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 am absolutely thrilled with the prices and variety of products at this store! It's incredible how much money I can save by shopping here, without sacrificing quality or selection. Whether I'm in the market for fresh produce or household essentials, this store has it all - and at unbeatable prices. I'm constantly surprised by the new items and seasonal specials that pop up, and always walk out feeling like I got a great deal. Plus, the customer service is top-notch, with friendly staff who are always willing to help. I can't imagine shopping anywhere else now that I've discovered this amazing store!

    I was amazed by the price listed for the Sony ZV-E10. I did some research and watched reviews until I felt comfortable enough to make a purchase. The next morning I received a call by representative Adam who was very helpful and full of energy. I received my camera in a few days from NJ to MA with a tracking number. My experience went so well that I came right back to purchase a Sony 35mm FE f1.8 lens.

    First order from ABE's of Maine, so don't have history. Setting up account and ordering was very easy, for an old dodger like me. I have enjoyed photography for many years and have done some bird photography. I am upgrading my equipment especially for bird photography (not finished with the upgrade) but find Abe's easy to deal with thus far and the prices seem more than fair. My plan is to acquire a good telephoto lens, so I am salivating for a Nikon D500 SLR and it seems like Abe's has just what I am looking for.

    I just ordered an item and the review seemed to be required in a popup after my order. I am not sure how to review as this is my first time using Abe's of Maine and have just ordered, and not received my item as of yet. The ordering process was pretty straightforward, and I didn't have any technical issues with the website, but that's all I can say at this point. The item I ordered says it's new and is at quite a discount, so I can only hope that it's just like the lens I test-drove recently. :) Can't wait to get it!

    Great pricing on the camera but the accessories seemed slightly higher when compared to other retailers. Checkout was quick and simple and in addition I was able to qualify for zero interest financing. If the accessories had been lower cost I would have purchased all of them from Abe's of Maine. When I was more active in photography years ago - Abe's of Maine was one of my 3 go to choices which is why I picked them for my major camera purchase.

    I've been comparing prices and weighing my options for a few weeks, this sale was extremely good! I've purchased from Abe's before and so it's a store that I trust for my camera equipment. The web interface has improved over time and the suggested accessories were spot on.

    Didn’t catch the order #, I have no idea when to expect the lens. Very vague on information on shipping! Sure to take the money! This part of the process is frustrating! Takes your information, but doesn’t give you any!

    Best price I could find for this camera A7r V. Ordered with overnight air so hopefully it arrives fast. This is my first order from ABES and hope all goes smooth and I will be a return customer. Fingers crossed.

    I had a wonderful experience buying a camera lens from Abe's of Maine. I was able to get a new lens from them cheaper than the refurbished one I bought online. I found checking out to be quick and easy with many different payment options, including promotional financing.

    The site was fairly organized and easy to navigate and the price for my purchase was fabulous. I wish I could filter the camera lenses that only fit the Sony A7 IV camera I was shopping for. Otherwise an excellent experience. I was not able to locate the used equipment department.
