I have had good and bad finds on eBay. I also use the handhelds here and
there but I find their connections annoying and prone to noise. Whenever
I buy something on eBay (The ATR's also) it first gets a complete bench
overhaul. I found that this way I get better results. I have a Norelco
minicassette that was in really bad condition and now works great (well,
sort of considering the limitations of rim drive). It's always a gamble,
for sure. ;-)
