That's a good question...
I do the same thing you do...if I really want something I sit and wait till the last 15 seconds to place my bid...it's then that I'll sneak in for the kill. I always bid a tad higher than I really want to pay because at this point there are no second chances. I have been pretty lucky and come out ahead most of the time. There have been a few things that I know I have lost to with the sniping websights out there. The only benefit of using a websight like that is piece of mind when it comes to bidding...you don't have to sit around and wait with your heart pounding and all waiting to pounce on the auction....they also charge you usually a monthly fee to use the service.....
I like my method...I figure if I don't win it, it wasn't meant to be..... it's all about being patient and knowing there is always going to be another opportunity to bid on something similar on Ebay.
