I own / owned 2 VMC's. I sold one for $2,000, 12 years ago, and I still own the other. I don't use the other VMC. It's my backup, which I have never had to use as a backup. I do think that price might be a little too high for an epilator that can no longer be serviced. If it works well for a long while, then it is worth $2,000. It was always a reliable epilator, if that helps to know.
