What is Refurbished?
Refurbished is the process of inspecting, renovating, and cleaning a product. Refurbished literally translates from English as 'revised.' These are products that have been returned for various reasons, such as excess stock, technical defects, or trade-in programs.
Why the Term 'Refurbished'?
A returned device like an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook cannot be sold as new anymore, even though refurbished devices are usually 'as good as new.' Moreover, there is a significant difference between a 'second-hand device' from an individual and a thoroughly checked and refurbished device by professionals. The latter is referred to as refurbished devices.
Is Refurbished Reliable?
In most cases, buying refurbished products is a reliable choice. That's right, in most cases. Not every refurbished supplier uses the same high-quality components, so product quality can vary from one provider to another. Cheap components can compromise product quality. That's why we only choose components of high quality.
