used turbo's

i found this website http://www.spooledmotorsports.com/ and i was wondering if it was a good idea to look into a used turbo, i can see the disadvantages. i.e.: someone beatin on it, or it being unreliable. but i was just wonderin if it was something to look into, or just spend a good amount more and buy a new kit?

Looks like they have some nice intercoolers tho. Might have to pick one up from them.
