What do you think about Reburbished Consoles?

I was looking at Gamestop's website and noticed they're focused alot on refurbished consoles now, so I was curious what you think about them.

I got a factory refurbished slim 250gb Xbox 360 from GameStop back in 2009 when there was a shortage for that console with 250gb HDD. Still works great now days, and I game the hell out of that console everyday! As of matter of fact, it outlasted both my phat 20gb 360 & 60gb PS3. Keep in mind that my "factory refurbished" came with 1 year warranty by MS.

^ this pretty much covers it. The difference in pricing between refurb & new is negligible for the risk you are taking. New is always better than fixed.

Never buy either of the following "refurbished" or "used":

Consoles/Handhelds/Computers/etc
Controllers

I've always interpreted "refurbished" as meaning "repaired just enough to crap out right after the warranty is over".

True. I got a refurb original Xbox and it broke down after the warranty expired.

It's risky to buy a Gamestop refurb console
