Refurbished products will clearly state the warranty period in the product listing.

OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”.  In a nutshell alot of engineers, system builders and other usually business or industry based customers don’t require what you would class as a full retail unit,  the units that alot of end users are used to, that come in a nice box with accessories and manuals.  They don’t require 100 of the same manual,  they don’t require 100 copies of the same driver disk.  These products are often served to business in “OEM” to cut down in cost and waste.  This means they usually come without retail packaging in large bulk packed units with only the required accessories.  Usually OEM products are available long after production cycles end,  if you are supplied an OEM product we will fully explain this and also provide links to the latest drivers and manuals for the product.
