Shush... please don't post threads like this. Used equipment buyers might read it and get smart. The more dumb buyers there are out there, the better it is for the rest of us to dump old gear. There is very little rationality in the used market (well, the new market too). Those who are rational have a huge advantage.
And FWIW, I think you are right that used prices as percentage of new are rising. The 70% to 75% rule of thumb is a good one, but largely ignored. Ebay is probably the main contributor to that. It's always been a sellers market. But poor economy also contributes. When times are tough, people will do anything to save a buck, even if it means losing two bucks in the process.
