Summary: I bought this display along with a refurbished HP desktop. It arrived in good condition and has excellent display characteristics. I am very particular about color and clarity; this display met my expectations. I highly recommend this product.
Summary: It was plug and play right out of the box. Because it was a refurb, I expected it to be scratched and dinged, but it was perfect. No dead pixels. No one who comes to my house knows its a refurb.
Excerpt: Nice large screen, very bright. We had a problem setting it up due to very sketchy information in the instruction manual. I am not an expert when it comes to computer hardware, so it would help if the set up instructions were a little more detailed. I took the monitor and CPU to our local Office Depot and a technician got the problem worked out and now everything is OK.
