All Used Equipment is tested and sold in working order.
The following scale is for cosmetic condition only.

N Brand new/Never used - In original manufacturer's packaging
OB Open Box with full manufacturer warranty
D Never owned - Used for demonstration purposes only
R Refurbished by the Manufacturer to original company's specifications
10 Preowned equipment, but appears as new
9+ Shows little or no signs of wear
9 Shows signs of use, but very clean
8+ Shows moderate wear or finish marks
8 Well used - may exhibit "dings" or finish marks
7 Shows considerable amount of use - More than average wear
6 Useable, but has considerable optical or mechanical imperfections. Returnable, but our 90- Day warranty policy does not apply.

The B&H Used Dept does not distinguish between "grey market" and US-warranted merchandise for any item we sell. These distinctions are primarily important for warranty purposes for new merchandise and all the merchandise sold through our used department is out of the manufacturer's warranty so in almost every case, the issue is moot.

You should be aware that while almost all the items sold through our used department no longer qualify for the original manufacturer's warranty, certain manufacturers in the US will not service goods whose original provenance was "grey market", even for a fee. In almost all cases service is available through independent repair facilities.

Every item sold through our used department comes with our own warranty. For many items we also sell additional warranty coverage. Please ask your sales associate for details.
