    Refurbished tablets: what to look for

    When buying a refurb Transformer tablet (there are so many out there at relatively attractive price), what should I check to make sure that nothing is still defective? Supposedly refurb can get double-checked and can be as reliable or even more than the brand new one. But it all depends on who/which party refurbish that. I am talking about ASUS factory-refurbished products, which carry with them 90-day warranty. Please share your input. Or if you have some experience with refurb, please let us know!

    This is my checklist, but I don't quite know how to test some of them (e.g. the battery)

    - battery charging
    - battery life
    - LCD color balance
    - LCD: Any dead/off-colored pixel --> cantest with all white pic, all yellow, all green, etc.
    - Glass: scratches? marks?
    - USB port etc: works?
    - heat: device is hot or not?
    - camera
    - speakers
    - quality - bass, treble?
    - volume?

    I would make sure that the seller would take it back for a full refund if I found a problem with it . And that their return policy was up front and in writing . I would not send it to Asus if there was a noticeable problem during the return period .
