What are 'Factory-Reconditioned'
Customers return products for many reasons: a customer may change his
or her mind, or not like the product, or have difficulty operating it.
Whether it is returned a month later or only the very next day, such an
item must be identified as 'reconditioned' or 'refurbished' to be resold.
These products may have been briefly used, and as a result, may show a
small amount of wear and tear.
How are products
Every product targeted for reconditioning must pass a thorough examination.
After repairing any defect and sanitizing when necessary, the product
is repackaged. Reconditioning may be performed by the original manufacturer
or a reputable professional outside firm. All products are returned to
like-new or almost new condition.

listed on our site as 'refurbished' or 'Factory-serviced' meets the same
factory-reconditioned standards listed above.
products come in different packaging?
By law, product packaging must state if an item is factory-reconditioned.
Packaging and terminology differs slightly with each retailer. Some items
will arrive in a regular retail box with a sticker indicating that it's
reconditioned, refurbished, or factory serviced. Some items are repackaged
in a plain brown or white box. Enclosed manuals may refer to accessories
(camera cases, straps, etc.) that are not included with the reconditioned
product. Be sure read over the product information page for a list of
