1. Find out how your vendor defines "refurbished." Some second-hand products may have only been a never-used display unit, meaning it'll perform just fine. But with an open box refurbishment, it may be missing parts or have a functional defect. Make sure you read closely and ask questions so you're not surprised with what arrives at your door.
2. Shop from trusted manufacturers or a certified re-seller. Companies like Samsung will restore products to their original condition with inspection to ensure functionality. Apple also has a great refurbishment program. If you've never heard of the seller before, you're more likely to run into trouble
3. Check the warranty plan. Your purchase may come with as much as a year of protection from the reseller. You can check with your credit card, too, as they may extend coverage based on the pre-existing warranty.
4. Know the return policy. While the gadget may initial perform okay, over time it may degrade faster than expected so you’ll want more time to send it back for a refund.
5. Research the product's past life. Ask the seller questions about how they've used and stored the item they are selling. Higher tech items that may have been stored in a garage or exposed to water could cause electrical issues.
