    I am planning on replacing my laptop keyboard. The refurbished ( the retailer claims it was refurbished by manufacturer ) keyboard on ebay is around 40 USD so 1/3 the price of the new one from HP Store.

    Have you ever bought refurbished laptop parts? Is it worth it? Shall I expect a big risk of buying faulty product? How does a laptop keyboard become refurbished anyway?
    Local HP representatives ( Polish ) claim the warranty doesn;t cover keyboard replacement.

    I have got to say that there aren't many refurbished keyboards of this model on ebay and notebookcheck claims the laptop's keyboard is of decent quality ( but ofc not high-end, premium ), so it must be a good thing, right?

    I wouldn't mind minor scratches on the keyboard as long as the feedback would be the same as that of the new product.

    @kuba67 if the seller ships bad item, you're covered by eBay and PayPal warranties. Just clean it with alcohol upon receiving.
