Refurbishment is the distribution of products (usually electronics and electricals) that have been previously returned to a manufacturer or vendor for various reasons. Refurbished products are normally tested for functionality and defects before they are sold. It is repaired from the manufacturer and resold.
The main difference between "refurbished" and "used" products is that refurbished products have been tested and verified to function properly, and are thus free of defects, while "used" products may or may not be defective. Refurbished products may be unused customer returns that are essentially "new" items, or they may be defective products that were returned under warranty, and resold by the manufacturer after repairing the defects and ensuring proper function.
Other types of products that may be sold as "refurbished" include:
Items used in field tests, sales displays or demonstrations
Items returned for reasons other than defect and tested by the manufacturer
Items returned to the manufacturer because the box or item was damaged in shipping
Previously leased units that are turned in and resold after the lease ends are considered recycled not refurbished
Used electronics that have been turned in to an electronic recycling program are called recycled
Used items that have been donated to a charity or non-profit organization are used
In the event that a company needs to downsize, they will often sell their leftover equipment to a 3rd party refurbisher.
Different companies and industries may have different types of "refurbished" products. Since the electronics industry doesn't 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", "remanufactured", "refreshed", "repaired", "recertified", or "like new".
