To be honest, they are "worth" about a tenner, but some Jag stuff goes for silly money.
The CD units can be a bit temprimental, I have owned two in the past, one was a simple fix of pulling up the spindle (got that one cheap) the second one needed a new drive unit and still never functioned properly
The games available on CD for the Jag are not that impressive.There are a few homebrew games available on CD, but they are not worth the admission fee. If you are a Jag fan then you will probably end up with one at some point.
Better option would be the Skunkboard IMO

FYI Best Electronics in the states has them NEW for $175

What a crock of shit - that is a pathetic price - hope some poor bastard doesn't buy that!
