• How we rate our gear

    Unlike a lot of other places, we own professional testing equipment & tools to accurately test everything we offer. It's the only way we can ensure everything we offer is fully functional and adheres to our high standards.

    While technical details are nice, not everyone is familiar with all the technicalities like us nerds and repair technicians 🤓. We decided to adopt a scale from 1 through 5 to describe condition of an item as accurately as possible.

    This 5-point scale is used to determine the condition in three different areas: mechanical, optical & cosmetic. Together with the provided image of each item, this should give you a clear idea of the items condition.
