"100 + (Level2×1.5) + (GameTime×15), rounded down to a multiplier of 50"
You buy back if there is a team fight going on and you can tp in.
You buy back when you know you can farm back the money in the time you would have spent dead.

Buy back to discourage pushes if you know you being alive can help stop them, or to help pushes your team couldn't otherwise do (ie if there is a fight that leaves your team with 3 dead and the enemy team with 4 dead, but the last one is an anti-pusher like Lina, Timbersaw, etc, you'll probably need more than 2 heroes to get anything done in time).
I don't suggest buying back for farming purposes unless it's really early in the game AND you have a lot of ward coverage and safety assurances. A gank by the enemy team on you after a buyback with that intent can put you seriously behind.
Saving it for an opportune moment that may arise is far wiser most times, imo.

keep your finger over the buy back button trying to decide if you should buyback
when you accidentally misclick buy back with 6 seconds left till you respawn causing you to lose the game next time when your gold and buyback are needed, that's the universe's way of telling you its time to buyback
