In electronics if you have sub-consciousness of brand new stuff then you should know that you are wasting 20-40% of the amount on which you're buying. Because of the fact that, in electronics, brand new depreciate 20% of the price the next moment when you unsealed it. Whereas the open box ones can sometimes be re-sold at profit provided that you maintain its condition and its damn true!
People in West are mostly familiar with Open Box & Refurbished Laptops and prefer to buy it over Brand New as it can save upto 40-50% of cost. Check out their most famous sites i.e amazon, best buy, ebay on which open box and refurbished items are being sold with the warranty and protection coverage of respective brands.
Technology keeps changing in 2-3 years of span so here's where an open box and refurbished gives you another advantage over brand new that you can upgrade fast without thinking of the cost you spent earlier because you have already recovered the price. The people who buy brand new, it takes them more years to upgrade to a newer one as they have spent more on their PC :)
People in UAE are still seem to be unfamiliar with Open Box and Refurbished and consider it as a defective or used piece which is totally wrong.
For those who doesn't know what open box or refurbish is then for their information, the majority of open box items are products which people bought and then returned because they decided that the product wasn't what they wanted or sometimes these are the display pieces at any retailer. They can't be resold as new. (At Killer Lappy Deals we import all these products from US)
Refurbish on other side are those units which were returned due to any minor to major defect but that defect has fully fixed by the retailer or manufacturer to 100% okay condition.
Performance wise both refurbished and open box would be 100% accurate only if you use it with an optimistic mind without keeping any fear of defect :)
At Killer Lappy Deals we test Open Box products for basic functionality only. We also make every attempt to supply the original accessories for Open Box products because these products are mostly imported without boxes and accessories to save more on taxes and shipment cost.
However, Killer Lappy Deals only guarantees that you will receive the product itself, accessories may or may not be included. The missing accessories could include cables, original adapters, manuals, CDs etc. Sometimes there could be a non-noticeable scratch on item caused during shipment handling but that has no effect on laptop's performance at all. Condition wise our Open Box and Refurbished ones are like brand new and if we start selling it with the label of brand new so it can't really be recognized :)
Refurbished products come to us in full tested condition and with the box and accessories. Still there's a chance of some missing accessory in it but mostly it will contain most of the accessories.
