nah man you can get technics for that easy.; a hint on buying them though. have a search through ebay and seek out 1200's they are alot less popular but are exactly the same as the 1210s (except colour)

for example. these 1210s mk 2.. theres only 2 hours left.,. these will more than likely gor for much more but you can grab a pair of mk2s easy.

I bought 2x technics mk3's a pioneer djm 300 mixer, sony mdrv 700 headphone and a load of random dance tunes for 355 quid. bargain.

Sweet, will have a look, my mate bought some pre-owned.

Is there anything you should look out for as a tell tell sign that they might be buggered or on their way to getting buggered? The money is from my birthday so would be a shame to waste it if that was the case?

best way to tell the age or wear of a 1210/1200 is to look at the platter. where the little knobles all the way around the edge.
if your lookin on ebay, you can only go off photos. but if you get hands on before you buy, look if the platter appears particularly warn, see if the pitch feels gritty.

he speaks the truth..

But generally if you're getting technics, they wont be buggered! Known to be built like tanks!
