If you want to buy 100 DIMMS or 21 μPs, none of which is going to be the genuine product, nor have a manufacturer's warranty to protect your purchase, and wait forever to receive them, go for it.

No, but I do have experience buying from China.

Unless you are a brand name company, in your own right, and have a plant rep in China to insure QC, expect buying to be a crap shoot, and very problematic.

Just to clarify....

When making bulk purchases from China, you have to accept that there WILL be a certain percentage of DOA components in what you receive. From the Chinese perspective, you are paying very little for the purchase, so you should expect this as a normal cost of doing business in this way.

Should you have an unacceptable level of DOA components, you will find yourself in one of three situations:

1.) Tough s#it. You are on your own. Better luck next time.

2.) You get to pay for shipping of the DOA units back to China for evaluation and warranty (if one even exists) replacement. Shipping FROM China is dirt-cheap. Shipping TO China, on the other hand, often exceeds the cost of your total original purchase--including what you paid for shipping from China to you.

3.) Some organizations will state that they will replace DOA items--at no cost to you--upon receipt of PROOF of the defect causing the DOA condition...often stated as "photograph of the defect". Think of how you can render photographic PROOF of RAM or μP failure that will be sufficiently convincing to an organization that is motivated to discount such proof. In all honesty, it just can't be done.

My experience has shown me that, in extreme cases, you may get anywhere from a 50% to 10% good unit yield from such purchases; leaving you to ask yourself if the calculated price per good unit is an equitable return on your investment of time and money.

Your odds of getting "enough" good units for your needs obviously increase as you increase the unit quantity of your order; but, do you really want to buy 3- or 4-hundred of something to get just 1- or 2-hundred good units to work with?

And that's before you even consider the actual performance specs of the "good" units you receive.

If you want to get your hands on functioning used components, have you considered contacting the various e-waste recyclers in your area?

Many do offer "system-pulled" components for quite a good price.

Thanks for your all honest tips, any suggestion on which online store I buy from?
Is Amazon & ebay much more reliable for what I’m looking for?

Not really. I minimize my purchasing of used components, and generally restrict the few purchases I've made to people with whom I negotiate in meatspace. I'm told that, with only one eye, and an imposing physical presence, I have an advantage in dealing with people face to face. I can't figure out why, though.

My brother does buy on eBay, and CraigsList, but he has been burned more than once. It is his opinion that eBay has mechanisms in place that make such purchases a bit safer.

YMMV
