Newegg.com.. is buying a refurbed board - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Just buy something new, it is safer that way, and can save you a lot of head ache later on. I have never bought anything refubished. "So how do you know if they are any good?!?" Well I don't but I DO KNOW that it is definatly safer spending a few more bucks on a new one. That is all I have to say. Hope this helps!

Newegg doesn't test anything,period. Newegg doesn't have any technicians at all. Newegg will not RMA a refurb, but will give a refund. The reasoning behind this is because a new product might not be available to exchange with. Also, it prevents consumers from trying to play the system in order to "upgrade" to a new item. I've purchased refurbished video cards and motherboards several times for myself and others from Newegg and haven't had a single problem. If I did, I have no doubt Newegg would have my back. They've proven to me that they take care of their customers. I've returned merchandise well after the warranty period without any hassle whatsoever.
Edit: Btw, OEM products almost always still carry the manufacturers warranty. The common exception to this is an OEM processor.
