I'm frequently interested in gear that I can't examine in a local shop
before the sale.  So I purchase online from a merchant that allows a
return within a limited time period.  For example, B&H Photo Video and
Trew Audio have a 5 day return policy.  Cascade Media allows a week.
Sweetwater and Guitar Center let you evaluate your purchase for about
2 weeks.

All companies have restrictions in their return policy.  For example,
no vendor I'm aware of will accept the return of a microphone
(presumably for health reasons).

If you're ordering for evaluation, be sure to check with the vendor
about their current policy.  Sometimes the company's web pages are not

Evaluating products in this way is not free.  You have to pay for
shipping both ways, and sometimes you have to pay a restocking fee.
In my case, the expense is worthwhile because it gives me hands-on
experience with gear that I can't see locally.
