    True. Most of the 1SaleADay deals are, but that doesn't mean it is a bad product. In fact, in most instances, the retail models of hardware have gone through less rigorous testing than refurbished models. A refurb has typically had a new casing put on to get rid of any scratches or dings after its problem is repaired. Then it is hand tested in a more thorough way than the assembly line retail models. Just for folks who didn't know that. ;)

    (Of course, this is for most products, but not necessarily all of them. It does depend on the company.)

    Oh, I buy stuff almost weekly from 1saleaday...e.g, Cuisinart toaster oven, OCZ Agility 3 SSD, 2 Logitech (refurb) webcams and a Netgear (refurb) dual-channel router...the list goes on...

    But it's a pet peeve of mine when deal listings don't mention the condition of the item (or Droid forums plug an app, without mentioning the price). ;) Probably "genetic defect" would be a more honest description than "pet peeve".

    Speaking of which: I noticed you had 2 typos a week or two ago. I was stunned. You're normally so meticulous -- thought it was a sign you were having a rough week. :blink:

    And hey I didn't know about the new casing!!! For real??? That's awesome.

    Thanks again dgstorm for the heads up on another great deal. A few friends and family missed out on the Acer Icon tab a few weeks ago, so it was nice I could pass this info onto them.

    Btw, the Acers I ordered from 1-sale a day, even though refurbished, were and have been excellent.

    Thanks Matt (about the typos). I take that as a compliment. If you ever see me leave a typo, please don't hesitate to let me know. I am human afterall, and yes, sometimes I get so slammed that stuff slips through the cracks. Constructive feedback is always appreciated! :)

    And, as for the casing, yep. Most of the time, but not always, if an OEM is reselling a repaired or refurb device, they will either clean it up, (if it is only dirty), or they will completely replace the outside to make it look brand new.

    I always check the 1 Sale A Day site on a daily basis. FWIW, their affiliate site, Ben's Outlet (the link is on the 1 Sale A Day site), has a daily deal, but they also have deals that stick around for a few days. And they always seems to have tablets on there. Granted, most of the tablets are the cheap Pandigital ones, but every once in a while they will have a Thrive or Acer Iconia available. For example, right now they have the Bionic lapdock for $90 and the Atrix lapdock for $60. These items will be available until they are sold out. The prices are typically about $10-20 higher than what the item typically goes for on 1 Sale A Day.

    And how did I miss your promotion to EIC? That's AWESOME, congratulations!

    Ack, sorry guys for going far off topic. Er...1SALEADAY ROCKS!!!! Refurbs are SAFE TO BUY and QUITE RELIABLE!!!

    LOL. Technically I have been the EIC since January, but we only started posting the title a couple of months ago. Thanks for the congratz, though. Yes, actually being a "grammar/spelling nazi" will be much appreciated. I do so much now that I am more likely to slip up now and again.

    Now then. I am done hijacking my own thread. Yes... 1SaleADay is pretty awesome! Carry on and stuff!
