The B-stock category contains products that cannot be sold as new any more. Sometimes the packaging has been opened or damaged, and some of the products may have light cosmetic damage. In other cases, B-stock products can be missing a few accessories, or have simply been returned by customers. All B-stock items have been tested thoroughly to ensure that they are in working condition.
Specific information about the condition of B-stock products can be found at the top of the Specifications section on the product page. Sometimes, additional information is found in the Tips section. In most cases, a picture of the actual product is included for inspection. All B-stock items have been tested thoroughly to ensure that they are in working condition. Most of these products come with a limited warranty.
Choosing a B-stock item instead of a new product can save you some serious money. Some B-stock products show traces of use, as their packaging might have been opened by customers before being returned. Others show signs of transport damage. B-stock items are never new, but always fully operational; all of our B-stock products have been tested to ensure that.
Carefully read the product information for a B-stock product, and you'll know exactly what you're buying. In case of specific damage, such as a sizeable scratch or heavily damaged packaging, a picture of the current state of the product is sometimes included right after the regular product images.
Please note that the main product information and images refer to the original (new) product. Sometimes a product description might mention an accessory, such as a cable, a remote control, or some software, that isn't included with the B-stock model. The B-stock information will indicate any missing items, so always be sure to read it carefully.
