It's only as reliable as the person you buy from - and I know that no
one's ever been burned by a dealer, Chris. The reality today is that
most used equipment is moving through Ebay or similar sites. Why would
anyone be crazy enough to "trade in" used equipment - which means give
it a way in exchange for a monetary 'thank you,' or sell it to a dealer
for far less than it's ultimately going to sell for?

And we all know how 100% reliable Ebay is. :)
