About Us

Southern Advantage is not your typical electronics company. What do we mean when we say that?

Well, anyone can offer the latest and greatest gadgets on the market, but how many specialize in rare and discontinued products? How many can offer you those hard-to-find products in brand new, gently used or fully-refurbished condition? How many are willing to offer you a full warranty on those items to give you the peace of mind you deserve?

That’s what sets Southern Advantage apart from any other electronics company in the world. We specialize in stocking and repairing discontinued formats like S-VHS/VHS, 8mm, Hi8, Digital 8, Betamax and so much more.

Since 1996, we’ve worked tirelessly to establish the appropriate connections and relationships with an intricate network of vendors, distributors and resources that ultimately allows us access to a large array of discontinued, hard-to-find products that you won’t find anywhere else.

Sure, you may find a rare electronics unit here or there on auction sites, advertising forums or user-based online marketplaces. However, those items are generally sold by individuals, as-is, heavily used, un-tested and with no guarantee. At Southern Advantage, we offer those same rare products in a condition you will not find anywhere else on the market, all capped with top-notch customer service.

We acquire most of our brand new, factory-sealed items through military, government or corporate surplus auctions. These are units that were once purchased with the intent for government or corporate use, but ultimately were never touched or opened. If the box comes to us factory sealed, we leave it that way.

For any items that we sell as used or fully-refurbished, we run these products through multiple rounds and several hours of meticulous and comprehensive diagnostics testing to ensure the unit is in top-notch working condition. We are extremely confident in the products we offer to you, and we back up that confidence by offering you a full warranty.

Our commitment isn’t only to the quality of our products, but also to the service of our customers. From the chair of the CEO to the customer service representatives, from our highly trained technicians to the employees in our warehouse and everywhere in between, we all have one goal in common here at Southern Advantage; to take care of you.

We care so much about providing our customers with a personable and pleasant experience that we don’t use any automated phone or chat systems. We take every single phone call and message personally by an actual human, the way it should be.
