Why are used Gameboy colors so cheap?

I noticed that, while new sealed ones are 200+ dollars, a good quality used one is only around 30. Why is that? I would have thought that they would be pretty expensive even if they were used. I kind of want to buy one cause I was dumb and got rid of my old stuff, but I'm thrown off by their cheap prices.

I kind of want to buy one cause I was dumb and got rid of my old stuff, but I'm thrown off by their cheap prices. Is there a catch??
Update: Thanks guys!
I decided to purchase not one, but two. Gonna gift one to a nephew. Shame it is the games that are expensive!
