I use this website for purchasing used textbooks and find that it usually had better choice than pricing than other similar websites such as Amazon.com. The services are very reliable but then again that depends on the sellers. I would like to see more information on the book such as the editions and year better organized. I have recommended to many people and would definitely use it again.

Half.com does connect you with individual sellers. The pricing does depend on what they set; you can score a lot of good deals, or you can get mediocre ones. The default shipping is media mail, which isn't very fast, and can be unreliable. I've lost 3 packages by media mail (admittedly out of dozens shipped and received). You can upgrade to priority mail with some sellers, which is faster, but I've lost one package that way too. Half.com doesn't reimburse sellers enough for them to put insurance on packages. It's a bit of a roll of the dice, sometimes.

Half.com is one of the best places on the net to look for bargain books. The selection changes from day to day so you have to check regularly to find the book you want. They also have great customer service should you ever encounter a problem with a seller which happens occasionally. Sellers who list books for sale on Half.com are in competition with each other so it's not unusual to find a bargain. Overall, a nice shopping experience.

Half.com has been a good source of used literature and music. I have had a good overall experience in both selling an item, and purchasing and item. The customer service was excellent when I had a problem (and I've only ever had one issue in all the years I've used Half.com), and the issue was cleared up immediately.

This was my first shopping experience on half.com. My overall experience was awesome! It was fast, easy to navigate through, and even my son enjoyed shopping. We found many great items in prices that were below the expected price.

I hate spending money on books and CD's. Half.com is a great place for buying those gently used items for usually about 50% to 70% off retail value. For sellers, they could reimburse you a bit more for shipping. By the time you pay the commission and take into account the packaging, etc., you really lose money. For buyers, it's good that the shipping fee is set so sellers cannot inflate their shipping fees. I wish the inventory was larger, but otherwise, I am a big fan of Half.com.

They have great prices, but limited inventory. It's a wonderful source for getting rid of or finding those "used it once - don't need it" items. I wish they would venture into other venues - like used tapes or books on tape.

I purchase many textbooks from half com because of the great selection. If you take the time to browse you can get many deals of a lifetime.

The one time so far that I had to be issued a refund for a product was done so very efficientlly and with no hassle.

Half.com is a great place to find out of print books. I buy from them frequently, and have only had a problem once when I didn't receive the item I ordered. I contacted customer service and they immediately refunded my money. I would recommend that a potential buyer check a seller's feedback before buying from them.

I love the pricing, it is very reasonable.
The shipping and handling can be a little more than it should be.
A lot of time the seller prices the item for a small fee, then charges a higher fee for shipping.
Overall, there are so many item to choose from. It is a fun site to shop.
Thank you,More

Half.com is a great place to obtain movies, books, and textbooks for bargain prices. You can easily find the item you are searching for by entering the ISBN, author, title, actor, etc. Some of the items are used, but many are brand new! The customer service is excellent, and the shipping time is usually very good.

Half.com is difficult to rate because it is basically a venue for third parties to sell products. You can find a lot of deals from time to time, and you don't have to worry about auctions (which are hardly ever a good deal any more). You do have the risk that you're not quite sure who you're dealing with, and Half's customer service leaves much to be desired. Still, their prices are low enough to make it worth taking a chance on most things, just be careful and be sure you know exactly what you're ordering.

I have found with both buying and selling with this site that their customer service is very good. I have had no problems and find very good buys on this site. Add the bonus you get by buying through Mr. Rebates and you really have a good buy!
I highly recommend doing business with them both as a purchaser and as a seller of used books. I have been doing business with them for over 6 years.

Half.com is a great website to purchase used books at great prices. I always make sure to pay attention to the seller's rating so I don't run into any problems there. Overall, a great website with easy ordering and low prices. Shipping can be slow unless you pay for upgraded delivery. If you do need to contact customer service, it may take 24+ hours before you'll get a reply. Good deal though for low prices on used books. I've used them many times and will continue to do so.
