The cost of shipping makes ebay pricing irrelevent.
I saw some unbelievable prices for Epson printers for
example, but by the time you ship it, pay GST on import,
and get a power converter from 240V 50Hz to 120V 60 Hz
you might as well buy locally. You also get a useable
warranty if you buy locally.
