There is absolutely no benefit to bidding early. You can put in a max bid and watch the auto bid bid you up to there. But that gives others the knowledge that you have a proxy bid in and can continue to bid you up and out. If you want to bid $2000 and it's at $500, your bid doesn't come in forcing the other guy to bump his bid if you wait till the end. Most of these auctions have a "Bid Watch" feature that once you log in you can put an item on Bid watch and notify you before the auction ends. Many of these "Auto Extend" option where the auction extends if there is a bidding at the end.
