The products in this category are divided into two types, used and demo. The type is listed at the end of the product’s name.
Demo – Optics Trade has used the product for testing purposes only. Check the product’s description to find out what condition it is in. Generally, demo products are in mint or excellent condition.
Check the product’s description to learn about its condition, signs of use, package contents, and return policy.
We use a scale from 1 to 10 to refer to the condition of the product’s exterior. This scale is not used to label the product’s performance – all the devices in this category perform as good as the new products. The condition is listed in the product’s description.
The product shows no signs of use. Often, the products marked as Mint are discontinued products that have not been used, demo products, or products with an open box.
The product shows minimal signs of use. Often, the products marked as Excellent are demo products or products with an open box.
A mount with minimal signs of use
The product shows signs of use such as scratches or small dents on the housing. The operation of the device is not affected. Sometimes, a part that is not essential for the use of the device is missing, such as an objective lens cover, or a turret cap. Check the description of the product for more details.
Highly visible signs of use on the housing
The product shows signs of heavy use – there are either big scratches, dents, or other types of deformations on the housing of the device. The operation of the device is not affected. Check the description of the product for more details.
Products that we mark with numbers 1–3 are discarded. We never sell these in the Used category – the functionality of these devices is often impaired to the extent that they cannot be used.
The package contents are always listed in the product’s description and can be observed in the added pictures – what you see is what you get. When the original box is missing, we either pack the device and the supplied accessories in another box of the same manufacturer or in a standard cardboard box (check the description of the product for more details).
