OPEN-BOX AND REFURBISHED ITEMS / RETURN POLICY
Because items that are listed as "open-box” or “refurbished” are sold at greatly reduced prices, they are subject to a limited return policy. Such items can only be returned within 30 days of the applicable invoice date. “Return” constitutes receipt of the product by Product Manufacturer, and not the mere issuance of an RMA. Our Product Manufacturer(s) cannot provide replacement service for these items, as their stock is limited. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of these items is with the buyer. These items have been tested for functionality, but may have superficial physical defects including, but not limited to, scratches, dings or dents. Should these items exhibit a functional defect following their purchase, a limited warranty is provided by the manufacturer.
