Used Gear Online

So I've been looking around, and I've found a few websites that deal in used gear. The most professional looking website being https://www.keh.com/ however they seem to be geared more towards still photography. What does the community think about ebay for used gear?

I've been buying from eBay for almost 10 years now, and I've had no real issues with anything I've bought or sold on eBay.

To be safe I ALWAYS use PayPal for payment, and will refuse any other kind of financial transaction. PayPal pretty much guarantees that your money is safe.

I also ONLY buy gear after inspecting high resolution photos of the gear I am buying, to be certain I know what the physical condition is like before I buy.

I buy from eBay all the time. You can get some killer deals on there that you won't find elsewhere. Guy's advice is spot on. Also, I beware of buying internationally because if there is a problem with the gear, it's much more costly/difficult to return overseas.

Consider also Amazon - they have vendors that sell used gear. Both Amazon and Ebay now allow 6-month financing too on certain purchases, and probably if your credit is sound, etc.
