    Buying new / sealed Photoshop off ebay?

    I'm curious if anyone here has ever bought new "factory sealed" software off Ebay?

    I want to pick up the new Photoshop release (CS4) and there's plenty of copies claiming to be new and factory sealed in box available on Ebay for rather good prices ($350-400 instead of $600) for the Full "non-extended" version. Meaning it doesn't have the 3D poly mapped object import extensions that the $1000 CS4 Extended handles, which I don't need anyway. I just want the updated standard features for digital drawing/painting and occasional photo manipulations for my websites. I'm curious if anyone here has ever ordered rather pricey software such as Photoshop off Ebay?

    While I'm at it, I may as well ask, is anyone here using the new Photoshop CS4 that just came out recently? I'm currently using Photoshop7 from 2000 or so. CS4 does say it's supported under XP-64bit so it's "supposed" to work well on my machine according to Adobe and specifically make use of all the RAM I stuck in this thing. I've heard rumors that pen tablets are trickier (but not impossible) to get setup in CS3 but supposedly this was fixed with CS4...true? After I got the pen tablet I never wanna have to use a brick (mouse) to draw or make image masks again!

    I've always gotten my $ back when I used Paypal. Luckily for me only 3 out of 600 or so purchases/sales have ever been bad but $60 was the most I've ever had to collect from a delinquent seller. Did you use Paypal?

    Where did you guys order it from? Direct from Adobe themselves?

    yeah she orders it from Adobe itself.....they have an early introduction price right now that saved a bit...not sure if you can upgrade from 7......

    forget how she paid, just remember it was CS she got ripped off on.....looked legit when it got here but the registration key was no good and couldnt get one that was.......you asked for experience and this is mine.....i wont do it again......

    Cool, glad you filled me in cos that was what I was worried about. They'd have a receipt showing they shipped me... something! So they can prove they shipped me ... something! My other bad deals on Ebay all were "never shipped" items I never even got empty boxes so I basically had to get reimbursed. Guess I'll justsave my milk money for a few more weeks and order direct or get it at a softwareshop downtown. lol!

    Do you guys use a Wacom tablet?

    i believe that was the problem my wife ran into....they shipped "sealed from the factory software" and we couldnt return the same cause we had opened it of course or some damn loophole like that in their favor.....
