Can't help with second hand as I just bought a new one...here's a comparison chart which I found helpful for choosing the right model...
Maps I bought from eBay...less than half the price from OS...

After much deliberation I could get away from the fact that the 600 is 10year old discontinued model..although you can get a very good deal on it including maps at Go Outdoors...I went for 680..bought on amazon for £412..and then found a map on eBay for £35..my thinking is that this model should last for another 10 years...the maps have to be bought again anyway as OS don't do map updates, you have to buy a new set at £200...so the hardware is up to date and the software will need to be changes when there are updates every few years...I know plenty of people have the 600 and get on fine

1.50...I couldn't find the 1:25 at a decent price...however if I do decide the 1:25 are the way to go it does leave me so cash in the pot buying the other map so cheap...
