So there's a DVD Burner that's cheap it says its open box which means they only guarantee your receipt of the product, it may not have all the parts that are required to run and they won't send them...

Go for it if its at a decent price, Open box means someone opened it and either could not use for some reason, Its not refurbished and thats a plus, if you have all the parts to hook a DVD burner up to your PC, i wouldn't worry about missing cables or screws that would normally come with the drive.

Hi :) 

Open box can also mean a return as not working....

Half price maybe...and still a risk...

Burners are so cheap I wouldnt bother...

All the best Brett :)

Hi :) 

Lol..you really think so ? If so I have a bridge in London to sell you....

Big resellers just send them back to the manufacturer (unchecked) or resell them...

All the best Brett :)
