I haven't read through all 6 pages here, but my main gripe with Discogs is the use of generic photos. On more than one instance, I have purchased records that buyers have mis-listed as being different pressings than they actually were. Some have arrived over-graded, but I have had an equal amount of Discogs purchases arrive in better-than-advertised condition. I don't buy high-dollar records, so the experience has been ok overall. Aside from missing the "thrill of the hunt" aspect, buying online saves the hassle of hunting through record bins and thrift shops on my limited free time these days.
