Is remanufactured as good as a new unit?
Yes, it should give the same service life for about 50-65% of the cost of a new component. Usually, however, the factory warranty period on a new unit is significantly longer (up to two years) than the three-month warranty on a remanufactured unit. The new component also can probably be rebuilt a couple of times locally. All in all, though, a remanufactured unit represents a good value.
