While customers will most often see brand-new products on LTE Fix, we do occasionally offer deals on refurbished products.
What exactly does refurbished products entail?
Different companies and industries may have different types of “refurbished” products. Since the electronics industry does not have a firm, widely accepted definition of “refurbished”, its exact meaning may vary from one product to the next, or one company to the next. In various cases “refurbished” may be synonymous with “reconditioned”, “refreshed”, “repaired”, “re-certified”, or “like new”. LTE FIX defines a refurbished product as any item that we decline to sell as new. However, all refurbished items have been fully tested and certified by LTE FIX comply with our highest standards of quality assurance. A refurbished product may lack the original box or packaging, manuals and/or accessories, and/or may be classified as:
- A new, open box item, or
- Factory overruns (exceeding a specific required quantity), or
- Floor demos and/or used for testing, or
- Items that were returned to the manufacturer or vendor for various reasons, or
- Used items repaired and/or updated with newer assemblies or components, or
- Used items from equipment leaseback, trade-in or upgrade programs, or
- Leftover equipment sold by a downsized company to a 3rd party company.
Please note that a refurbished product may have minor cosmetic blemishes, scuffs and/or scratches and/or may or may not come packaged in manufacturer’s original packaging. A PDF download (or web-link) for the product’s datasheet, user and/or installation manual is provided for all refurbished products when available.
Tested and Certified
All refurbished products offered through LTE FIX are thoroughly tested and certified by our technicians for quality assurance. A refurbished certification label is appended to the product and/or packaging to identify the product, technician and date of certification. All firmware, software and drivers, where applicable, are updated to the latest version available at time of testing.
Refurbished products that were pre-owned may not be entitled to the same manufacturer registration and benefits that are provided to a new device. Any concerns should be explored prior to purchasing a refurbished item.
