Summary: It was packaged for shipping with some balloons not enough to fill the box. the box was pieced together with a cardboard flap with just a piece of tape holding it. I actually took pictures of it because I couldn't believe someone would ship anything like that. It wasn't broken but when I stood the monitor up it would fall over the stand was warped . I don't know if it was like that before (I purchased it used) or it warped due to the lousy packaging.
