EVGA B-Stick PSU: 220-G2-0850-RX any good?

Hello,

I nabbed the below item for about US$94 after shipping. It arrives today.

http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=220-G2-0850-RX

However upon further research into the B-stock (now that I know what that means) and its one year warranty I am doubting the purchase in terms of overall support longevity. Though I have had great luck with refurbished items before (Surface Pro 2, 3DS) The one year warranty on such an important long lasting component is worrisome. Is it worth waiting a week or two to try and return the PSU with shipping cost loss then go for the 220-P2-0650-X1 linked below (Amazon for Prime shipping)? The P2 has a 10 year warranty and is platinum rated. The PSU will be going into an ITX build.

TL;DR B-stock Gold and US$50 cash in hand VS Platinum and long warranty?

The 850 G2 also has a 10 year warranty when bought new. I believe the warranty is very important so i would send it back.

Yeah that is my thinking. I'll end up waiting on a replacement I/o Shield from EVGA anyways so I'll look into returning the PSU.

Thanks!
