    What are your opinions about buying a refurb. DVD player? Is it generally a good idea? I don't have any picked out yet. Thanks.

    I purchased a Denon 2900 refurb from ecost.com about a year ago. It has been great. Before that, I purchased a refurb Denon 1600 from ecost.com, and that worked great also.

    So far, 2 of 2 aint bad [​IMG]

    Generally, if a refurb doesn't work, or breaks fairly quickly. There are warranties / policies in place to get another one, or your money back.

    I've also got a refurbed Denon, so far so good, it looks like a brand new one, and performs very well.

    Still, though, given how cheap so many nice-performing players are I cannot justify (for me) ever purchasing a refurbished unit.

    I tend to agree with Jack on this one. I can see refurb receivers, TVs, DVD recorders and the like, but players are now so cheap, that they are almost throw away items, like cell phones have become.
