What is Graded?

Product Grading (Condition)

What is graded stock?

Our products are not considered ‘Brand New’ products, they are considered Graded products. A product can become classed as Graded in several ways. Most big guys out there, John Lewis, Tesco, Curry’s and so on all offer 30-day return policies. This can be anything from an unwanted gift, a change of mind from the customer or even the wrong colour of an item. Once the product has been opened from its original packaging, the sellers are no longer able to resell the item as brand new. This is where we come in.

Whilst the products are Graded, essentially its often a brand new item in fantastic condition, simply returned as unwanted and picked up by ourselves for resale. This means that we can bring you a great product at a great price, saving you a huge amount of money in the process! With almost 30 years of experience dealing in Graded products, we’re confident you will be delighted. For that reason, we offer you a 14 day no quibble returns policy and Free Five Years Guarantee on all items purchased from us. All products are technically tested, processed, repackaged and offered for sale. Before sale, all items undergo a comprehensive quality control process by our engineers. In most cases the item will be supplied with its original packaging.  If the original packaging is not supplied we will supply other secure packaging to keep the item well protected in transit. All items sold at DC Digital TV carry either a free 5 year or 12 month ‘return to base’ warranty provided by ourselves (unless otherwise stated). Our guarantee on all our products demonstrates our confidence in each product we sell. This really is an amazing way to save hundreds off “Brand New” prices without sacrificing any of the quality or performance!
