I don't get Refrubs.. they are used.. why not just buy used, you know the Refurb was used AND Broken..
Or an open box return with bad convergence and was dusted off and called fixed.. Good luck!
I have to disagree. I've never had a problem with a refurb item. They are not the same as open box. They were returned with a problem and Epson repaired them. They come with the same warranty as new, so Epson will repair again if any problems arise. Can you get that with a used projector? No, not unless you fraud them into thinking you are the original owner. On top of that, I haven't seen many 8350 selling used for $850. Most are trying to get $1000 out of them.
Besides, who is to say a new product will perform any better than a repaired product?
@hperry, They are sending a refurb, overnight shipping. Should be here tomorrow. If I need to replace the second one, I'd call the number bill talked about.
I'm unsure how many times I can ship a refurb back.. but I'm going to check it thoroughly. Focus ring should be one of the first things on Epson's QA list.
