Pros: For a refurbished monitor it came looking brand spanking new. All the pieces match and it is pretty sturdy. For 70 bucks this thing is a steal. It is a lot bigger than I was expecting as well. It's the perfect size for a gamer too. I was on a tight budget and this helped me save a good bit to go ...
Cons: none whatsoever. For a refurb this thing looks brand new!
Summary: I bought 3 of these for an extended desktop, and they look amazing. 1600x900 isn't my ideal resolution, but they work well and are very clear. The major drawback is that I'm fairly tall and these monitors are NOT.
Summary: Bought 3 of these and apparently there are 2 different stand configurations: both are 2 piece, where the neck clips in behind the monitor then slides onto the stand. However one has a sightly wider width on the connecting prongs to the monitor, as well as a different opening to slide onto the base.
