When putting a pricetag on used electronic goods, are there any factors that need to be considered other than depreciation? If there aren't, how are electronic items that have been used for a period of time valued for the second hand market, taking only depreciation into consideration? Is the drop in value for the period of time the item is used consistent for every year the item is in use, and if so what is the percentage for electronic items in relation to the value on the original pricetag? In short I would like to know if there is such a thing as a depreciation formula that is applicable.

Hi Needful, you mean that the rate of depreciation varies with the brand? That sure makes sense and I had not thought of it that way. Thanks for responding!
It does. An Apple iPad does no depreciate that much when compared to the nearest specs Android device. Probably the reason why we still have iPad 2's selling in stores. This happens all the time with high ticket items like dslr's and the like.
