Commitment to High Quality

Parallax's goal is to produce the highest quality electronic product, with consideration to the newest manufacturing processes, the best material, and with a warranty they will gladly back at any time.

Manufacturing costs will never cause them to make hasty decisions and release a product that’s anywhere short of their highest production ability.

It’s common for Parallax to service products that are over 20 years old!
