How do you decide to buy a book or ebook?

Recently I’ve read a number of articles and posts by authors, cover designers, book publishers which, when taken together, suggest readers only buy ebooks/books with great covers, readers only buy ebooks/books because the sample content is great and could care less about how the cover looks, readers only buy books/ebooks because of great reviews, readers seldom buy books/ebooks based only upon reviews, readers never buy cheaper ebooks, readers mostly buy cheap ebooks.

With all the contrary advice being bandied about I thought a place where readers themselves can quickly voice their book/ebook purchasing decisions would be a good start to adding some clarity amidst all the confusion.
