    Condition of Replacement Units

    Check out my pic which is the repaired/refurb replacement. I'm not saying every country's will look like that - heck it might only be the way they look in Australia. Mine was also shipped in a padded white bag with a blue Surface sticker and the clear plastic. But my replacement had clearly had...

    Condition of Replacement Units

    Sent in my New Surface Pro 128gb for replacement

    For those that received a replacement in a small, plain cardboard box and want to know if it is a refurbished unit, check the stickers on the box and that should answer your question. The attached photo is off one of the stickers on the box I received my refurb replacement in.

I also read, and I'm not sure how accurate it is because as they said they were making assumptions, but some people who bought Surface Pros marketed as refurbished swore they received a...

    Condition of Replacement Units

    I've posted a longer rant in another thread but one of the stickers on the brown box should say "DESG: Repaired". These ones are refurbish.

    Replacement Units?

    One of the stickers on the brown box should have the letters DESG and the word Repaired next to it. These are definitely returns. And don't count on them arriving in brand new condition. The refurb I got has scratches on the screen, back cover, near the charging port, even more near the SD port...
