Hi,

 

I am looking at buying a Moto 360 from Amazon, and saw that they have them on their "Amazon Warehouse deals" site for $84.12 USD. I was wondering if anyone had ordered off this site before using YouShop, and what the quality was like? The item is listed as being

 

Used - Like New

 

Item will come in original packaging. Packaging may be damaged.

 

 

 

What exactly does this mean? Will the Moto 360 be new but just have damaged packaging? I tried contacting amazon but they were not very clear at all.

 

 

 

Thank you.

Never ysed it personally, but dont see a problem with the description.

 

It could be something that someone bought and returned after they realised they didnt want it, or it was a gift but they opened the box etc etc. Dont expect a new box (if the original purchaser tore it to open it then thats what youll get), but the device will be factory reset and look like new.

It;s where things from amazons really good returns policy go to get sold. I have bought a few gaming accessories off it. All were supplied in a brown box with the amazon barcode on it, not retail packaging. All were fine

like new is basically 'great condition', I would expect it to be pre-owned/used

Thanks for that, very helpful. :) Would you mind telling me if the stuff you brought was used, and what the 'item condition' section on Amazon said? Thanks.

Cant recall what they said it was, What I have bought was 2 xbox one kinect power supplies when they were available nowhere else, and also some PS4 controllers that were really cheap.

 

The xbox kinect power supplies looked to be unopened in their little bags, the cables were still factory bundled.

 

The PS4 controllers were opened, but did not look to have been used for gameplay, one had its factory bundling undone and someone had reasonably neatly rebundled it, the others were factory bundled.

 

Since they never directly ship from amazon warehouse I try not to use it since by the time it goes thru a reshipper etc its usually not that great deal.
