My Refurb experiences over many years have been the polar opposite!
Call me skeptical but I wouldn't think the projector being refurbished would have anything to do with loud fan noise and particularly poor black levels?
Not to say that your fan noise issue was not a defect in your case but those issues are more likely due to the projectors inherent limitations and the black levels could possibly be improved via proper calibration! What kind of refurbished projector did you purchase and from where? Did you address the fan issue with the seller?
I could possibly sometime have a bad experience but I have had GREAT overall experiences with all kinds of refurbished equipment! You just have to purchase from a reputable source and look CLOSELY at the warranty.
I look for refurbished goods with a FULL normal length warranty and so far everything I have purchased has been as indistinguishable from new and I have saved LOTS of money!
As you can probably tell, I am a BIG proponent of refurb goods!
