What is HP Renew?
HP Renew is a program established by HP as an outlet for IT equipment that has come out of the factory, but ended up without a home. This could be as a result of a cancelled order, over production, test equipment, demo equipment from shows etc. or product returns. The unit go back into the factory, it undergoes the full manufacturing process again, gets stringently tested to HP New Standards, and is then distributed as HP Renew, sometimes at up to 40% off the original Retail Price.
Is it used or second hand?
Some of the HP Renew product is. It depends on the reason it was shipped back to the factory. If it is a demo unit, or a product return, it will have been used but very lightly at most. HP Renew is not an outlet for second user or trade in equipment, it is an outlet for units in most cases ‘As Good as New.’
Who refurbishes these units?
HP Renew units are refurbished only by HP. No one else. HP guarantee that these products have undergone the complete Remanufacturing and Testing process before being given the seal of HP Quality.
Are they damaged?
HP Renew items will at some point been out of their boxes. As such, they may have a very minor mark or scratch on them. This will not affect functionality. HP grade these units very stringently, and we find most items to have no marks on them at all.
What products can you get?
HP Renew covers the full HP Product Portfolio.
What about the warranty?
HP Renew products are covered by exactly the same warranty as HP New products. Same repair, same phone number, same service. They carry the full warranty valid from the date of purchase from us. And you can apply Care Packs to them as well.
What are the advantages of HP Renew?
There are two. The first is price. HP Renew units offer an alternative to brand new for customers who want to extend their IT budgets. HP Renew Units can be up to 40% lower than the original recommended sale price.
The other reason is because it is a responsible environmental choice. Most companies nowadays have green objectives aimed at reducing their carbon footprint. So start making sustainable choices today by choosing to redeploy products otherwise destined to be waste.
I’m not sure, I still prefer new.
