    Ipod touch - does engraving reduce value??

    I have a 2G ipod touch which I had engraved with one word. I'm now wanting to sell it to get money for an iphone.

    Is an engraved one less valuable? Would it bother a buyer or do you reckon most people put an ipod touch in a case and therefore won't mind?

    Its otherwise in perfect condition.

    Surely it depends a lot on what it actually says? Somethings wouldn't bother me at all. But it may cause a few problems for me if it had another womens name on it, lol.

    In short, yes i think it will effect the value, as some people won't like what it says, so won't want to buy it

    They'd obviously prefer it without the engraving,so therefore less valuable,depends what the word is also

    It only has nememene on it. That wouldn't mean anything to other people so perhaps wouldnt bother them too much?

    Well at least my username is original then.

    I suppose if it said "Happy Bar Mitzvah" there could be a market for it. But "Happy Martyrdom" may be a little less appealing!

    yes it is :thumbsup: but if it was a more common name inscribed on it, such as mine or chris etc perhaps it might not be as bad & you might possibly sell it a bit more easier.

    why did u get it engraved anyway?

    dont people get things engraved to keep forever, and also did u not have a cover on your ipod therefore making engraving pointless?

    At the time I wasnt planning on selling it - and it was free - and I like free stuff....

    Also invisible shield covers are see-through so not entirely pointless.
