Yeah, I remember seeing that one a year ago too. That price is insane, especially for something totally untested and unknown. The only reason someone would absolutely _need_ a Prime these days would be for a source of spares for an existing machine. Of course, they could just as easily contact one of the remaining Prime resellers and get a fully working, tested, guaranteed part for a lot less.
