A used nokia lumia 920 for about $140, worth it?

If it's in good condition then definitely. The 920 is still a great phone despite its age.

Nope. Not worth it at all. 

Ask yourself, if it was too good, why did the original user decided to sell it?

When my old 920 broke I was looking for a phone and I found a refurbished Lumia on eBay for $120.  It's worked well for me so far.

 

Got it from these guys: http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1439.l2754

 

This seems to be the cheapest listing, which is about the same price you're getting:

What?  So anything good is never for sale?  That makes no sense.

Again. Nobody likes to sell something really "good".

I have (for example) 105 Rolls Royces listed for sale within 100 miles of my house.  That's just an example, I'm sure it would be similar with any other "good" car (or other item).

 

Also, thinking about something good you were looking for, there are tons of flash drives (Patriot, SanDisk, etc.) for sale on eBay.  Did you buy a bad flash drive?

huh? this is completely illogical. How about people who got into debt or compulsive spenders that sell their stuff just to get something new?

Plenty of instances in which something "good" is sold. No sense to sell something when its value of retention exceeds its perceived value of sale.

This phone would still get the latest updates from Microsoft despite it's 2 years old, right? Unlike other manufactures when they ditch the updates on android devices down the road...

Yes, Microsoft support upto 18 months or lately I also heard about 36 months security update support. Though at least 18 months support is better than Android.

I'm more inclined on getting a lumia 920 NEW, $225 is a good price?
