Thoughts on new vs. refurbished TL350/WB2000?

I am looking to give the TL350 a try as my Lumix DMC-ZR1 has gone missing. (All I have now are Sony NEX, Olympus PEN, and Pentax DSLR systems.)

I can get a TL350 new in the box for $240 delivered. There are refurbished TL350 units available for $185 delivered... not a huge savings, but a good savings considering the camera is just for carrying around and won't be my main unit. I normally am OK with refurbs but given the spotty reliability I have read about I am wondering if I might not be safer with the new one... or perhaps fresh firmware is all a refurbed TL350 might need.

Please weigh in if you have some advice for me- I am ordering the camera on Friday.
