Graded from Robert Whyte
i do find it incredible how quickly the price of HDD/DVDR is dropping.
And if you missed it in special offers £699 MR brand new.
What exactly does the graded mean? Scratched, bits missing etc?
Graded means that it has been previously sold and returned. Even if the goods are perfect they can't be resold as new. If they were reported as faulty they will be inspected, fixed, repacked and a standard manufacturers warranty issued with the graded unit. Plenty of people on these forums have bought graded goods - projectors and tvs - and have been more than satisfied with the quality and price. They won't be scratched or have bits missing; if they were you'd be entitled to return them.
...and of course plenty of retailers sell new stuff as graded so as not to upset other retailers and the manufacturer for selling under RRP.
(Not saying that this is the case here, but it is common).
