I've conducted scads of transactions on ebay and have yet to encounter a
serious problem. I've also sold two items and had good luck with the
buyers. The feedback system really helps buyers and sellers keep tabs on
who's worth buying from or selling to. To keep me on topic, my latest
cool acquisition (on ebay) was a low serial number C128B. Although, I
paid _way_ too much money for it, I didn't have one yet and it looks
cool. /:)
