A great GREAT service if you buy things on eBay. This is especially so if you want to bid when you can't be online to do it or the time the auction closes is when you'd rather be asleep. Very cheap to upgrade to more features for more reliability. I don't think I've ever found that it was down and they have at least one mirror site server as well. Of course you won't win every time unless your bid is ridiculously high so if you really REALLY want to get something put in a really high high bid.
