The simple answer.
The simple answer is, "It stopped working, we took it back, we fixed only what was wrong with it to get it working again, and now we want to get rid of it before it stops working again." So, yes buyer beware. I have known people who have great luck with refurbished equipment, I have known others who had nothing but trouble. I suppose it has a great deal to do with the company you are looking at. Are there products generally rated as good quality? If so, they should be safe to deal with. After all, you don't want to screw up your corporate image over some peace of crap you could have just as easily tossed out, and written off as defective inventory. On the other hand, if the company is just scrapping by, they may need every cent they can squeeze out of everything. Including a borderline part they can sell cheep, with no warranty. So do your homework. What, if any, is the warranty period on the item. Do you trust the company. If your not sure, look them up on CNET. Finally, do what you are doing now, ask questions of your fellow members in the forums. We're here to help each other.
