Open box still means it's like new....it was just returned without the extra contents.
What is a open box item? Does Newegg.com open box items or does the original manufacturer?
Open Box items have been opened and touched and/or returned. Because they originate from different situations, they may or may not include accessories, documentation or retail packaging. Open Box products are sold with a 30 day Refund-Only Return Policy. We recommend that you try out your open box product immediately after receiving it.
