I have made it a strict policy to use the Buy Now entity, no bidding. One of the reasons is more than likely you are bidding against one or even a few of the different forum members, and you end up driving the cost up most times, much more than the item is actually worth.
Well I was trying to get a like new Black and Brass 260 from mth with PS3 off the bay. The auction ended a couple days ago. I bid as high as full retail which I wasn’t super comfortable with but I wanted it and the seller had good feedback. I watched in the last minute as it first went $20 over retail, and then as I started to mull over how bad I wanted it, the auction closed at $50 over full retail + shipping. I hoped I wasn’t bidding against a forum member. Clearly someone wanted it much more than I did, I hope they enjoy it.
