Many manufacturers repair (or ‘refurbish’) used and slightly damaged electronics to “like-new” condition so they can re-sell them. This allows you to buy a high quality item at a substantially lower cost. As an added comfort, refurbished models often come with a warranty guaranteeing their performance. Check the manufacturer’s website to see if they offer refurbished electronics and to examine what their policy is regarding warranties and refunds/exchanges in case you’re dissatisfied. Also, be sure to read their definition of refurbished since it may vary from company to company. If you don’t find a deal you like directly from the manufacturer, try Amazon.com. They offer many electronics products from re-sellers who have been deemed acceptable not only by Amazon, but also by consumers (check their seller ratings). They also have deals on open-box and like-new products at Warehousedeals.com.
