Default Fair price for a raptor?

hi all,

i didnt want to post this in the b/s/t forum cuz i'm not really selling it just yet, i just wanted to check on a fair price for the hdd

its a 74GB SATA150 raptor, they are still going for about $150 new:
Newegg.com - Western Digital Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB 10,000 RPM 16MB Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM

i had it in raid w/ my other raptor, but i recently reformated and decided i only need one. its still in great condition, i had an 80mm fan blowing across them at all times w/ a thermocouple taped to the bottom of the top hdd (so it was between the 2 hdds, but on the hotter surface. it never got above 25*C so it experienced little heat stress over the past year or so. the pc hasnt even been turned on for about 2-3 months before this week.

i was thinking like $100

what would you call a fair price?

For a used Raptor? I think $100 is reasonable.
