    Shipped fast & arrived in excellent condition! One puzzling thing: it unexpectedly came with a grip for the Joy-Con controllers, which is cool except there’s no port on it to connect the charging cable. I guess this was just a defect when it was made & it’ll still work if you want to use it as a controller grip only, but I must say I felt insane trying to figure out where & how it plugged in!) Otherwise, it was pretty easy to connect everything, set up a Switch account & I successfully downloaded Minecraft so it looks like it’s good to go. Since I got this as a Christmas gift for my young son, I didn’t think however about the fact that it wouldn’t come in a box, so I still have to think about how I can still give him that “wow” factor when he opens it, but yeah- I was already a fan of refurbished electronics and Back Market did not disappoint!

    I am very pleased! I don’t normally buy refurbished but my nephew convinced me to try Back Market for two reasons: (1) it’s better for the environment and (2) he has had good experiences with Back Market. The Lenovo I received was in perfect condition, can’t tell it’s no new. I had no trouble setting it up and there was no bloatware! After this purchase I also bought a renewed iPad Mini 5 for my dad’s 80th bday and saved a lot; it to was awesome and in great conditi

    I don’t leave reviews often but I wanted to comfort any uneasy minds with purchasing here for the first time. I will admit I was a little skeptical about buying a refurbished item from a site I’m not familiar with but I couldn’t be happier. Works great and my son is over the moon about his birthday gift. Thank you!

    Exterior of laptop was pristine. Display was not as advertised. Advertisement was for 3840x2160. Delivered item has 1920x1080 @ 360 (still good though). Chassis fans were incredibly dirty and clogged causing the system to run above 70 degrees. Had the clean them and provide new paste while in upgrading the storage and ram. So please ensure refurbished means refurbished.

    It arrived on time and in good packaging but the laptop and charger were dirty. On top of that, there is a screw missing on the bottom. I'm not sure if that was there before they received the item to refurbish or if they forgot it after the fact. The price of the laptop at MSRP was definitely not over 3,000 also.

    Ordered this OLED Switch in good condition expecting some scratches or wear. What we got was essentially a brand new Switch, the box it came in had more damage than anything else. I have used BackMarket for multiple refurbished products with 100% satisfactory! I will keep coming back and referring people here.

    Review for Back Market: 5/5. Delivery was fast, and customer service was extremely helpful and responsive to my questions. As advertised, my A15 arrived in very good condition, and I can't detect any hardware issues in Windows 11. Would definitely recommend Back Market to anyone looking for good, refurbished hardware. Review for the A15: 3/5. Good design, chassis is tough, price is decent for a refurbished laptop with middling components. The fact that it's (mostly) upgrade-able is the important part for me, I just needed something with a GPU. That said, I have a lot of issues with this. Firstly it's Windows 11 only, which sucks, but most people know that so I'm skipping it as a point. ASUS' approach to hardware control is truly awful. All hardware control has been relegated from the BIOS to Armoury Crate, which is the bloatware that ASUS keeps installed on the motherboard. What that means is that if you completely wiped everything from the laptop and did a fresh install of Windows, you would have no way to control the power consumption, fan speed, GPU usage, etc, without installing garbage software. And Armoury comes packaged with AURA, more ASUS crapware, which uses even more ...
