Cautions and Conclusions
If you decide to save money with refurbished, open box, or other types of bargains, protect yourself with due diligence: if you have not dealt with a company before, check with the Better Business Bureau to see the company’s rating. While no company is perfect, companies with low BBB ratings or recent negative reviews on sites sites such as RipoffReport and Epinions.com should be avoided.
To avoid problems with accessories such as power supplies, lens filters, or other device-specific items, make sure you know specifics such as computer type, size needed, and others. If you buy the right item up front, you avoid problems with returns later.
There are great deals out there if you know what you need and want, so do your research, and save some money.
