Refurbished Tablets Explained


What is the difference between refurbished and used tablets?

At Reboot IT, we understand that clarity is key when choosing the right tablet for your needs. The difference between refurbished and used tablets lies primarily in the process each type of device undergoes before it is sold.

**Refurbished Tablets:**
Refurbished tablets are pre-owned devices that have been thoroughly tested, cleaned, repaired if necessary, and restored to their original factory settings by professionals. At Reboot IT, our refurbished tablets undergo a rigorous refurbishment process that includes hardware and software checks to ensure they meet specific quality standards. They often come with a warranty, offering peace of mind and reliability akin to a new device. Refurbished tablets may also include genuine brand parts replaced during the refurbishment process, ensuring they perform optimally.

**Used Tablets:**
Used tablets, on the other hand, are sold as-is without undergoing a professional restoration process. These devices may have been previously owned and used with no quality checks or repairs carried out before resale. They typically do not come with a warranty and may show signs of wear and tear, have varying degrees of functionality, and may not include the latest software updates.

In summary, when you purchase a refurbished tablet from Reboot IT, you're getting a device that has been brought as close to new condition as possible, often at a fraction of the cost of a brand-new tablet. Used tablets might offer an even lower price point, but they do not offer the same level of assurance or quality as a refurbished tablet.

How are tablets refurbished?

At Reboot IT, our tablets are refurbished through a comprehensive process to ensure they meet high standards of quality and functionality. Here's how we do it:

Inspection:Each tablet is first thoroughly inspected for any physical defects or functional issues. This includes checking the screen, body, buttons, battery health, camera, speakers, and all other hardware components.

Testing:The tablets undergo rigorous testing to ensure all features and functions are operating correctly. This includes testing the touchscreen responsiveness, connectivity features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as sensors and software applications.

Cleaning:The devices are then meticulously cleanedexternally and internally. This step ensures that all dust, dirt, and previous user data are removed, bringing the device to a like-new aesthetic condition.

Repairing:If any hardware issues are identified during the inspection, our skilled technicians repair or replace the faulty components with genuine or equivalent quality parts.

Software Updating:Tablets are updated with the latest operating system available for the model, ensuring they run the most current and secure software.

Quality Assurance:After the refurbishing process, each tablet undergoes a final quality assurance check to confirm that it meets our strict standards for sale.

Certification:Once a tablet passes all the tests, it is certified as refurbished by Reboot IT, guaranteeing that it functions as well as a new device.

Packaging:The refurbished tablet is then carefully repackaged, ready to be sold to the new owner.

By following this detailed refurbishment process, Reboot IT ensures that our customers receive a product that not only offers great value but also reliability and satisfaction comparable to a new tablet.

Are refurbished tablets good for the environment?

Yes, refurbished tablets are indeed good for the environment, and at Reboot IT, we are proud to contribute to sustainability through our refurbishment process. Here's why choosing a refurbished tablet from Reboot IT is an eco-friendly choice:

Reduces E-Waste:By refurbishing and reusing tablets, we extend the life of these devices and prevent them from ending up in landfills prematurely. Electronic waste is a significant contributor to global pollution, and refurbishing technology helps to mitigate this issue.

Conserves Resources:Manufacturing new tablets requires a substantial amount of raw materials and energy. When you purchase a refurbished tablet, you help reduce the demand for new resources and the environmental impact associated with the production of new devices.

Lowers Carbon Footprint:The process of creating a new tablet involves mining, manufacturing, and transportation, all of which contribute to carbon emissions. Refurbished tablets have a smaller carbon footprint since they utilize existing devices that have already gone through the initial production cycle.

Promotes Sustainable Practices:By supporting the market for refurbished tablets, you encourage a circular economy where products are used for as long as possible before being recycled or disposed of, thus promoting more sustainable consumption patterns.

At Reboot IT, we are committed to doing our part for the planet. By choosing our refurbished tablets, customers not only receive a high-quality, reliable device but also contribute to a more sustainable future.
