You can see particular specifications for the product by clicking on the Specifications tab.

Clicking on the Reviews tab will allow you to see reviews from other MrBuyGuy customers.

How does MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection work?

MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection allows buyers and sellers to dispute the outcomes of the auctions.  For example, if you are the buyer, and the seller fails to deliver the goods, you can place a dispute, which will act as a forum between the buyer and the seller.  MrBuyGuy generally stays out of disputes but will use the dispute centre as evidence when deciding whether to take action  on a member.  When you submit a dispute,  the other party will be notified and asked to respond. For example , if the seller does not send an item, the seller will be notified and asked why the item has not been sent.  If fhe seller repeatedly fails to send items purchased, MrBuyGuy will suspend the seller. 

MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection is designed to help buyers and sellers solve any problems they might have in a small number of steps.  Buyers and sellers the option to contact MrBuyGuy.   If a resolution cannot be made between buyer and seller, MrBuyGuy will takes an active role to ensure the dispute is resolved.
