We are Santa Barbara's best destination to sell all new + old media and video gaming products!
We have to see what we are buying! Would you blindly buy a used computer or a cell phone without at least seeing the condition of what you were buying? Make sense? OK! Plus, the value of your stuff goes up or down from week to week, so all offers we make are good for 24 hours only!
The Control Lab not only provides the best value on video game trade-ins, offering store credit or cash for your classic systems & games - we also are a full service and diagnostic provider for all systems. Simply stop by our store and we will test and give you the best trade in value on your retro games and consoles.
