I recently bought some games, some HDMI cables, and a piece of entry-level recording gear. I've gotten some weirder stuff over the years, especially retro gaming gear.

I just bought a Coin Set for the Presidential $1 coins from 2007-2010's Abraham Lincoln with spaces for next year's coins. So my question, have you ever bought anything off ebay?

Not yet. Kind of weary about purchasing like, REAL STUFF off the Internets.
Purchasing digitally distributed content I'm fine with. I can pay for it and have it right away.
But buying real stuff I think lends itself more to me potentially getting screwed over and that ain't cool. Or whatever.
I'll probably give it a whirl eventually.

Nah. I'm too paranoid they'll send me something broken.

Sadly, the only things I've ever purchased through Ebay are a couple of D&D figurines. Single 4 lyfe

I buy weird stuff I know I can't find anywhere else. 
 
Sega Saturn USB controllers for SSF4 and cheap game soundtracks for instance.

The first thing I ever bought on eBay was in May of 2003; I bought a copy of Metal Gear for the NES.

A few old games and i bought a monitor off there once, always had good luck with sellers. I used to buy gun mags off there before they disallowed them to be sold on ebay.

The day I got my credit card, eBay was first stop. I've bought everything from wigs to games, sweaters to comics, nyQuil, twinkies, vanilla coke... whatever I find a good offer on really! I love it! haven't been there for a few months though

In the past, yes, but I'm not too enthusiastic when it comes to using paypal. Not wild on how they store your data for so long.

Never sites like that, Amazon and sites that deal with things in the same way are completely fine though.

I bought the original iphone to use on tmobile from eBay.  That was the only thing though.  Amazon is where all my shopping is done.

I bought a bogner alchemist in new condition for a little more than half the price it was selling at new. It also came with a really nice cover that apperently only sells on ebay (had to look the name up, D2F covers) , which I ended up buying for my other amps.

Only one thing: Ocarina of Time. I'd buy more stuff, but I don't want to dick around with cashier's checks or Paypal or crap like that.

I bought a few things. I usually use Ebay as a last resort though. I like having a warranty on my stuff.

Yep, lots of stuff. Tshirts, 2 SLR cameras, comics, Demon Souls (before the US/EU date) and a bundle which had a dreamcast with 30 games. You just have to be weary of the seller, if they have at least 99% positive feedback then you should be fine.
