lately, i find myself addicted with ebay...i shop til i almost drop! LOL! kidding aside, i am into auction and check new items with a lower price compared to shopping malls. one thing that i don't like on ebay, some items shown on pictures where a lot different from actual item when it finally arrived at your doorstep. sad thing, the item is already paid and your expectations doesn't met. does anybody here experienced that before too? what did you do then?

I have been pretty addicted to ebay myself lately. i keep spending all the money i'm making online buying stuff online lol but it's cheaper then buying from a store. i got a $30 shirt for $3 with free shipping. its awesome. black with wings and skull. the current style i guess lol but ebay is awesome. i haven't had any problems yet (knock on wood) i buy from people who have lots of feedback but i know even thats not always good enough.. just gotta hope you get what you paid for or should i say get more. hehe

good for you sameroad...actually, my friend advised me to buy only on powerseller, they say they are trusted sellers already because of their earn feedbacks, however the bad experienced i had was with a new seller,maybe that was the reason, if only my friend had told me beforehand, i would have avoided that.

I frequent ebay as well. It is a bit of a gamble, but I have been fairly fortunate in my experiences. I usually go in knowing exactally what I want to get, but it is a bummer when a week later it breaks and you can't return it. I got a cell phone and it was great, but when it broke I was out of luck since I couldn't return it to the cell phone company. I guess that's why you get stuff for cheaper there.

oh sorry to hear that..i was disappointed too when i bought a wallet on ebay, it really looks great on pictures, so i have to bid higher so i could win...and to my surprise, the wallet that i had long waited for two working days for shipping, is not worth it...really different from its attractive photo...what would i do, but have to accept it with disappointment!
