    Hi Bill

    I don't use them.

    Simply open two browsers.  One looks at the time left in the auction, which you keep refreshing, thus guaranteeing you are good to eBay time.  The other has your snipe bid ready at the 'confirm your bid' stage.  When the first window says its time to bid (like 2-4 seconds before the auction is set to close) launch your bid in the second window.

    Its free.  Gotta love that.  And its accurate.

    Never, ever bid during the 'middle' of the auction.  Firstly it only drives your snipe bid higher and secondly because you never want to alert your competition in on the fact that there is a desirable item in play.  Swoop in at the end up with your one and only winning bid.

    And yes, we have veered way off topic.

    Off topic, but any opinion on snipe bots/software?
