    I would think both would be similar in reliability.

    I'd have to think so. Where are you buying it from, and what kind of warranty is offered?

    While we are at it, what's the general consensus about buying used phones (say, on eBay)? Is there anything in particular to be wary of?

    Just don't buy from China. The WP8 devices sold there have firmware with limited features in order to comply with Chinese IT laws.

    just make sure that it will work on your network considering it has a bad ESN.

    Should give this a read:

    I will always buy new when it comes to electronics. Nothing beats having a warranty.
