Is slight defects found in factory outlet worth accepting for 10% discount to list?

Has anyone ordered factory outlet and then sent it back to re-order full price? If so, why?

Thanks,

Rick

If I had a dollar for every time this question go asked....


Yes, yes, mainly because they wanted a custom color.

To clarify, the defects are generally very, very minor, and do not affect the sound quality. These aren't returns, they're pulls from the production line.

Search tool is nice. ;\)

Not sure I would use the words "product rejection defects", that is a little strong.

Yes, well worth the 10%, you will unlikely not be able to find any small nicks or blemishes.

I have 5 pieces of FO gear. I found a small scratch on the side of one speaker (which I am now hard pressed to locate).

I have pretty good luck with the search tool, but then again I read the instructions. \:\)

Geez, Randy, what are you thinking--reading the instructions?!? Who does that?
