Somehow I missed your previous link...Sorry!
Buying used can be a doubled edged sword. The odds are increased that you'll get a sour deal when buying used, especially online. You don't have the benefit of inspection or test performance when buying used online, and you most certainly aren't granted any type of warranty.
That said, if
all goes well, you can also score a hellava good deal when buying used just about anywhere!
