Gamestop Refurbished Handhelds?

I'm looking at finally replacing my DS since mine broke a little over 6 months ago. I don't want to spend a ton of money, but I'm not picky about the model, and looking at Gamestop.ca they sell refurbished Phat's for $59.99 canadian. That's a pretty damn good deal and well into my price range, but I'm curious as to the quality of the refurbished device.

Has anyone ever purchased a refurb of Gamestop.ca/Gamestop.com who can comment on the quality of the items?

    As a former employee of gamestop, I would recommend buying a used one rather than a refurb. In my experience the failure rate is much higher on refurbs and unless policy differs drastically in Canadia, the prices should be the same.

    Alright, I'll see if I can't find a used Phat in-store. Thanks for the heads up.
