Hey everyone! I wanted to get everyone's opinion on buying a new vs used accessport. I tried looking up a thread like this but couldn't find one. I know that buying a good, used, unmarried ap would save a lot of money. I would be spending more money getting a new one. The only problem with not knowing who you are buying the used ap from is that it may not be unmarried properly or buttons may not work. I have a deal to buy a used one for $390. What do you all think? Should I buy used or new? I would love all input! Thanks

I bought mine used and while I'm having a voltage issue the Cobb works perfectly. Anything used is always a gamble but if you can find a used 1 local to you you can check it out and test it. If it works fine go used

Well this guy I want to buy from is not local but the price is very good. He posted here on NASIOC but also put it up on eBay. Do you think I should buy from him or wait and buy new?

If it all checks out good I say get it. I know you're taking a gamble but for me I was looking for a used one as a new one was a little much $ wise. Hopefully it all works out for you.

I grabbed mine used. If you have any issues with it, just contact cobb and send it in for repairs.

I grabbed a used one, but got to test it and marry it to my car in person, so that's different. Talk to the person on the phone to get a better feel for who you are dealing with. At the end of the day, you kind of have to trust the seller that you're not buying an expensive paper weight.
