About a year ago I was looking to buy another HP Bladesystem but the cost was just not in our budget. After a few quotes it was clear we were out of luck.
Then, in desperation I searched Craigslist… then Amazon, Ebay… everywhere! It took forever, but I finally found a distributor selling refurbished HP equipment.
“The HP Renew Program offers you a comprehensive portfolio of completely remanufactured HP products at competitive and attractive prices. HP warranty is assured as all HP Renew products undergo the same rigorous process as for new products.”
Andrew Wiese (Account Manager, 888-763-9920) responded to my request for a quote and the only thing I can say is — he knocked our socks off. Their price for refurbished/re-manufactured equipment was 10% of the quote from HP. Yes. 10%. Suffice it to say, we jumped on that deal and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who will listen. Andrew responds to requests for quote in a timely fashion, and still helps us with issues even after the sale when many other sales people might be tempted to drop our calls on someone else’s desk.
Well, I was wandering around the HPTF Expo last night and sure enough, there they were, Andrew and his Synergy colleagues. In fact, I also met Gary Dean, President of Synergy Associates.
If you’re looking for HP equipment, I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised at the prices they quote you. And they’re good peeps, give ’em a call.
