Take a picture of your current stem set up and you will get more valuable feedback.
As far as pricepoint, I buy from them regularly and they do have some good deals. Make sure the cables are SIS rated (for index shifting).
Sometimes on your handlebars, it's as simple as flipping the stem. Without pictures, that is just a guess.
Given the former owner is much shorter than you, and the bars are way too low, you may actually have a bike that is too small for you. Bike sizing is another science, with a lot of opinions.
