    Long story short, I'm looking at a couple digital backs from KEH in AS-IS condition. Just says they need battery and charger... but here's my question. Is it worth the $300 gamble? I have bought Ugly stuff and had GREAT luck, so I'm just thinking this may be a great opportunity to grab a back to use on my GX680-that is, if it turns on...

    No warranty or refunds with As-Is...............so that is a gamble if it will work or not.
    KEH grade system.....

    As above, KEH lists their policy as NO RETURNS on AS IS. products. I've always known them to be pretty much on the up and up on their descriptions, but unless you are in the area, and can actually view the product, I'd say you're tossing the dice. Before I did that I think I would check to see if I couldn't find something equal with at least a return policy, even if I had to pay more.

    I'm not sure why you're considering it. Per KEH - AS IS - " Means useable for parts only. Item may or may not work. No warranty or return privilege." Now why do you think a company who prides themselves on accurate ratings and already offers a bargain rating for working items would put anything but parts in this category?

    I'll give you my blessing to buy it under one condition: When you win this evening's lottery drawing, you split it with me.

    Deal?

    Yes. If it doesn't work, I'm not gonna try and pass it off as though it does.

    Well, they've always been conservative in their ratings. These are being offered untested without battery and charger. Worst case, I put them back on Fleabay and see what they get as a set. At least I'll be able to tell them why it doesn't work if that's the case.
