A simple pulse width controller like the eBay one probably isn't going to be your best bet. if your motor has a controller built into the bottom of the motor body then it's not going to work with an additional control.

I would follow Kevins advice, print out a strobe disc, check how accurate the speed is and then live with it for a while before trying to improve it. The issue you have is that all good DC motor controls will need adjusting to your chosen motor and that will mean tinkering with the circuit to +/- the speed of the feedback loop and or the current sensing resistor.

Well, great advice everyone. Now I know what I'm aiming for, learning to build my own or a kit from somewhere. I have tried a strobe disc & it does seem pretty stable. I think paranoia sets in sometimes, because it didn't cost as much as an origin live, I automatically assume it must be rubbish. Thanks everyone.
