    That would depend on what kind of price the seller pegs his 2nd hand item ?

    A 2nd hand set is used before... but a grey set can be brand new. A grey set is a parallel imported set... and does not have local warranty, but normally has shop warranty from the shop you buy from.

    So, a 2nd hand grey set is a parallel imported set that has been used.
