Am I reading this right?

A Grade 7 vita for $120 and a grade 5 with significant scratches for $139? And then there are some other grade 7 vitas for $160.

 

Are those $120 grade 7's like a "first come first serve" kinda thing or should I be wary of them?

How low has a Vita ever been on Cowboom? Less than $100? Tempted by the $120 grade 7, but might hold off a bit.

I got my Vita for $80 in Grade 4 condition (about 3 months ago), which arrived flawless to my eyes aside from some surface scratches.

Just purchased the Grade 7 for $121 after tax! I used the $5 off for new customers coupon code. I almost went with the old 1001 model until I realized they had 1101 models and Grade 7's. Grab the Grade 7's while you can! It also came with the AC Adapter and USB cable.

I've bought systems from Cowboom before, but I was wondering if anyone has purchased laptops from them in the past? I know people say to never buy a second hand laptop but some of them are really cheap and I was wondering if anyone had any luck with them. Sorry for the somewhat off topic post.

Of course they're back in stock now.  I finally broke down and bought one for $109 on ebay with charger and 4gb memory card.   Pretty much flawless so I'm happy - but man I would loved to have spent my BB gift cards instead of real money ^_^

Unless it recently changed, you can't spend BB gift cards on cowboom.

Has anyone gotten a memory card with their Vita? I just ordered a grade 7 with everything, including the owner's manual, so I think there's a good chance it'll come with a 4GB card unless they always take it out.

I'd like to see what a grade 7 Vita looks like. I've been real tempted to purchase one but I'm still holding out.

I bought one of there netbooks when they ran through a cheap firesale. The only thing i was confused about was that for some reason, the touchpad was not plugged in. So i had to take it off and plug it in. But it was like new, no scratchs. I have bought a White vita for cheap as well with 5. It came like new as well. I have never had  problem with cowboom you should be ok.

They usually state it if it does come with the 4GB card.  Hopefully, you'll get one.  But it's still a good deal if you don't.  4GB is too small anyway, and you'll quickly want the 32GB or higher.

Not all Vita Consoles came with a memory card

I finally picked up a Vita after seen that the 7s have been available for the last couple of days for $119.  I wasn't planning on getting one, but I have all these awesome free games from Plus.  And there is always the PS4 two years from now when Sony releases the Slim model.  The Vita can be used for remote play then, but it's battery will probably be dead by then.  Has anyone here in the US purchased one of those 64 GB card from Japan on Ebay?  Did you gave any problems receiving the item, and was it OEM?

Any idea why some of the Grade 7's are 119.99 and some are 160.99?

I asked the same question. And what doesn't make sense either is that grade 5 and 6's that have scratches and what not are priced the same instead of a bit lower.
 

Also, if the vita is missing essential things like a charger, they really should charge less as well. Why should I pay the same as a complete console if I'm missing a charger? And theyre getting stingy with the pics. ALL their consoles should have pics so we can see what we're buying >_>

But yeah enough of my ranting, Vita DOTD prease?

Damn. And I thought the Wii U I bought at a pawn shop was a good deal!

I may have to go the Cowboom route for a Vita someday. Ebay was not a smart choice...

It doesn't make any sense. The pictures they do take often have bad lighting, so you can't tell if the device has any scratches. When I checked, most of the Vitas did not have any pictures, but I bought a grade 7 anyway because it came with everything. Most people here have said that their grade 5 or even grade 4 consoles were in "like new" condition.

With all the great deals on Vita, where are the deals on the memory?

That's what kept me away from buying a Vita for a long time. Hopefully they go on sale again. Otherwise I'll be using a 4GB for a while.

CowBoom is just making this up as they go along.  It's used to be just grade 4 and 5.  Then all of the sudden I started seen grade 6 and 7 the last few weeks (I just bought a grade 7 one yesterda), and now I'm hearing there is a grade 8 now.  Next we will see a grade 9 and 10, with 10 being brand new without tags or something rather.

 

there's a grade 8 vita for $119

Nah grade 4 and 5 have been the lower tiers for a while now.
