You will not get what you order with the refurbished item
I love buying refurbished or open box to save some cash - new means little to me. So I decided to try the refurbished version of the 2 firesticks I had ordered previously. Needless to say I was ticked off that I did not receive the same item at all. The stick itself was the same model, but manufactured in China vs Vietnam. The remote is where I was angry. I love the new firestick because the remotes will control the TV power and volume, and the firestick sets it up for you when you first turn it on. I have 4 of these versions now because of it. The remote sent did not have these features. So I returned it and ordered a new one that came correct. The remote is worth the extra cash - I know because I now have 3 gen1 and 1 gen2 firesticks in a drawer to get the added speed and remote features!
