    Is EBAY really worth it????

    I would never buy **** off of ebay and have it sent to me. I mean, to save a few bucks, you would risk getting screwed and buying jacked up equipment, or having it fugged up in shipment??? Ive seen several threads today ALONE that have been about screwed up purchases and shipments via EBAY.....man screw that!!

    Sellers have feedback...
    Good feedback = person to buy from
    Bad feedback = do not buy from person

    Just because its Ebay doesnt mean its going to be cheap. Some of those smuckers are slick with there listing.. But Overall for me ebay is the way to go most of the time.

    Always Ebay and nothing else. You realize that on ebay you can get BNIB items with full manufacturer's warranty... I don't buy from private sellers and I've never been screwed..... Actually nevermind I have....

    it's feedback from people who have bought from them. i don't think a couple hundred people would lie to screw you. also what is the point to this thread?

    What is the point of any thread.........it was just an observation. The answers I have gotten have cleared alot up for me. I guess only the failed purchases and shipments get posted. There seems to be alot of success with EBAY.

    Thanks all..............

    I've found things on Ebay that I couldn't have found anywhere else, for any price...

    You have an equal chance of getting screwed on or off Ebay, just like any other online service...

    Research is the key to successful Ebaying. Alot of people get BS negs and you need to read the negs they get and see if they responded to them. I so far have had great experiences on Ebay.

    ebay fcking rocks for some ****..if your careful. I pick up so many Cd's from ebay. Its surprising how much more music you buy when its $5-10 shipped per disc compared with $18.99 @ some B&M. To bad the record companies wont change their B&M pricing.
