Why buy used network equipment ?

Whether you call it used, used or refurbished, the purchase of computer equipment in the IT secondary market may provide significant benefits. If your organization has not considered the user’s computer Secondly, then now is the best time to consider the value of what many say is “equally reliable” team. Secondly, the user’s computer has been a vital option for state and federal governments and private and public organizations worldwide. These organizations are stretching budget dollars by capitalizing on this non-traditional IT planning and procurement process.

Secondly, the user’s computer and over again is the result of leasing contracts ended, full of OEM, buying mistakes, closures and stop programs, which supply the markets with excess supply and end-of-life equipment. This surplus is mainly composed of the equipment used, although a significant portion is new, surplus manufacturers, open box or not used (out of the box) on your computer. This fully functional hardware, including routers, switches, network modules, servers, server options, telephony and much more is available and priced at fifty and ninety percent off list price. With savings in that range, IT budgets stretch significantly, while the limited IT budgets can achieve superior technology through the acquisition of IT surplus would not be possible through traditional channels.

Many major computer manufacturers such as Cisco, HP and Sun, also participate directly in the market for used equipment users to meet the growing demand for quality and affordable IT equipment.

Most high-end equipment is built to last and when it does not usually due to a human error as the mishandling of hardware. The consensus is that it’s safe to say the team out of the lease is “as good as new.” (Note that it is not uncommon for new equipment that is tested at chance to fail immediately or within a short period of time.)

The reality is that the equipment used is thoroughly tested before re-entry into the market. used equipment is two to three percent failure rate, which is not much more than new equipment. After implementation and passed an initial inspection before the ownership team in general, is shown in a short period, suggesting that the continued acceptable performance. As with the new equipment when the equipment used is often the result of human error, such as abuse, not a hardware failure. In other cases, an easy solution may be to replace the power supplies, drives, system boards or something.
