Very legal. In .nl you can end up paying lots of money to customs if it isn't
clear that 1) the hardware is used (second hand) and 2) it´s for a private
person (non-commercial entity) and 3) not bought. Other dutchies on these
lists might know more about this. But it's still thoughtful to mention that
customs might become an issue and that the donor and the person donated to
should think about this when shipping stuff abroad.
The fewer surprises, the better, I always say :)
