After 2 years on this R15-500, it just stopped. Tried all the tricks to get it going, but no go. I'm on the protection plan so they are sending me a replacement. Just like this last R15 it's a refurb (or so I assume).

The shipping note indicates it's an R15-300-R.

Who is the manufacturer of the 300 series? Does the R indicate reburbished?

I believe the -300 is Phillips. And yes, the "R" indicates that it is refurbished. I have an R15-300 myself and have been very happy with it.
