Ever purchase a large ticket (over 200 bucks lets say) item over Ebay?  How was your experience?

The only large ticket purchase I've made from Ebay that I can remember was a Tournament Cyberball 2042 arcade game.  Everything went well.  The seller responded to questions quickly and even followed up a few days after delivery to make sure I received it without a problem.

I've only bought a few things on ebay over the $200 mark, but they were all good experiences... but I'm also a lot more careful to research who I'm buying those big ticket items from.

Reason I ask is that I'm thinking of picking up a BFG Geforce 6800 GT OC over Ebay as it'd be cheaper and comes with the same lifetime warranty...just hate the unknown with that much $$ floating from my hands to ?????'sville.

I've bought plenty of stuff and only had problems once (was preordering something and the guy shafted lots of people). I'd say follow the regular advice: stick with people who have a decent amount of feedback, read the fine print carefully, and pay with a method that allows you to complain if there's a problem (paypal, fr'instance). I think the chance of a problem is small, but nothing is 100% certain. Just tread carefully and I expect you'll be ok.

I just purchased a hottub on Ebay.  Total cost was $3475.  The money came from an inherritance that I recently received so I guess I was willing to gamble that it's a legit purchase more than I might have with earned money.

Ahh you just reminded me... I bought a pool table on ebay. No problem at all. Just be sure to review the seller's feedback and look for negative trends.

My brother bought a 2002 Jetta.  It's working out well for him.

I've purchased the following :

iPod Photo 60GB - not here yet, poor communication but seller is 42000+
2005FPW (dell 20.1inch 16:9 12ms LCD monitor) - awesome transaction
RazrV3 phone (back in november) - Seller was new, but she delivered the phone. I'd say she lied on the add (as it was slightly used) but I overlooked it as I love the phone.
