Quality made espresso equip holds its value, and eventually can go up in value. I sold both of my Mazzer Minis for significantly more than I bought them for new. With the quality of build of the Pharos I don't see any reason for their value to go down signifivantly. Rob
Another post was up with the same grinder for 210 and I believe it sold, wonder why now I'm getting so much heat now...economy? :)
I think as others have mentioned that this product is very well-made and will last a lifetime (thanks to those who have commented), so I don't see why it should lose much value. However, something is only worth what people are willing to pay for it. Then again, I don't have to sell it, and I may just keep it for travel use.
For me, there would be added value in getting the updates that OE has been adding over time. And I suppose as retail prices go lower, we're more and more willing to pay a little extra to have the latest and greatest. You won't need to budge much to sell, demand should be pretty consistent and there are very few used ones. I think the difference between a good deal and a great deal will likely only be an additional $10-20 off. I keep toying around with the idea of one of these, so I'm thinking about it...
