But comparing "new with warranty" to "used" isn't necessarily a fair 
comparison.  What you're essentially doing is trading your labor (to 
potentially make repairs) and risk for money, so the trade between the 
two is highly dependent on your risk acceptance posture and your labor 

It's also important if you need more than a "one-off" system.
