@grey I think he meant refurbished, in like-new condition.
It's a bit confusing. They are actually not used. But often have been tested.
Hard to believe that they would have brand new servers sitting in a warehouse for 5+ years. Would be good it someone from XByte could clarify.
They've clarified often. They never handle used gear.
From their website --
This means that many of the refurbished machines sold by xByte Technologies are not just refurbished, they’ve never been in production. Often times with a refurbished server, you receive the benefit of never used equipment at a significant cost savings by taking advantage of the realities of made to order manufacturing.
Unlike you, they use the words "many" and "often" instead of "never". But it's good to know that most of their stuff is the equivalent of brand new.
