Both of the ones I linked are from the same seller....

Anyway, things to look out for with ebay lights:
-Condition of the glass: just like your US lights the glass gets pitted over time. Pitted glass = worse performance.
-Condition of the reflector: The (silver?) on the reflector is easily damaged by moisture. When it flakes off it exposes the browish metal underneath. Avoid these fixtures, unless you're picking them up for spare parts.
