Acquiring new gear can be an expensive venture. There comes a time when either you need to upgrade your equipment or you need to expand on your current inventory. Buying brand new can help give peace of mind, and warranties are a good reassurance that if something goes wrong, it will be covered. Buying Used equipment can help keep the pocketbook full, but can also leave you open to buying equipment that’s at the end of it’s life or otherwise defective. When looking for new equipment, do you only buy brand new, or do you go for used? What are your experiences with either?

I only buy new
I’ll buy Used or Refurbished, but only from a reputable source
