Actually, I have had great success rate and I would jump faster for a less-expensive factory refurbished model over paying full price for a new unit. My reasoning is simple: whatever failed on the device to cause it to be returned, that module is replaced, and the unit has to go through another "burn-in" testing process to be labeled as 'refurbished'. So essentially, the unit has gone through quality control 2x, and if nothing fails after being in a consumer's hands and that second round of QA, it probably won't break on me!
