Difference between used & refurbished

Second-hand products are different from Refurbished. On this page we explain the differences. There are basically three forms of a product state in electronics.


You would say that Refurbished and second-hand is the same, after all it is both used goods that are sold again. Refurbished, however, is different from secondhand because Refurbished goods have been checked and overhauled. Refurbished goods are tested during a strict check on quality and technical functioning and parts are replaced or repaired if necessary. After this, the device is cleaned and data is deleted. The software will be updated to the latest possible version.

Often new accessories are supplied, but the main difference is the warranty. On second-hand products, there is often no warranty or only a limited warranty, because it is not checked, the seller can not run the risk of offering a long warranty. You can also see that electronica second-hand is only sold by end users themselves, for example at eBay. Refurbished products are often supplied with a minimum of 3 months warranty, with Refurbished.nl products are delivered with a warranty of up to 3 years.

With refurbished you will have certainty. A second-hand product is often offered by the end user himself, without warranty or any other form of certainty.
