I guess I am getting too old. I never would buy off E-Bay or CL because for the hassle I read about.
I like to go to the store, look at the merchandise, hold it, feel it, and then make a decision if the asking price is what I want to pay. No shipping cost, no shipping damage, no wait., I can take the product home as soon as I pay for it.
Problem? Most stored have a decent return policy.
I am NOT saying you are all "wrong." The above is just the way I prefer to shop.
