I have 6-8 used, and bought myself 4 new italian ones for xmas. 2x3 gallon and 2x5 gallon. The new ones are really, really nice. If the used ones are going to cost you 60, and the new ones are only 89 . . .. .and the money is not a huge issue - I would get the new ones. It is one thing if you are getting used ones for 30-40, and the new are over $100. With the price difference you are talking, I gotta say, I love my new kegs and am actually thinking about getting a couple more.
