Around June 2001, I had gotten an online tip from a hot deals forum that Office Depot was clearing out their HP ScanJet 5200 Cse scanners for $50. At the time, they were selling on eBay for $150. I drove to my local Office Depot and bought all eight on clearance. Even the Office Depot employee thought the price was fantastic. I ended up selling them on eBay for anywhere from $100 to $150 (auction) plus $10 shipping.
