Refurbished Tablets for Sale
Get a Name Brand Tablet for Less.... Buy Refurbished!
I'm a big fan of buying refurbished because I like saving money and I like getting high quality products. I've bought 2 refurbished laptops, 2 refurbished computers, a refurbished home theater receiver, and a refurbished MP3 player.... In each case the item appeared basically new (no signs of use.. the MP3 player did say refurbished on it though) and the item has held up for a long time.
A manufacturer refurbished tablet or recertified tablet is usually a tablet that has been returned and may have been repaired. The manufacturer thoroughly tests the unit before selling it as refurbished. Sometimes a repair is a good thing - it means that they found whatever was wrong and fixed it. Other times I have wondered if new items are sold as refurbished so that they can sell them at a discount without lowering the price of the new item - but this is just speculation on my part. In any case, when you buy a refurbished item, it will often look just like a new item.
The main difference is that the warranty is usually shorter. It may be just 3 months instead of a year. However, Amazon sometimes sells their refurbished Kindles with a full year warranty - but that's a rare exception.

Ebay Buying Tip
Look for tablets that are "Manufacturer refurbished." If it says "Seller refurbished" it may just be a used tablet.
Also, always view feedback, and look for sellers who have thousands of positive feedback.
