With reasonable credibility on the part of the seller (pictures and verbiage
both make sense, seller rating is good, he sells test gear not comic books,
etc) these have always been expensive. I've seen auctions close for anything
between $400 and $1500. $600 is not an uncommon number to see. I've always
found it cheaper to buy stuff like the current auction at $150 to $200 than
to go for the fancier versions.

Yes you are right but, the question was what's the current price of
these.   Years ago a few were bought for $100.  Some sold as broken
were repairable.   But what does a working unit cost in 2012?   My
definition of "working" is that at a minimum the seller claims it
works.  Which implies an offer to accept a return on a DOA unit.
