We try and grade ex demo boards to give an indication of what condition they are in. Taking detailed photos of boards is time consuming and if we miss a scratch customers can feel cheated. We grade as honestly as we can.
5/5 – unused – might have blemishes from transportation, been used as show sample
4/5 – barely used – small scratches from transportation, great condition
3/5 – used – good condition, could use a service, small scratches
2/5 – well used – might have some scrapes, minor repairs and service needed
