Anyone know if it is worth it to get a discount through buying an Oculus that is used or has been refurbished? I know I can save some money doing it this way but I also know some electronics aren’t worth risking this.
If you know the seller or the seller has a good reputation, then I guess there is no problem buying a used Oculus. Buying a new OR can be expensive for many of us. Buying a used or refurbished can be a good choice as long the OR has no past issues.
A refurbished version usually has some permanent hardware or software defects, doesn’t it? That’s why I generally prefer to get the used ones. There is a higher chance that the components are complete and the machine runs properly, just not entirely new. If you can get it from a close friend, that’s even better.
