Usually if you buy from an ebay store seller the condition should be better rather than buying from some individual seller. I've never bought cameras online but I bought a few lens from Camworld on ebay, and they were in excellent condition and the price was good.

I have, everything was fine.  Try and google the seller, and if they have a rep for being shady you'll find something (most likely).

Just bought a TRV900 in perfect condition for 180 bucks this morning, great deal and it shipped already, we'll see how that goes.
