    eBay - Still good for a bargain

    Got one of these: Samsung S27B370HS 27 inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Gloss Black (1920 x 1080 Full HD, 2ms, HDMI/VGA): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories as a factory refurb for £129 this week. It arrived yesterday and is in pristine condition and works perfectly. Very impressed.
    It's almost as good as the £20 Wii I bagged for the kids last year
    Anyone else managed to grab something good off eBay recently?

    Just brought kids 9" dual screen DVD players for the car trip to south of France on Monday, listed for £179 on various sites.

    Brought grade a stock off ebay for £98 inc nwd delivery, it's like brand new.

    I buy all my odds and ends off there, still best prices, although I use Amazon a lot too just as good prices.

    Just not iPhone chargers...

    I don't buy electronics off EBay although I do buy dressmaking and craft supplies and have never had an issue - my most recent favourite purchase was 10m of Olive Green Taffeta for a gown I'm making for £28!!! This is £2.80 a metre - I couldn't get it that cheap elsewhere and whilst it is Polyester, it is still good fabric and excellent to work with. I always buy my large fabric quantities on EBay. I did also buy a REALLY cheap ballgown from China and when it arrived I was really impressed by the quality - I expected to have to finish it properly but for £33 I couldn't buy the fabric for that but actually, apart from a bit of hem facing and a decent press it is perfect. Well worth the money.

    I love ebay! Last month, bought a Nintendo 64 in mint condition, original boxing and all the cables - £5.

    Sold as spares or repair as it "didn't show any picture" - bought an Expansion Pak module for £15 (N64s needed a module that went underneath the lid at the front to 'complete' the circuit, else nothing would happen after powering up.) and it now works like a dream. Considering a typical mint condition N64 with the same description goes for around £200 starting, I'd say a saving of £180 isn't too shabby!

    Always look at the spares/repair section if you're looking to buy TVs/PCs/Laptops/Consoles etc, 9/10 they'll be going for an absolute bargain for such an easy fix! The same applies to joblots, it's more than likely that only one of the batch has been tested and they've just assumed the rest are faulty. As always though with anything like this it's down to chance/luck

    I buy a lot on eBay now, over the years anything from a tape measure to a car (bidded blind, picked up 3 days later), caravan, tools, clothes.
