If you look at the seller (+17,000 reps), it is clear he is a dealer. There are few, if any deals from such dealers on eBay. In the US, it usually boils down to avoiding sales tax vs. paying shipping. The auction price is often equal too or even greater than the off-the shelf price from a non-eBay dealer.

The only deals I have seen on eBay are from individuals and very small-time dealers who don't know something's value before listing it. Example, I recently bought something on eBay with Buy it Now from a UK dealer. It was a smooth transaction, but his next listing for another lot of the same material was 10X what I paid. I am happy, and I am sure he is happy too. I did give him good rep. ;)

The seller is Rapid Electronics - one of the UKs largest suppliers of electronics via Mail Order - they also use Ebay as an outlet.

Totally 100% legitimate and an honest trader. I've had some real bargains from them on Ebay - picked up a grands worth of components for £50 on one auction.

I've spent many thousands of £££ with them in the past - both on Ebay and through their mail order - had a couple of glitches but nothing that wasn't resolved promptly.

A bit of a cheek advertising your e-bay shop like that.
