Default The Evolution of Snowboard Tech (aka, the dangers of Ebay)

Hopefully this is my last new thread for a while, but I'm looking for advice on buying a new board, and the plentiful array of used boards out there is tempting to me. So the question... How much has snowboard tech changed in the last 4, 5, 7 years? Am I better off spending my money on a "cheaper" new lower-end board on a decent end of season sale, or getting a mid-to-high end board used from 4 or 5 years ago? Other than changing tech and obvious damage to a board from use, what are the downsides to a used board?

i might not be opposed to buying something used that's like a year old. maybe that dude is just real impulsive, bought a set, rode it a couple times and bought something else

but 4 or 5 year old equipment? i'll pass
