I've found a Quadro FX 1100 ... refurbished for about $420, and from a trusted vendor. Is it a good idea to get it? or would it fall apart after a week or two? Is it generally OK to buy refurbished hardware?

Thanks

Do they give you any kind of garauntee with it?? If it's from a place you trust, and comes with a warantee, probebly wouldn't fall apart straight away - personally I don't like the idea enough to get one myself, but if your happy to get it, go for it.

it's got a 15 day return policy on refurbished items.

that's my question really .. why not?

Thanks again.

Why not...

Well, the warantee is one thing, 15days isn't all that great, other then that, I couldn't really explain it :P I'd just be xpecting the thing to have a fault with it, or break quickly or something *shrugs* If the price is right for you, and you need a new card, then maybe it is worth it for you.
