Summary

  • Watch out for HTC Vive prices on the Le Bon Coin website

For many French people, the free classifieds site Le Bon Coin has become a reflex to buy used or new products. The number of announcements is very important and there are many HTC Vive headsets there. Many ads dating from a few days to several weeks offer HTC Vive VR headsets at a second-hand price now higher than the price of new. Caution is therefore required before purchasing on the Le Bon Coin site.



Watch out for HTC Vive prices on the Le Bon Coin website

Yesterday, HTC announced that its new virtual reality headset, the HTC Vive Pro, is available for pre-order for April deliveries. The Taiwanese manufacturer took advantage of this announcement to significantly lower the price of its predecessor, the HTC Vive. The headset, which for a long time was the benchmark in virtual reality, was sold new at a price of 899 euros was reduced from 200 euros to 699 euros. Excellent news ... except perhaps for those who sell their VR headset bought at a high price.

Result, many classified ads on the Le Bon Coin site now offer the used HTC Vive at a price higher than new, without the Viveport subscription offer or warranty as new. Caution should therefore be exercised if you are tempted to buy a used HTC Vive. No doubt the lower price should encourage you to buy new or it is better to wait until the HTC Vive Pro is in the bins to buy a used HTC Vive at a low price.
