Too bad the lowest priced seller on Ebay, Abaxo, charges ridiculous fees for shipping. He sells these for ~$50, but $20 to ship a cassette? Need it fast? 2 days shipping is $42!!

The regular auctions on Ebay look to be selling them for about 55-60 including shipping.
If you want one of the new colors, Abaxo is still probably your option, but lots of smaller sellers have the more common red color for good prices. I've bought both of my 990's from Ebay and have been very satisfied. Many are sold as OEM take-offs without retail packaging. That's ok, just make sure they specifically say that it is brand new and includes the lockring.

Good luck.

Use the "Sort by" drop-down box and set it to "Price + Shipping: lowest first", that way you get the lowest TOTAL price for the cassette.

If a seller sells the cassette for $1 with $50 shipping, he saves over $5 in final value fees over e.g. listing it for $50 with free shipping. So to get the same kind of profits with a free shipping listing, the seller would have to list at over $56 when he offers free shipping. ebay would make $5 more, you would pay $5 more. Free shipping is great for eBay's wallet. It sucks for the buyer.
