If it were a reputable company then yes I would. But something like eBay, heck no. Place like Best Buy, Comp USA and such, are the places I would. But since I have these stores in my town, I would rather just walk in and buy. This way I can actually see the item, and not worry about paying the shipping cost.

I buy often on the web. Both online stores and ebay. For esample, right now I'm upgrading my PC. I bought on ebay a DVD burner and RAM and I am going to buy a new HD and an UPS. My next purchase will be a digital camera.

I haven't bought any of those things but I do hope to buy a digital camera soon. I believe they usually put insurance on those types of products or would replace it if the product was delievered damaged. I would just double check the sites policy on damaged goods and insurance.

I've bought a couple things online - my computer, for example. It's a Toshiba M400 tablet that I bought through my school online, never having used on before, but I did a heck of a lot of research on it first. (In case you're wondering, it's way more expensive than it's worth, but I got it anyway.) I've also bought a couple books off Amazon. Other than that, I've only gotten a couple little things. Most of the things I spend money on online are internet-type things - memberships and such.

Just be careful where you buy it. Normally good places and sellers will pack it nicely and it will get to you. I got a digital camera a few months ago and it arrived very nice. We use it still. Normally a good seller has a return policy and Ebay has a help center for such things. I do not hesitate to buy anything online if the seller is decent.
