I have bought 7 or 8 Epson refurbished printers and 2 refurbished scanners over the last 10 years. I would not consider buying new as the refurbs seem the same but cost less.
Epson immediately ships you a replacement if you have a problem with any Epson product, including refurbished. It usually arrives the next day. Then you return your defective unit in that box at Epson's cost.
I do believe that most of the Epson refurbished products were initially swapped out because of user error and there was absolutely nothing wrong with the original product.
