Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Shop have offered me a refurbished model not even my own one repaired OR a new 40gb and some money back . I really want the 60gb but am worried about what a refurbished model means . Could you shed any light on this for me as I have to let them know within 2 days
Hi by them saying refurbished they mean their going to give you one that they have recieved back with a problem like either disk read error or over heating problem.
The up side to having a refurbished one is that they replace most of the parts that was in it originally say the problem was not reading disks if they just change the laser then send it out then it might overheat and then they would lose customers and get bad press as they dont want either of this the replace most if not all of the main repalcable parts like lases unit heatsink,fan,controll ports,output ports like to tv and internet.
But the bonus to having a refurbished one is the parts they replace the old ones with are newer and made better as they find out what caused the problem in the first place and then improve on the way they make the parts.
So if it was me i would take one of the refurbished ones knowing its got a load of new and better parts inside and it should last you alot longer as they deffinately dont want you to send it back to them again do they if this kept happening they would lose all their customers so go for it your going to get a better ps3 than the one you had originally let me know if you need further assistance ok
