What are refurbished items?

Refurbished items are items that have been returned to the manufacturer, repaired if needed, and retested for defects and functionality before being sold again. They may include a limited manufacturer warranty, but that varies from item to item.

An item may be refurbished for any of the following reasons:

  • It was never used but the factory seal was broken.
  • It was originally used in field tests, sales displays, or demonstrations.
  • It was returned for repairs under warranty.
  • It was damaged during shipment and returned to the manufacturer for repair.
  • It was returned to the manufacturer for repair but no issues were found.
