How to price a monitor I want to sell?

My son bought a new Gaming monitor and gave me his 35 inch ultra wide monitor. I keep wanting to squeeze the screen physically and decided to get rid of it and its ultra wideness.

The question is: how do I price it for resale?

I looked and can't find it elsewhere new or old for comparison.

Acer 35" Ultra-Wide WFHD Adaptive Sync Adjustable Stand - CB351C bmidphzx

Thank you!

This 32" VA monitor has better resolution at 2560x1440 for $280: here. You could try asking $180 for yours and see how much interest you have.

I would price it based off the panel specs and find similar panels for sale in your area. Acer has pretty bad brand resale value and most monitors use the same panels off the same manufacturers.

For something like that I would start at 250 and go down from there.

This is not ultrawide comparaison thought.

I would ask how much he paid for it. According to camel it was 400$ new. First available December 2017 so almost 3 years old if he bought at release. On newegg reviews says it was bought for 200, i guess usd so covert to cad is 250$. The 1080p doesn’t help much resale value but being ultrawide help a little but it’s not curved. I would guess 150-200 if you can even find someone interested. Honestly I wouldn’t bother and just keep it to use somewhere else.

Set a price, wait for replies, then lower the price if nobody bites. Repeat until you find a buyer or the price goes lower than what you're comfortable with, in which case you're stuck with it.

Anything 1080p will be a really tough sell as 1440p+ and high refresh rate are all the rage now. Doesn't help that it's Acer, not IPS, and has no outstanding features apart from being ultrawide, which itself is a niche market. You may need to relist it a few times and it might take a very long time before you find anyone interested in it, depends how desperate you are to sell.

$150-200 sounds realistic.

M1K3Z0R is right. 1440p is priced good right now. you will have a hard time selling 1080p ultrawide at a good price.

But you never know... Kijiji it. I bet some person would love to try ultrawide at a reasonable price.

If it were me, I would price it $150 to get rid of it fast and not have to think about it anymore.
Maybe you can get $200 if you have patience. Just remember that the value depreciates the longer you have it.

When checking places like Kijiji for reference, remember that the prices you see are from ads that didn't sell, so ask for less.

Wow, i should start selling my older monitors. I have so many Dell 24 ips screens at home. I figured if I could get $75 each that would be fine.
