I bought a different model that was a refurb on another site. It came DOA. Apparenlty these things have tons of issues. Mine didnt charge. How does a company refurb somethign and then not know it doesnt take a charge? Any way, battery/charging issues is apparently a big problem if you can beleive all the posts on the net. Have no idea about this model, but i think I’d stick with a new one. The manufacturer won’t honor the warranty on refurbs. And even if they did, the cost of sending it back is prohibitive.
