NEW 70-300 non-VR lens ($150), or used 70-300 VR lens ($400)?

Deciding on which to go with. Because I already have the 18-105mm kit lens, I'm accustomed to the VR. Also, it has the 67mm filters which I could use interchangeably on the mroe expensive xzoom lens (as opposed to the cheaper one - 62mm).

I used the non-VR zoom lens once, and didn't enjoy the fact that a lot of my images came out blurry. Now it's time to purchase, but I don't know if the VR is worth the extra investment, considering my limited budget. Hence I can only afford it used, not brand new. Whaddaya think?
