1. Buying Gear > 5. Shop Intelligently at eBay

Shop Intelligently at eBay

Although ebay.com isn’t the best place to buy all your gear, it’s a great source for certain types of gear, often at lower-than-normal prices.

No book on buying anything would be complete without mentioning eBay. One of the largest and most diverse marketplaces around (online or otherwise), eBay is a good source of a lot of electronics, including home theater components. You’ll often find slightly used or B-stock gear at killer prices that aren’t available anywhere else. With all that said, you’ll need to be just as careful with eBay (if not more so) as you are when shopping at a chain [Hack #3] .
