My frustration over the task of identifying whether Game, Gamestation, Play, GU or DodgyDeals.co.uk have the best XBOX bundle have led me to Ebay. I'm a reasonably experienced Ebayer, so I'm not asking "how do I use Ebay" or anything like that. Admittedly, most of the stuff I have bought from there has been CDs or DVDs, rather than big ticket stuff like this. I'm also aware of the various referrer scheme "scams" on Ebay and the general principle that if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Would you consider buying a console from Ebay? If so, do you think it's better to go with private individuals selling their machine second hand or with the no-name retailers? Are there any things to look out for with either type of seller? Does buying a second hand machine cause problems in terms of Gamertags (can you wipe them and put your own on)? If it's under 12 months old, will the MS warranty be transferrable? Do you need to make sure you get the original receipts? Or is Ebay best avoided completely? Without turning this into a flame war about various sellers and specific examples, what are your thoughts?
