Differences between refurbished and used products

Refurbished and used products?

Refurbished (or reconditionned) and used are two words that people often interchange. YET, they have two very different meanings!

Yes refurbished means it was pre-owned (i.e.: used) and was used in the past but, the differences between refurbished and used are by no means negligible!

What if someone offered you two identical products, one refurbished and one used. Are they really the same?

The short answer is NO, they are not! The two products may look identical on the surface but, in reality, they are quite different!

As a business owner, an executive or just a responsible employee, just ask yourself how much are your corporate data and your company as a whole worth to you?

What exactly is the difference between used and refurbished?

You get what you pay for

This is a question that all business owners and IT managers must ask themselves otherwise, the result may be painful.

Are you really ready to risk the health of your corporate data just to save a few dollars?

Just ask yourself this simple question;

How much does each hour of downtime due to equipment failures, cost my company?

Bear in mind, the costs involved "may" not just be limited to your business' productivity levels!

Considering that:

All this because in order to save a few dollars, used products were selected over refurbished ones.
