Default What is Class "A" Refurbished

I've never seen any general standards set for refurbished equipment, other than to say "good working order." Yes, there are safety standards and alike, but for a camera... Is there any warranty with this?

The price seems a tad on the high side, in my opinion. The accessories are either standard (lens cap, strap, instructions, cables, etc.) or could be purchased separately at a modest cost (64 meg Smart Media card, rechargeable batteries). Also, with new Oly's being introduced, some of these prices (C-700 and C-720) should be coming down.

Caveat emptor. I think the C-700 on E-Bay warrants a little more investigation.

Congratulations to your daughter on graduation. A digital camera is a wonderful gift and good luck in your search.

I was told earlier this week by an Olympus refurbish reseller that a class "A" refurb is one that is restored to the original specs by Olympus, has a full 90-day Olympus warranty, and it contains all of the items that were included with the camera in the retail package. This was specifically for a C-2100. If I order the camera, I'll let you know if this is true or not.
