1- Products that are virtually new
With regard to technical specifications, refurbished devices are on a par with new products. In some cases, they are new products that have been returned by dissatisfied customers. In others, they initially left the factory with a small flaw that has since been fixed or they may have been models that were used for display purposes in retail outlets. In all cases, they are tested and, if necessary, some parts have been changed. Last but not least, refurbished devices are sold under warranty, generally from six to 24 months, and certified as compliant.
2- Bargain prices
Buying a refurbished product is similar to buying a new device, but at a significantly lower cost. Depending on the brand and the age of the product, you can expect to save between 20% and 50% when compared to the standard retail price. For example, on the specialist website backmarket.com you can find a Motorola Moto G (8 GB) for just 35 dollars, an iPhone 8 (64 GB) for 250 dollars and a MacBook Air 11″ (Early 2015) for just 400 dollars.
