Look again: Buy refurbs and save big
Types of refurbished products:
- Refurbished - The unit was determined to be defective and given a complete overhaul to fix the problem.
- Scratch-and-Dent - These products will have slight variations on the exterior appearance, but they should function fine.
- Open Box - You'll find these in the corner of a brick and mortar store often missing remotes and manuals. These are usually returns or floor models, the latter taking heaps of abuse at the hands of customers.
Still not sure? Keep in mind that refurbished products have usually been looked at and tested more closely than the original units that ship. Just make sure that the return and warranty policy policies are favorable before you purchase. GottaBeMobile has many more tips on getting the best deal on refurbished products.
