Why Refurbished Cameras are Cheaper

Written by  on August 12, 2012 

Some people are wary of buying refurbished items because they are thought to be cheap and poorly fixed products with shorter warranties. However, what you do not know is that, most products have nothing wrong with them and sometimes, they were simply exchanged because the owner does not want the color or due to some minor scratches or dents. These products cannot be sold as new, so they are labeled as refurbished or refreshed even if they are good as new.

You will see that refurbished items have some dents, scratches, or other forms of damage, but these do not affect the item’s performance. Some goods are actually branded as new products called “newfurbs.” Cameras are usually the products classified under this because high-end cameras can be very expensive, so buyers usually prefer their cameras to be in pristine condition. Cameras are often returned for some reason unrelated to the product itself.

Some consumers just take advantage of the liberal 30-day money back guarantee, so they can own a brand new unit repeatedly. The Nikon refurbished cameras are bench-tested and certified by the authorized service centers of the company before they are re-packaged and sold as refurbished to the market. This ensures that the performance of the unit is still at par with brand new models even if they are branded as refurbished, but at a cheaper price. You may also stumble upon an overstock unit or whose box has just been damaged.
