Shipping & Returns
The Laboratory gives you 30 days from the shipping date or pickup date to return most products.
All returned items must be in the original packaging complete with all components including the warranty card and owner’s manual and show no signs of wear, use, or abuse; otherwise the return will either be refused or subject to a restocking fee of up to 20% at the discretion of The Laboratory. Refunds are made for product value only, excluding shipping and handling charges. Any returns being shipped back to The Laboratory must have a Return Authorization (RA) number printed on the address label. You must call or email us to get an RA number.

Software and DVDs may be returned for credit only if they are in their original, sealed packaging.
