"I'm an accountant and strongly recommend refurbished products.
So... what does accounting have to do with it?
When products are sold, they often aren't tested first. They go in the box and ship out. Some are duds and some are damaged in transit.
Now, when a product is returned, that's a financial hit. You have to ship out another and usually lose the profit on that sale. Further, you then have a damaged product that cannot be sold at full price even when repaired. That's another hit to profits.
Accountants hate that!
So do CEOs.
Now, the profit margin gets even worse if a repaired product comes back a second time.
CEOs and accountants get really, really, really pissed off when there's a second return.
They make sure that refurbs are fully tested and thoroughly gone through to make sure that it never, ever comes back again. Oh, and they have to discount it because it is a refurb.
This is why you should buy refurbs. They often have a lower failure rate than new products and have been thoroughly tested, which doesn't happen to new products. Plus refurbs come at a discount!
In my opinion, refurbs are the only way to go. Save a little money and you've got something that's been tested more than a new one. This post is being typed on a refurb laptop. It's been running 24/7/365 for a bit over six years. I only buy refurbs. I trust them more than new products."
Honey Badgers have very tough skin. The skin is very thick and rubbery, which is almost impervious to arrow and spears. Even a blow from machete can't scratch the skin. The skin protects them from bites.
