A Graded product, also known as refurbished, is a product that has been returned to the original manufacturer as faulty. These faults can be electronic, or cosmetic. The product is then rectified of any errors and re sold back to the public via an outlet. With graded appliances they may show cosmetic marks or show signs of previous use. These products are not sold as new and may have imperfections or damaged / non-original boxes. However, graded products are electrically perfect and have been rigorously tested before being resold to the public.
