    Maybe a little more than an outdated product if you spend a bit of effort. The one they replace it with could go to offset the costs of a new Band in the market. Something to consider anyway.
    I don't want to beat the horse any dead-er than it already is (forgive me Nate)...but for anyone who's morbidly curious...

    New Bands are selling at Amazon for about $125. IIRC Amazon takes 10% from Marketplace listings which means third-party sellers are netting about $112 on them. If one were listed for say $120 or so they could easily underprice the competition, sell in 1-2 days, and walk away with $100. My advice to anyone who gets theirs replaced in the next few weeks is to go that route, though it's a bit of a wild card after the announcement next week. HOWEVER, it's important to remember that Band 2 "is not supposed" to ship until November, which gives Band 1 sellers a bit of time before the price drops well below $100 for good.

    What MS probably should have done is announce that they will offer Band 1 users $50 off if they trade up from a Band 1 to Band 2, regardless of condition. That way they get a product off the street that isn't holding up well, while thanking early adopters for their help in shaping this new category into a viable new line of business.
    Jazmac and 920Walker like this.

    I might go for that if they did it.

    Now, when would they announce such a thing? Probably when Band 2 itself become official - meaning it's not in the past tense yet.
