I've seen these and their friends on the fleabay for about $1000 in 
working condition.  It does happen, though I'd not say you can just drop 
in and BIN one any time any day.

I picked up a Ruckus/Arris ICX7650 with 40G module (so 2x 100G, 4x40G, 
24x10G, 24x1G) for $700 a few months back on the fleabay, but that was a 
somewhat unusual deal, and that platform is not without its limitations 
(especially L3), but it's a perfectly capable box.

Of course, you're buying on fleabay, but if that's compatible with your 
network operations, then why not.  It usually works fine.  Worst comes 
to worst, buy two or three for less than a new one costs, and you have 
on-hand spares.
