    Is it wise to consider a newegg open box hard drive? It's substantially cheaper than retail.

    Yes. Open Box means that the customer got the product, but never took it out of packaging. ;) I got a fantastic deal on an "Open Box" Gateway HD2200 22" monitor. Picked it up a few months ago for $199, which was an amazing deal at the time. :D

    So go for it! Open Box deals are always worth checking out.

    Im pretty sure "Open Box" means the customer opened the box, and tried the product/ didn't like it and returned it. Otherwise why would the call it open box, if it was never opened.

    I agree. Surely it couldn't just mean that they opened the box it was shipped in, but not the actual product box.

    This was from a page on Newegg.com:
