Question "like new" fugeray from Amazon

So I came across a "like new" fugeray from Amazon warehouse deals today. I read the FAQ page for amazon warehouse deals. And it said an item is only marked like new if it has no cosmetic damage and is in perfect working order. It gave an example of someone buying a coffee pot making a pot of coffee in it and returning it. It seems legit. So with your opinion should I go for it?

BTW a new fugeray would be about 76 dollars. So that's about a 20$ mark down from a new one.

I purchased a "Very Good" EHEIM PowerLED Full Spectrum from Amazon Warehouse for $40 a while back. I still can't figure out where the "minor cosmetic damage" is. Thing seems perfect and has performed well. I know they only have an 88% rating, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy again based on my experience.

Usually stuff is pretty good. However, I once bought a "like new" MonsterRay that someone had replaced the fixture with a perfectly sized wooden slate with and shipped back to amazon. I got refunded but it was really annoying to have happen

That reminds me to the perfectly sized and weighted rocks for iPhones. What did Amazon do when they found that they were ripped off? I hope they keep track of whom sent the wood.

nothing really. they just issued me a refund. Amazon really does have great customer service. I think they could tell I was a little....irritated.
