Buying from someone who is ignorant and thinks tape is tape-
The upshot: likely to be cheap. The downside is you are truly buying blindly and totally rolling the dice. As noted above-this can be very grating and disappointing.
Buying from someone who knows what they are talking about:
Not likely to be cheap, unless sold as such (i.e. junk tape). You are less likely to 'score' or 'pull one over' on someone who knows tape.
The plus here though is you are all but assured of getting exactly what was offered-meaning you aren't likely to be disappointed.
Choose your battles wisely.
