You were lucky. Most repairs start at a higher price.sinor35 said:I actually bought a pro 96 on ebay for $150.00 It had no sound as stated in the ad. i sent it out for repair from my local RS and it only cost $20.00 to fix it. a resistor was blown. It works great.
If you're gonna save up money for the PRO-96, buy the PSR-500. Both are made by GRE, both are AMAZING scanners, both come with a 1 year warranty, but the PSR-500 comes with more features, some of which you may use now, some later. I have both. I sold one PRO-96 to buy my PSR-500, I will NOT be selling my other PRO-96 anytime soon. I got my PSR-500 brand new off eBay from Lentini Communications for $500. If you go used, you'll save $$$ on a PRO-96, but used PSR-500's for sale are few and far between. Good Luck!jleverin said:I have almost stopped looking on ebay for a pro-96. When one does come available, seems like there's a feeding frenzy with lots of bids up. I really don't enjoy fighting people over an item in an auction as I usually end up paying too much. And I'm worried I might get stuck with something that doesn't work after I paid all that money for it. Have decided to just wait until I can save the money to buy one new from the store. Really wish I had the money a few months back when they had them on sale, but just couldn't raise it. Now am hoping they'll go on sale again soon. You'd think with everything being so high, people couldn't afford to buy items like a $500.00 scanner, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
