Question Laser Value

Now that the focus is coming out - what do you think will happen to the value of the laser? i know that its been a reliable product for 21 years but now that there is a replacement, will the price drop dramatically on 2nd hand sales??

If you were looking to buy a second hand laser you would hope so.

No matter what values will drop. But the Laser has served us well.

I doubt that it'll drop much more than it would via normal depreciation. If it follows the Festiva trend, the fact that it's a run-out model will have no affect on it's market value.
