No way! I bought a hard drive on Ebay for $100 less than it was going for in the stores at the time. I always save a good amount of money buying on Ebay.

I bet you could have bought that harddrive on pricegrabber for the same price. It actually probably came from one of those stores and you would not have to mess around with auctions.

computer memory is the easiest thing to find online for cheap. only the lastest and greatest is anywhere near bestbuy prices.

No, or else I would have bought from there. I looked for the best deal I could get and that was Ebay.

I buy many golf clubs from EBAY. I get great deals. Got the new Taylor Made driver last week for about 200 bucks cheaper than I could get it in stores.

Yeha I've sold so much crap on there, and people actually buy it... just get a piece of crap, start it at $1, $5 shipping, and bingo you make $5 for the piece of crap you didn't even want. Of course, I buy crap on there too, so it evens out :-D

Maybe he just assumed that since golf is mainly something you do when you get old.

EBAY is awesome. I always calculate the shipping into what I want to pay for something. No problems at all. I got robbed 1 time but I got my money back on PayPal. ;-D
