NO.

They say they come with no warranty...this would concern me if I was to buy one.

Yeah I saw that, but then in description is says 90 day warranty, where as new ones come with 2 years

I used to always use Bushnell's but, last year I had three fail and they were just out of warranty. I wasn't happy. I purchased more Moultries and they seemed to be doing fine except that they are very sensitive to shadow movement. I always point them away from the sun but, they still take a lot of photos of nothing. I don't know if the more expensive ones have an adjustment for that.

I have about 25 of the Moultrie Trace and they do take a lot of pics in some instances. I switched trees and stopped getting those shadow pics. Some places there was not another tree to capture the pics because of direction I wanted to capture and just live with the extra pics. But try moving the cam in a slightly different direction and it may stop the shadow pics.

I had a refurbished Moultrie that worked until it got gone. :rant: The camera was very sensitive to shadow and sun movement. Between that and the pictures of nothing but movement from the wind it filled up a card pretty quick. I have the Game Spy 2 plus Moultrie now that doesn't seem to be as sensitive to that. .

When the warranty terms are changed stay away form refurbished items because this tells you they have no confidence it will last.

I always buy refurbished regular cameras from Canon. On a $1000 body I save $300 and the warranty is as if I was buying new camera. Last one I bough is in its 9th year and  hundreds of thousand of clicks past its life expectancy.  I buy them directly from Canon.
