When selecting a service to buy on WebmasterSun or other webmaster marketplaces, will you always choose the one that is the cheapest? Or, do you factor in other things such as the seller's user level, previous recommendations/reviews, response time, etc?

No matter what you are buying, DO NOT just look at price. Many times you will sacrifice quality of a product or service to get a cheaper price.

No matter what you are buying, here or anywhere, always look at more than just price! ;)

I would have to agree with ulterios, price should not be the deciding factor. Though, guess it depends on what your buying. Hard to say, question is too vague.

Hosting though is one thing that too many people go by the cheapest price and it ends up costing them more.

Would agree with Ron and ulterios that price alone should never be the deciding factor in selecting a web hosting provider. You may save in hard dollars upfront, but you'll probably offset that in soft dollars if that service is not stable or their support is non-existent.

No.
There are a lot of other factors that counts. Look at Apple,with this way of thinking they would have been crushed from the beggining. It depends on a lot more factors excepting price like : quality,offer,how much do i need it,if it solves a problem of mine,etc.

Of course not, quality come first, but the price gap should always be logical.

When a bad service cost $5 and a good one cost $500, i will probably go with a third option ( specially there is always a lot of competition in pretty much every niche

Like people already told you. When choosing a product, NEVER go for the cheapest price. This is true in almost all aspects of life.
I forgot this simple rule and learned a valuable lesson the hard way a few years back when I bought the cheapest hosting I could put my hands on.

Ummm, I think the age-old saying sometimes applies, or more than sometimes applies, you get what you pay for. For example, my web host limits my resources, I offer to pay more for more resource allocation, but they won't help me out. I probably should have taken my own advice when I signed up with them, the web host name is: Namecheap -- the irony, oh the irony.
