I'm looking for a good deal on a decent but inexpensive roaster. Something like the I-Roast or FreshRoast seems like a good option. Hopefully, someone has one collecting dust.

Thanks for looking.

Have you looked into a Whirley Pop? I've been getting great results from it so far.

I just went through this decision making process myself and I went with the Brehmor 1600
Though I am a tinkerer I didn't want to deal with the smoke generated by a modified popcorn popper.
The I-Roast and Freshroast though appealing in price, didn't sway me because I think I will get better, more consistent results using a drum than forced air.  Also, the Brehmor seems to get more consistent good reviews.
I am not particularly interested in darker roasts, and the new drum design seems to get rid of any worries in using peaberries or smaller beans.
I'm sure they are all great products, ultimately it comes down to user input, but because I like the drum roasting concept better I know I would have eventually gotten this anyway, so I decided to save my pennies and go with what I would have ended up with anyway.

+1 Start with a popper and move up to a Behmor.  Used they can be found fairly cheap.

Thanks for the input. I have tried the air popper method and had good results but I'm always curious and interested in trying a dedicated roaster now. Anybody ready to let one go?

I haven't used my Freshroast 8 in quite a while and it works perfectly fine. I'd rather sell it than just sit on it forever. If we can figure out a way to make it worth the shipping costs, we can make a deal.

You still interested in parting with the FR8? Going to try the popper first, but may be interested in the Fr8.
