Thinking about buying a used Kinect

#1CH1CK3NCH4SERPosted 3/30/2013 3:04:15 PM
I was looking at grabbing a Kinect, some local classified listings have some for a good price, but I'm concerned about possibly buying a defective or glitchy kinect. Due to the nature of it having cameras and needing move around etc, is it possible that someone might be trying to sell one that's damaged or has intermittent issues?

I haven't owned one before but I would probabally try to get them to load up a kinect game so i can make sure the camera is tracking properly, do you guys think this is a good idea or not? Does Microsoft offer a good warranty on defective kinect hardware? I doubt I would get the original bill of sale from whoever I buy it from.

Buying anything used is always a huge risk, I would buy it new if I were you. And honestly you aren't missing much, I think I've used mine maybe 20 times or less
