Name: editor What do you think of buying second-hand items? Would you be comfortable using refurbished goods? Do you think manufacturers should give a longer warranty?

I am okay with buying things second-hand. Sometimes, you may not be able to afford something due to budget constraints. In such conditions, you can try to go for a cheaper item. The type of goods you get all depends on your luck. Sometimes second-hand goods can last for many years. It is good that we get to use luxurious things at cheaper rate because of good are available in second-hand market very easily. It is difficult to make adjustment in the budget for new goods, so I prefer to buy used electronics items always.

I am using second-hand clothes as well as electronics in my house. When we shifted here, some of our relatives gave away their old things to us. We got a washing machine, microwave and a TV. We were able to use these things until we could afford to buy new ones. I believe that it is better to have something at home instead of having nothing. It is good for those people who cannot afford to buy new electronic gadgets and electronics. It is very essential to have the electronics like washing machine, microwave, electronic toasters etc as using such electronic items save time.

My advice is to always go in for new items especially when it comes to electronics. I would not want to take a chance on buying something second-hand and then finding out that it does not work properly. Better to pay a little more money and be satisfied. You are also assured about the warranty of the product. Buying a new product always has an advantage of free servicing of that product. It is always better to invest money on a new product instead of spending money on the maintenance and repairs of the second-hand electronics.

Assembled PCs are best as they cost less and are worth the money. Each part also has about 3 years warranty so basically it is a great deal. It will be good for games and high graphic settings. Assemble different parts.
