If you are buying directly from Amazon on the warehouse, if you have any problems their return policy and procedures are excellent. I have nothing but good things to say about Amazon customer support (which is very rare).

Usually the ones that says "Item will come in original packaging. Packaging will be damaged."

Are usually good deals.

You can really save up on things when "packaging is damaged" (the contents inside might be new after all).

Such was the case for me when buying a motherboard that was around $150+ and I ended up buying it for just 99 bucks in new condition. What was "used" and "very good" was the box itself lol.. The motherboard was completely new.

Yup, I ended up getting a Samsung 860 Evo and it only mentions that the packaging will be damaged. So it really sounds like a good deal to me!

I bought a fantastic tp-link n450 router from amazon warehouse for $17 years back. It works so good I am still using it and the new one I bought is still sealed lol. It looked like new, worked great. I stream firestick on other end of house no problem, given at 1080. Really should get my ac router going. I bought a few other things on there mostly from amazon a very few from 3rd party sellers. Usually I am not going to buy used for a ~10% discount I see too often on there. For some things its a great deal I think, just note your return options sometimes they don't give you much time. Some things you could tell they were tried and sent back, maybe a slight scratch/smudge on it or something minor. This router was perfect but I didn't care as it sits away in a corner and I don't look at it, and budget was tight at that moment. If you can return it for not functioning, I'd have no issue with a GPU. Even with a glass case you can't see the card well. Given return times I doubt they would take something with many hours on it.

I'd be careful of used 3rd party of course, if there is used on there. I found the amazon supplied warehouse stuff to be new returns. I go to ebay for used. It really irks me now that everyone has to list everything on their sites, its harder to know what you are getting and you have to check every detail. Try to buy a new 2-3tb hdd lol.

Yeah, normally I would be more ware of 3rd party but this one is the amazon warehouse so thats why I'm considering it
