Lightbulb Refurb Kindle DX for $269: good deal?

Saw on SD that refurbished Kindle DX's are selling for $269 (link, if interested)

Does anyone have experience with these?

Its the original Kindle DX and not the newer Kindle DX Graphite which has a grey case and the newer + better eInk Pearl screen.

Seems like a decent price if you're okay with the fact its white, has the older type of screen, that it doesn't come with a charger and that its a refurb/returned unit.

If it is refubished and sold by Amazon and backed with Amazon's 1 year warranty (or even it is possible to buy additional warranty) - you will be lucky.

If you want Pearl display and full (true) warranty and 30 days replacement - buy new DX Graphite for an additional hundred bucks.

The link shows 'fullfillment by Amazon" so it has the true warrenty and 30 day return.

However, I don't think its the new version.
