Hi All

Wonder if I could ask the advice of the gurus :o )

I have picked up a copy of CLIFFHANGER PILH-1007 (Muse Hi Vision
version) as part of a bulk purchase recently, and I dont have a Hi
Vision player (I wish!!) so will probably be listing this on EBay in
the coming weeks. Could I ask, does anyone know what they fetch? I have
heard varied stories but have searched and not spotted any sold
recently. I'm in the UK but will be listing it worldwide. It's in
excellent condition and is complete with outer sleeve, insert and
original slot-in cd-style inner sleeve.

Kind Regards, LJ

Hello,

3 Hi-Vision sold for $50 about 2 years ago, but it was more of a
mistake. I guess selling it below $200 would be quite a disappointment.

Especially Cliffhanger has a lot of outdoor bright scenes that shows
good results with MUSE compression (dark scenes are always a problem
for compression algorithms, less data to work with). Mountains
landscapes really render well.

Sorry LJ, but I bet that the eBay deal will fail. Both high bidders are
not newcomers to the MUSE scene and know very well that this disc is
available right away for much cheaper elsewhere, for example here:

Possibly they were lost in the GBP / USD conversion rate, sometimes
people take it the other way round. That would explain the high bid,
and "legitimize" the retraction.

Yep, you are right, it failed. And I thought it would. Well, the
highest bidder, while you say might not be a newcomer to the MUSE
scene, must be a newcomer to the EBay scene for sure, as he bid more
than he could afford, and far mor than it was worth. Why do people do
that? EBay kindly translates your bid into your local currency as you
place it.... Oh well :o ) As long as I get my $40 worth of listing and
final value fees back, all will be fine and dandy. LOL My loss was
someone else's gain, as the second highest bidder was alerted to a
cheaper option, and he's buying from elsewhere. So, hehe, we'll go for
bidder number three, and if he's not interested, Julien, you were
fourth in the list, the option may pass to you... If you are still
interested of course !!!
