Found 9th Mar 2011Made hot 9th Mar 2011
Got an email offer for this refurbished ipod touch today seems like a good deal though there is a newer one out so don't know if it's worth paying the extra.
Bought stuff from these guys before and no real problems worth mentioning.
The advert reads...
These iPods will have scratches on the mirrored chrome back otherwise they are in great condition.

iPod touch features the same multi-touch screen technology as iPhone. Pinch to zoom in on a photo. Scroll through your songs and videos with a flick. Flip through your library by album artwork with Cover Flow. Watch your movies, TV shows, and photos come alive with bright, vivid color on the 320-by-480-pixel display. Browse the web using Safari and watch YouTube videos on the first iPod with Wi-Fi built in.

NOTE - this is 2nd gen not 3rd gen
- the gooner


Do not buy from this company they will not even give you proper stock details and will swallow your money and sell to others if they are their friends.

if they see that customer is shock ed at price they will remove the product from website and put at higher price.

they will cut off calls if they have refunded without customers approval.

Read up on it then. And have a good laugh at yourself. Only the bigger capacities got improved.

hot yes?

hot, yes - if only I subscribed to the Apple cult I'd have one

3G is the 2nd Gen iphone. 3GS is 3rd Gen. I think this is 2nd Gen (3G)

read the specifications, this is 2nd gen. the title needs to be edited

Good deal!

APPLE refurbished ones always look new without visible damage/scratches. This has scratches so is not refurbished, bit of a contradiction. Cold from me.

Great condition apart from scratches on the chrome, half of it is bloody chrome!!!!

Grade 4 = basically 2nd hand.

Cold from me.

might wanna ammend title

Been this price on ebay for quite a while now, but still not bad.
iPod 4 has the beautiful screen and can skype, but costs twice as much new.

I'd say the difference between a 'second-hand' ipod and a 'refurb' is the battery.

That should be new / guaranteed, as that's the one likely let down in old Apple gear. Cos they make them tricky for an amateur to replace if they've gone west.

Dunno if Tier1 say owt about batts.

I'd go with the official apple refurbs if you want a cheapie ipod.

Jailbreak it Sorted kids love em, at xmas these were still £179 new

I need to buy one phone as this. It has a competitive price.
But anyone here can tell me how long is the warranty? If it is one year, i will buy one soon.

not these! 4G was at that price and it's 169 now. Complete different beast 4G when compared to the 2G

cold for numerous reasons as listed above

Grade 4 on their scale is 2nd lowest. For another £30 i would buy a refurbished one direct from apple. Comes with 12 month guarantee and is perfect to look at at.

These were not £179 at xmas!

Yeah this will basically be 2nd hand, might as well try your luck on a gen 3 on ebay

Cheapest Refurb at Apple is £169, so this is not correct.

Grade 2 4th Gen - IMHO a decent deal...

AFAIK, the third gen is slightly different to the 2nd. The box is a bit smaller and the text on the back of the device is three lines instead of two. That is it.

any one else have experience with these guys?



I did, i bought a screen off them, and they sent me a broken lcd then said that they tested it first which they obviously never! refused to refund, so got paypal involved, had to force refund.

Bad company.

http://www.tier1online.com/Info/tier_refurbished.htmThese products are … http://www.tier1online.com/Info/tier_refurbished.htmThese products are not brand new but in our first band of grading, our "Grade 2/Good As New" products arrive with us when a customer has made a purchase and decided to return it within a no-quibble return period. Often these products will have been powered once or twice; and in some cases not at all! We check them, clean them and then re-box them.


If grade 2 is slightly used "good as new", I would wonder what grade 4 is. DOA?

Not really, the person he quoted was saying that they are 2nd gen since there is no 3rd gen 8GB version. Technically you could argue there isn't.

Isn't the 8gb 3rd gen the same as the 2nd gen anyway



So it's a 2nd gen then? oO

yep there are no 8gb 3rd gen and FULL stop!
YES it is a 2nd gen
