Refurbished. Not slapped together.
Sometimes when you hear the word "refurbished" you think "repaired." That's not quite the right word to use in this case. These bulbs weren't shipped off to some old tinkerer that lives beside a junkyard. These bulbs were sent to a place that Phillips approved of, and the work was done to the same exacting standards the company always uses. It's not just a glass sphere with a match taped to the bottom. These are real bulbs that work just like the ones you might find on a shelf right now.
It's just that they're gonna cost you a little less. And that's not so bad, right?
