I've purchased many items off eBay.  Buying cheap is fine as long as you
understand and check out the description carefully and ask questions if
things aren't clear.

There aren't many deals to be found on eBay anymore (IMNSHO anyway) for
vintage computer gear.  Test equipment is a different story.

Never buy something you want???  That would be really sad as there's not
much on eBay that one would need.

I certainly agree with setting an upper limit and sticking to it.  Good
advice for any auctions you might attend (in person or remotely.)

Just my opinion,
