I love your website. It is very easy to navigate and informative. I just ordered my Nikon camera and I am very excited to start using it once it arrives. I have been checking prices and yours was the best! I glad I found you.

Abe’s of Maine is an electronics retailer that sells new, factory-fresh and refurbished products, including cameras and photography accessories, TVs, home appliances, speakers and other audio equipment and more. The company carries a variety of brand names online and in-store; it’s important to note, however, that it’s not authorized by several brands, meaning your products might not come with warranties.

Abe’s of Maine’s products

According to its website, Abe’s of Maine’s bargain-hunts for electronics. While some of its inventory is new, much of it’s factory-refurbished. When browsing its website, make sure you read the descriptions carefully so you know the condition of the product and whether or not it’s warrantied.

I hope this lens works with my son's camera. This is the 2nd time I've tried to purchase it from your store. The first time, I received an order confirmation and then the next morning an order cancellation. When I called to ask what happened, I was told the lens was out of stock and that I would get an email when they were back in stock. I just happened to be checking and saw that the website again says it's in stock but I never received an email notification. I hope the purchase goes through and the lens is shipped successfully.

    I have been waiting for a long time to order the Fujifilm X-T4, and when I saw it was available and for $1,350 I could not resist any more. I first saw it on my phone and was thinking to wait till I get to computer to check it out, but your site was so fast and had everything I need it to know about the camera and the ordering process. I honestly don't think it can be any better than this, I cant wait to receive it. :) Thank you so much.

    I purchased the Canon RF24-70L Lens from Abe's because it was $300 less than B&H. There were a few details I needed to decide on my purchase and I could not find them at Abe's; namely the size in mm of the front lens (used to purchase a polarizing filter) and whether the product came with a lens hood. To find the size of the front lens, I went to B&H and looked it up. For the lens hood, there was a picture with the hood on the product, but no "product comes with..." section. I'm taking a chance that the hood comes with the product. As a first time user of Abe's, I may have missed these details somewhere, but I did look. In the end the difference in price will be worth it, but they could have made a sale on the filter if I could have found the lens diameter on their site.

    I was in the market for a full frame camera upgrade, as I currently had the original Canon EOS 6D. After weighing my options between the new 6D Mark II and its fancy articulating screen, or just upgrading to the more pricey 5D Mark IV, I happened upon the Abe's of Maine website and saw that they were offering the Canon 5D Mark IV as part of a sale and a full $200 below market price. I could not resist the offer, so I purchased the 5D Mark IV.

    Canon EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS II USM lens. Quick and easy at fair price. Very competitive with Amazon and Ebay. Happy to be able to purchase something from another business than Amazon. Keep up the good work and can't wait to get my new lens. This sale was very fortunate for me to have found. I think too often one tends to go directly to amazon or Ebay thinking that's going to be the best price. Glad to know Abe's proved this not to be case. I am rather amateur in digital photography. It is a comfort to know that I will have a low cost solution to all my photographic needs. Hope the lens arrive soon. Thanks, Carl

    The website is easy to use looking for and at products. The checkout process was quick and easy. After reviewing several cameras I found the one I wanted in stock. Many other stores don’t seem to have the inventory that Abe’s has.

    I discovered your store online while doing a price check. You had the item I have been researching for $400 lower than another famous east coast online camera retailer. I do love those folks, but $400 can't be ignored. The camera hasn't arrived yet, so assuming it's truly new and not gray market, I am super pleased.

    Great online system with great prices with option for the people we can’t buy devices in full payment and that very good credit card option with them and now I could get my new Sony 6400 to film in 4k to my clients. Thanks.
