I prefer local pickup, especially for bulky items that will cost a
significant amount to ship. I'm always willing to meet in a public place of
the seller's choice (and, when selling, would be willing to meet somewhere
close to me) to avoid shipping.
If the seller won't agree to this, I won't buy from them unless it's a
really good deal. I won't spend more than $100 on any computer gear I get
from ebay (closer to $50 is my comfort level) and if shipping is going to
put the price above this level, I'll wait until the next one comes along
(and another one will always come along).
Just my opinion.
