Anyone gotten a salvage or used lot of memory, hard drives or cpu's from anyone on Liquidation.com? I am wondering if it would be worth it because looking at some of the prices on E-Bay even if half of the lot was dead there is still some profit in there. What do you guys think?

It depends on the seller, but for the most part salvage lots on liquidation.com are pretty much trash pickins. Avoid it. You'd be doing good if you got a lot that only 3/4 were dead. Some suppliers I've seen on there will tell in the listing that all of it was tested and is bad.

Keeping that in mind, I bought a gaylord of 10/100 3Com hubs as salvage. The listing told what was wrong with them. 99% were repairable and I sold all but 20 of them for more than 10x the cost. The remaining 20 I kept for my own use and friends/family that need one or two.

Ok, thanks for the the reply. How are the Used lots? Should those still be considered salvage almost?

I purchased one of the memory salvage lots from them. 500 pieces . I had them all tested and about 45% of them worked the rest was junk.

I sold them to a local computer repair shop for about twice what I paid for the whole lot. He had a device to test the ram. And recently told me how many of them worked. Not huge profit but I didnt have to risk my feedback rating on it. But he said the lot was still quite profitable to him even though I sold them to him as is. Im not sure but I honestly think he put them on ebay lol. Its just based on what kind of ram it is. Alot of the ones I got were untested but most were dell and kingston ram which has a good resell value.

If you sell any of them make sure they work. You can make tons on ebay if you do.

As far as purchasing from liquidation.com its a mixed bag. Many have had a good experience with them but there have been some that have purchased crap too.

They are an auction liquidation specialist and deal in over 2 million auctions a year so apparently they are doing something right.
