When it comes to buying smartphones, many people would like to get new things without having to go through anyone’s hands before. But some people are looking for alternatives by deciding to buy second hand. Some are in the form of a repaired machine. But get the same quality as a new device through the standard Passed the same checks as general machines Did you know that the above definition is “Reeferbish” or REFURBISHED, so let’s get to know more. And what is the difference?
Second-hand purchases If you want cheap products Another option is “Reefer Beach”
REFURBISHED There is a definition for the damaged or defective product that is returned to the manufacturer. And go through the repair But was audited according to factory standards one more time And bring it back to release again Then indicate the text To notify the buyer that this is a product “Reefer Beach”
Give examples of problems that arise. And returned to the manufacturer
- The product has problems during transportation such as scratches, cracks.
- Demos are displayed as examples in the store.
- Products that used to be lent and lent
- The box was opened for some reason. But don’t use the product
- The product is damaged or damaged as the case may be.
Did you knowStores that meet the standards will be clearly indicated. But in the case of a general purchase that is not reliable, may not be notified. And will be sold at the same price as the normal device Since it is impossible to distinguish visually whether a new factory without any problems or a REFURBISHED, do not forget that when returned to the factory everything is repaired and packaged as new. Turned out to be hit by a cat dyeing machine instead, but paid the full priceThe best way is to realize that you buy any electronic product, buy it with a reliable standard dealer. Complain when there is a problem Avoid the stalls
The difference between a REFURBISHED product and a conventional product
When it returns to the factory, it will be repaired and refurbished to look like new again. To be ready for sale Therefore, the general user may not be able to distinguish what kind this is. Therefore, buy with a reputable agent only. And if there is sincerity clearly marked like the iPhone 6 (REFURBISHED)
- Product quality
Because it is the problematic product and returns to the factory Which caused many cases Therefore, I cannot know whether it has been completely repaired or not. Because sometimes it may repair the clam according to the obvious problem The question is then the other part. How is it? I cannot know for sure. But what makes it possible to be certain is that it passes the same standard inspection as the new product as well.
- Release price
Of course, when those products have defects before and are not new, so the price is lower and different from the general. If the price is not the same, assuming that this is a Reeferbitch product, for example, it is on sale for 20,000 baht, but sold at 14,000 baht, for example, without any obligation Or various conditions Which is not a general discount promotion
- The warranty
Because the product is defective, the warranty is not common. May be much less than usual Including various conditions as well, so when there is a problem of Refurbish products, when it is time to submit, claim or repair it may be difficult and duplicate money is lost.
HOW DO I KNOW IT IS REFURBISHED?
If you cannot distinguish externally, you have to check the serial number with the manufacturer instead, which is definitely another way and can confirm how this product is. In addition, in some cases, the packaging is not the same as normal products. Therefore, before purchasing any product, you may need to study a little more in order to prevent any mistakes that will occur.
Why do some people still want to buy these products?
The answer may depend on the type of product. Because some products do not need new items, but they can be used online as well as cheaper, for example, some refrigerators are smart. But the main purpose is to soak anyway When comparing the price The features. There may be more than the same or even more expensive models, which we buy at a lower price. Therefore, buying a refrigerator REFURBISHED, it is another option to shop. But have to carefully test the product as well
Products that should not be purchased with a REFURBISHED model
- Smart phone Except for some cases sold by trusted agents such as the quality guaranteed by those brands, Apple or Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition.
- television Although the current trend of the retail price is down. But the repair price is still consistently expensive. May have reduced a bit, but still high If there is a problem with the monitor or motherboard Maybe it’s a pity that I didn’t buy anything new.
- A laptop Because of the battery life involved, and there are still many panels that don’t know what happened before. Sometimes buying and using it may not answer the question. But losing money to the center instead
- Various hard drives or storage devices Because this type of equipment is sensitive The more the nature of use is to collect our important information. So, is it better? And more peace of mind? If they are new and haven’t been repaired or removed
- Power Supplies An essential component of these electronic devices. Because it is an electric power source Therefore, using this type of product that is not refurbish is definitely safer.
What should I consider when looking to purchase a REFURBISHED product?
- Before paying, check the product carefully Try them all Every function, every feature Because I remember that It is a product that has been defective before and the condition is not as new.
- Passed the standard examination and has been certified Of course, when the factory is returned, one more quality guarantee is required. Before release Therefore, it is important that the buyer of Refurbish products must be checked.
- The warrantyWhat are the conditions? Should inquire carefully. Because do not forget that this is the product that had a problem before. In order to resolve the problem with ease.
- Return Policy Many places often do not have this policy. Because the selling price has already been lowered The buyer already knew that it was a Reeferbish product, so it was at your own risk. But at least if the store has a return policy, you should ask about all the conditions.
- All equipment When it is a Refurbish product, it may be sold as a product only. No compatible devices such as chargers, headphones, film, cases are provided, which means you need to buy them all new.
goods Refurbished Considered as an alternative for those who prefer a budget. But still get the quality of standard use, most of the products that are sold again have never encountered any problems. But I can’t tell if it’s 100% complete or not, but at least helps get cheaper stuff. And also save money in the pocket
