Hey guys, great site you have here. I have been browsing for a few weeks.
This is my situation, I have been looking at getting a good RD for almost a year now but had kept putting it off (I'm a poor college kid, who only works in the summers). I finnaly got my first big paycheck this summer and I decided to spend a portion of it on a Passport Escort x50 red (my interior lights are red). After doing some research and looking for a good deal I decided to go with overstock.com. I talked to the online CS rep for almost an hour and he assured me that the detector was "brand new in box". When it was all said and done I paid $253 (he gave me a %10 discount for being a new customer). So I'm not going to lie I was pretty satisfied that I got it for 50 bucks cheaper than most (thats 5 hours of work yo!). But then I decided to search "overstock" on y'alls website and I found some disturbing things. RadarRoy saying that they were selling refurbs and that they were not authorized sellers yadda yadda.
Should I be worried?
How can I know if it was refurbished?
I should get it in the mail tommrow and have 30 days to return it
