Five good reasons to buy refurbished

There are many reasons to purchase a refurbished item, but the best reason is the opportunity to get a great deal on a great product. So, put aside your doubts long enough to read this introduction to refurbished products and you’ll see how you can save money and get some amazing stuff.

Good Reason #1: Good Things Come in Refurbished Packages

First, forget the idea that all refurbished products are low-end, defective goods that aren’t worth the risk; absolutely not true. Refurbished products come from a variety of sources including:

Overstocked inventory
Opened box items
Customer returns
Demonstration units
Packaging or cosmetic damage

In many of these scenarios, the items labeled as refurbished are brand new or like new products that require no refurbishing. Such situations can include overstock items that simply need to be sold to make room for new products or new products opened by a retailer for a customer who wanted to see more and then bought something else. Items like these offer you all of the same functionality, features, and capabilities as the same product purchased new at full price, but you’ll pay a lot less. Smart.

Good Reason #2: One Man’s Return is Another Man’s Treasure

Not all customer returns are prompted by a product defect. Many times a product is returned because it just didn’t meet the customer’s needs. But, if there is a product defect, the product is returned to the manufacturer, inspected, the defect is corrected, and the item is repackaged as refurbished so it can be resold. Another opportunity to get a good-as-new product at a discounted price.

Good Reason #3: You Can Hit the Ground Running

Demonstration units are products that have been used in some capacity prior to resale. In most cases the product has been used in manufacturer tests or to demonstrate it at a tradeshow, or it has been used by a retailer to let customers see and try a product before they buy it. When the next new product comes to market, demo units are returned to the manufacturer where qualified technicians inspect each product’s functionality, clean, and repackage the item for sale as a refurbished product. A refurbished demo unit can be a great find as these items have previously performed at least to manufacturer standards. Think of it like buying a refurbished car. A car that already runs well is a great selling point.

Good Reason #4: It’s what’s Inside That Counts

Sometimes a product’s packaging gets damaged during shipping but the items inside are well protected and unaffected by damage to the box. Maybe a box has gotten wet, or the corner is crumpled. In some cases the product may have minor cosmetic damage like dents and scratches which rarely affect product functionality. Whatever the reason, if the item has to be repackaged either by the store or the manufacturer, the product will be inspected to be sure it has not been damaged and chances are it will be labeled as refurbished. Once again an opportunity to get a brand new item at a reduced price.

Good Reason #5 The Micro Center Commitment

Micro Center is committed to offering customers quality refurbished products at an outstanding value. Many of these items arrive in like new condition; however some may exhibit minor scratches, dents or other cosmetic damage that does not affect the product’s performance. Limited warranties on refurbished products are provided by the refurbisher or supplier.

As a buyer, it’s usually impossible for you to know the origin of a refurbished product, but when you purchase from Micro Center, you can be confident whatever source they come from, our refurbished products are always thoroughly inspected by our supplier’s qualified technicians who check each product’s functionality, clean, and repackage the item for sale.

Refurbished products are not to be confused with Off-lease products. Off-lease products, similar to a leased car, are any items previously leased and used by a customer for a period of approximately one to three years, then returned to the lessor. Go to Refurbished Deals.

We have Westinghouse here at work. This is a 32 incher. Everytime you turn it on, it will make a loud ridiculous sound. It sounds like a Kamikaze plane about to hit the ship. then you have to power cycle it to work properly. We do that every single day. It's been months now and this thing refuses to die.

Average I'd say, which is fine for me. But too huge!! I have an average, 42" Dynex that I use only for home theater, but have tried out games on it, and it very fine for me, running at 1920 x 1080p. The screen is just too big for me to use as a monitor lol. But yes, you can definitely use it as one..

Why is 40" an odd size?

I've loved all my Westinghouse products. Just need to dial them in with a good calibration bluray or iso

I use a 40" as a monitor that's why I asked. Was just contemplating if I could use one of these in place of my present TV. I love my TV/Monitor atm but it creats problems w/being able to watch TV and PC at the same time. I sit 8-10' away from the TV so the large screen is not to much for me as a Monitor

The parent's had a Westinghouse (not this model though) in an RV...it only lasted 2 one week long trips. Maybe vibration got it though.
