Refurbished (or reconditionned) and used are two words that people often interchange. YET, they have two very different meanings!
Yes refurbished means it waspre-owned (i.e.: used) and was used in the past but, the differences between refurbished and used are by no means negligible!
The short answer is NO, they are not! The two products may look identical on the surface but, in reality, they are quite different!
Used products are sold “AS IS“. Meaning that, they might be physically damaged, some parts might be missing and in extreme cases, could be dead on arrival (DOA).
Whereas refurbished (or reconditionnned) products on the other hand:
Bottom line, when you get refurbished products, they look and feel like new and you can count on them to work just as well!
You may get lucky and have no trouble when buying used instead of refurbished.
HOWEVER, considering that network and telecommunication equipment, servers and storage solutions are critical to your business running smoothly, its performance, continued growth and success, can you really afford to take that risk just to save just a few dollars?
This is an question that all business owners and IT managers must ask themselves otherwise, the result may be painful.
Bear in mind, the costs involved “may” not just be limited to your business’ productivity levels!
All this because in order to save a few dollars, used products were selected over refurbished ones.
