Title: Rigol 1054Z New vs Refurb?
Post by: made2hack on December 09, 2016, 03:49:45 pm
Hello all,
Looking for some opinion from the forum.

Would you buy a refurbished 1054Z for 40 EUR off the price of the New unit?

Comes with 90 days warranty vs the 2 year? Is it worth saving that 40 Euros?

Thanks,

40 USD is like 5 Starbucks coffees in Norway.

Go for the brand new one!

The brand new, factory sealed unboxing feeling on its own, and the 2 years warranty can't be beaten :)

Doesn't seem like it to me.

I thought the warranty was 3 years?

You are correct. Just noticed on the Rigol EU website. Yeah, definitely worth the 40 Euros.

If you get a 3-year warranty direct from Rigol then yes, go for it.
