If you are a "kid" then a fiver is about a fair price; if you're an adult, then give it to him for free... that's how I look at it.

Play nice now. We dont want to get the FE involved. £5 would be fine. Say what does he want to give you for it and take it from there.

You can buy a brand new one for less than a tenner - be generous and donate it...:-)

It's what I do with similar used equipment.

trade him,

"buy me a spindle of disks and ya can have it"

Or if he's a good friend let him have it.

I can buy a brand new DVD Rom for £10. So if you really want something for it I would accept a fiver.

Alternatively, I have 3 DVD Rom drives sitting in a box that you can have for nothing. (maybe just the postage?).

Can you give a link to show Maplin selling them at £30?

27.99 and upwards. Maplin is never that good value for components I find. Great for advice and some bits however.

Criminal prices, especially when you think you can buy a DVD rewriter for less than that...:-)
