaged SD card holders and a couple with Graphics Faults (when booting, the text is very large, and then the boot freezes)?
I also have 2 brand new SD card readers and around 5 brand new capacitors to throw in, along with 10 original Element 14 PI boxes.
On top of this, there are also a load of accessories to throw in, such as a few of the twin USB UK (in the wall) plugs, HDMi leads, UK Keyboards, USB - Micro USB cables (power leads), 4 port USB Hubs - with 5V UK Power Adapters, a couple of 4GB SD cards, USB Mice... See below for summary.
There may be more, but it is all taking up valuable space and I know that a lot of you would put it to great use (again, nothing to do with the money ) so this lot is advertised here, and here only. If no-one wants this at a sensible price by next Sunday, it will be going on eBay. Though, I would much rather it all went to you guys and was put to good, inventive use.
So, I'm open to offers on all of this in one lot - or would split, but would prefer to let it all go in one hit.
- 20 x Model B 512mb Raspberry PI's (various faults, though over half boot)
- 2 x Transcend (Class 6) 4GB SD cards (I think with Wheezy installed)
- 5 x Twin USB Wall Plugs
- 3 x HDMi Cables
- 7 x 5v Power Adapters (for multi-USB hubs - or whatever)
- 2 x USB - Micro USB Cables (I think i nicked one for my phone )
- 8 x USB Optical Mice
- 2 x 4 Port USB Hubs
- 7 x Boxed UK USB Keyboards
- 10 x Element 14 PI Boxes (for Model B's)
- 2 x New SD Card Readers
- 4 x New Capacitors
Please either message your offers, or post below - in an auction style I guess? In the interests of fairness though, any in-boxed offers will be posted, also with users id to avoid accusations of me shill bidding - so it would probably be best to just post your offers below.
I will start it off at £100? does this seem fair (a very low price)? I WILL sell here for this amount if this is all that I am offered.
I would just put a price on this, but I can't value it so will leave that to you - the experts.
Viewing in Bognor Regis more than welcome. Good luck!
P.S. I do hope that these do sell here, as I am sure that they would be put to better use by this forums users - at the enthusiasts portal - than anywhere else. I know that I would make more money on eBay etc, but it truly is not about the money, but is simply to enable inventors to invent.
Pics below (took me ages to set up, and is going to take me ages to put it all away again. Perfect Sunday morning activity!)
