    Default Getting refurbished rather then new if cannot repair.

    suppose you buy new camera but next day spoil and SC cannot repair. Only thing is they can only replace with refurbished unit.

    are you okay with it?

    New set already can't last more than a day, wonder how long will a refurbished set last.

    There is no difference between a refurbished unit and a new unit to me. As long as the same conditions for guarantee/warranty apply and the refurbishment has been done properly.

    NO

    They have no business selling you something as "new" and then asking you to accept a refurbished unit the next day.

    It's quite hypothetical as almost all shops allow a 7 day exchange.

    What if it goes in day 8 or soon. I do believe if you're persistent, you're likely to be able to get a new unit. They will want to protect their reputation for quality n customer service but you may need to get past those low level clowns who can't think straight.

    A camera isn't that expensive that it's difficult to write off. For a few dollars they undo all the good name they spend loads of money building does not make sense.
