Default Any reason not to buy a refurbished D90?

Other than the warranty, is there any real difference between a refurbished and a new D90 if bought from a reputable seller? Along with the warranty question, can 3rd party warranties, such as Mack, be applied to refurbished models?

Thanks,

Jeremy

Several years ago I purchased a Nikon Factory Refurb and I am sorry to say that when it was 6 months old it failed and was repairable for the cost of a new camera, so I would be a good bit leary of a refurb.

It really depends on how much you'll be saving and what kind of warranty you get. I wouldn't do it unless I could save more than $100 and get at least 6 months warranty. Personally, I don't think Mack or other 3rd party warranties are a good deal, (unless you are the 3rd party offering the warranty).
