I think the guys pretty much summed it. Even a 2600 stall Edge would make the stock 2600 stall RT converter look bad.

if buying a USED Edge 2800 stall, is there anything to consider?

With any used converter, reguardless of the brand, I recommend sending it back to the manufacturer to be cut and cleaned. If there is something wrong with the converter internally, it could cause alot more damage than what it would cost to have it checked out by the manufacturer first.
