I sell all my drives when upgrading (other than the really old ones in my profile, which aren't worth selling since they will fetch almost nothing and, in the case of the Philips CDD3610 have nostalgia value - it was my first burner.
Imagine a 2X CD-RW on sale for $329 + tax (in 1998).
My brother asked me on Eeaster how many DVD burners I had owned; had. figured out that I have owned 11 DVD burners. That was before the two PX-716As.
The good thing is that I sold all 11, leaving me wiht just the two I bought yesterday.
The best part is that in most cases, due to getting in on hot deals in every instance and some (lucky) timing of the sales, it smetimes cost me nothing when upgrading (recouped the purchase price or sold it for the price of the new faster burner, bough with coupons, rebates, PriceMatches etc.).
But, I think I'll try to keep this just as a relatively casual hobby (i.e. hopefully not spending so much time that it interferes with the rest of my personal life).
