Default Why are old Tekin RS Pro's selling for $250-300?

Why are people paying so much for used RS pro's when a used RSX will sell for half that price?

Ebay closed listings show them selling above $250. WTH?

The only answer I can come up with is "supply & demand". If you are buying it used it's probably not available new or very expensive. High demand = high price

That's the best answer I've heard. Thanks for the insight.

(sorry for not posting in electronics, not sure what I was thinking)
