I wouldn't shy away from a refurb item. I purchased a refurbed graphic tablet for my daughter a year or so ago and it'* been flawless. "Refurbished" doesn't necessarily mean an item was heavily damaged. It may have been returned because the purchaser didn't like the color, or it was incompatible with his equipment, or the cables were missing. It goes back to the factory from the supplier, they check it out and if it passes inspection, it'* release as a refurbished item. If it has major damage like a hosed power supply or a cracked screen, it'* tossed into the dumpster because it'* more costly to repair than to write it off. Every
item that'* refurbed goes through a functional check - very few items off an assembly line are ever checked.
Still, there'* something about new
I would have expected more than a 90 day warranty, though.
Hannah'* refurbed tablet had the full standard factory warranty - one year, I think.
