Help buying D5100 (refurbished vs. brand new)

Hi guys, I've decided on getting the D5100 but I can't decide between getting it brand new (amazon) or refurbished (from adorama or nikon). Since it's a $160 difference, I thought I would ask here.

What would be the biggest risk I am taking buying refurbished? Anyone here bought theirs refurb'd?

I believe that if something is refurbished by Nikon it's brought back to the same standards as a brand new one, and I'm thinking some might be returns that didn't have anything wrong with them? When else is something refurbished?

Nikon D5100
