I guess it really depends on the CSR, some of them are just Pain in the ass. I ordered a Bissell Crosswave and it came in bad shape, they just offered $10 and asked me to suck it up...

Recent two items from Warehouse deals were just scams. A Bait and switch a knock off product for what was advertised. Amazon was quick to refund or provide promotional credit and a partial refund but Buyer Beware
I've generally had great success with all of my AWD purchases...until I ordered a Zotac GTX 1080Ti for $700 (a good deal at the time).

When I opened the Zotac box, there was an MSI GTX 1050 2GB card inside.

Amazon quickly refunded me, and I shipped it back.

They didn't even seem concerned to go after who had originally purchased/swapped it out, but I guess that's understandable since it was their employee who approved that return and enabled it for re-sale.

Bought a Aquasana water filter, couldn't even open it up to check the filters inside, had to return it which wasn't a hassle. However I sometimes order products and don't bother opening them up within 30 days, so that could be an issue for people like me don't check out the merchandise right away.

We ordered a long board from warehouse deals the other day for like $40, it came with a huge crack in the side. It came in a box 2' x 4' x 2'. I honestly thought they'd just credit back the amount, but they wanted to ship it back. This thing would have cost a fortune to ship back. They credited back a whole $15, but I figured we could keep the parts, or fix it.

Last item was open box and like new, was missing half its stuff. They wouldnt credit anything back, just ship it back.

They must spend a billion dollars on shipping a year. Most of the other like new items we got though were still new. Mostly trying to stick to ones where it says packing is damaged, vs repackaged now.

... Are you sure the 20% can justify the lower specs?

I’m pretty sure they have partnership and the shipping would cost them minimal. But still they run everything by rules most of the time, and they wouldn’t care if the company is lost money again on some none re saleable items.

I wouldn't touch your #1 pick even brand-new. Gigabyte laptops have a horrific RMA rate; failing batteries, overheating, dead LCDs and their service department takes forever. Just go on Reddit or any computer users forum. They may have a good spec, but that's assuming it actually works. Buy an ASUS, or Lenovo or Dell if you want your PC to actually work consistently.

Added a rare 1080 laptop for only $1557 if you can stomach the unique design. Most other models are now sold out and removed from original post.

I’ve had nothing but issues with everything I’ve ordered from amazon warehouse. Missing pieces and broken stuff every time, regardless of “very good” condition. The people that run the warehouses obviously don’t know anything about the stuff they sell or simply don’t care about giving accurate descriptions. I would never spend that much money on something from there.
Ive had pretty good luck with it over the years. Especially on amazon prime day where everything was an additional 1/2 off

I normally have pretty good luck but my last warehouse purchase was a high end headlamp and I ended up getting a cheap rayovac headlamp with an incandescent bulb. The thing looked ancient. Not sure how that was amazon inspected but after negotiating with the CSR they just issued a refund and I didnt have to return it.

QA issues abound with Asus, MSI and Acer as well. Dell and Lenovo are really on another level over the other Windows OEMs, but they don't make anything like the Aero. So far my Aero has been problem free and usurped the 2011 Macbook Pro as the best laptop I have ever owned. My only gripe is the slight UI hitching when going from iGPU to DGPU, but that's an Optimus problem.
