5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased consumer

Pros: Looks BRAND new
Amazing image quality
Very light camera
Battery life is excellent
Manual Control of ISO, f-stop, shutter speed
Brilliant shooting modes
Photo editing software built in

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I was skeptic at first to order this refurbished; however, I am very pleased with my decision to order from this site. The only issue I have is the fact that it took so long to process and get here even though I had checked expedite process/3-day shipping. I could have gone without spending the extra ten bucks on that, because it ended up getting here almost 5 days later. Very pleased with how well the camera was protected in it's box. Only thing I have to warn- be home because UPS doesn't require signature on the box.

5 out of 5 eggsLovely

Pros: This camera is just great. You can't even notice it's refurbished. It works like new; all of the features for the camera and the lens. Had it for quite some time now and works as expected.

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: Great D-SLR for a great price. This camera works perfectly. The pictures are much better than my point-and-shoot and super-zoom cameras. It's very easy to use. It came in a box that says "reconditioned". I didn't notice any problems with the camera, lens or charger. Everything works exactly as expected. The camera did not have any blemishes or wear. It looks new.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsHighly Reccomend!

Pros: I ordered this D3100 Refub and newegg was kind enough to send me the D5100! Not to mention, I ordered one day and got it the next.

Once again, newegg hooks me up!

Cons: None yet, other than wrong model.

Other Thoughts: Reccomend this to anyone who is as lucky as me to get a free upgrade!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst time buyer

Pros: So far I haven't had much trouble with this camera. It's controls are easy to figure out and the quality of the photos are far more than I expected. Overall, I am very pleased with this camera and it has not left my side since I carry it around daily.

Cons: The camera doesn't come with the hdmi port or the mini usb, the strap is a bit uncomfortable and a pain to thread through on the camera. You also might have to shell out another hundred or so for the carry bag, memory card, battery recharger, stand, and cleaning supplies.

Other Thoughts: I was adamant about buying a refurbished camera, but I haven't had a problem with this one so far. But it's only been a week and I've cleaned it every other day. Anyone wishing to learn photography, I suggest this camera because of it's simplicity and professional features. Good gift for a young teen or for yourself, just for the sake of it.

5 out of 5 eggsList

Pros: This is a great camera, it is fast to focus, and it is quiet while doing so. There are a ton of features to it, and yet it is easy to use. There is now need to worry about it being refurbished, and if you are worried about it you can get the extended warranty.

Cons: I haven't had anything wrong with mine, and I am glad that I finally spent the money on it.

Other Thoughts: Don't be afraid to buy it refurbished, like I had said. This is a great camera, and for the price you can't beat it!

4 out of 5 eggsShould have gone new

Pros: Awesome camera, it takes great pics!

Cons: The kit lens that comes standard on the camera is decent, mine had a defect in the zoom ring where it was not perfectly smooth. Have to send it to the manufacture to get it fixed.

5 out of 5 eggsvery happy

Pros: Very happy with this camera as an entry level DSLR user. Easy to learn and use. If you want to get some hands on fast and learn DSLR photography I recommend this.

Cons: Autofocus noise

Other Thoughts: I was a bit worried buying refurb but I saved a lot doing so and the camera was in perfect condition with no fingerprints on it or anything. No reason not to buy refurb!
