    Slim's* CD 0097... it's been out-of-print for years and it's the only way I could get it. Hadda pay a pretty penny for it, too.

    * Not the rapper... Slim is an English singer who I think is really amazing.

    I've only bought a few things on eBay, but the best thing so far was a copy of the Giant-Size X-Men #2 (from 1975, with pencils by Neal Adams).

    I just bought a Kraftwerk poster for 99 cents off eBay. But the best thing I ever got was my BMW.

    Mac OS 8.1. It's the only thing I've ever bought on eBay. If you count local auction site Trade Me, then I'm going to have to think a bit harder - possibly Halo.

    JBL Creature II speakers or Bluetooth Apple Keyboard. I don't buy much off ebay and when I do, its usually expensive stuff for my car.

    This is hard, but an original pressing of Lucia Cifarelli's LAND OF VOLCANOES CD. The pressing after that has completely redesigned artwork and an extra track.

    I also got a ATI 9200 graphics card for my powermac G4 from ebay.

    My best thing definitely was my clarinet. I got a great deal on a used clarinet that was in great condition. But I guess my only other purchase wasn't so bad, either. It was a used GameCube with extra controllers and a few games. It was in great condition, too.

    out of curiousity, what did that run you? I am in the market for my pismo, as it were...

    as to OP, my Optoma lcd projector. Bought quite a few years ago, when I had more confidence in Ebay...got quite a good deal (saved about $500 on store-bought).

    It was about two and a half years ago, and I can't find the documentation file off hand, but if I recall, they wanted $79 plus handling. I can get that info for you, if you want. Send me a PM, and I'll see what I can find.

    One of my daughters had their favorite Barbie™ broken by one of our neighbors. I was able to find another one for only $8.

    Korg Legacy Collection brand new in the box for $200 with the MS-20 controller -- sweet. Fits perfectly under my Dell 20" monitor and with the yellow jumper cables makes me look quite the mad scientist. Plus, I twiddle with the knobs while on boring phone calls...

    Guy got it as a bonus with his $4,000 Triton keyboard and didn't want it. Sells for $599 or something regularly.
