Summary: 1) Though it would have come wiith a vga chord... NOPE (not much of an issue. just got a new one) 2) Refurbished but thought it was still good... NOT REALLY (the power chord given is either too small or power chord hole is irregular cause it's loose.
Summary: I don't understand the high ratings for this monitor. It is an inexpensive monitor and it shows. When I hooked this up to replace a CRT monitor, I had to make a lot of adjustments to get a decent display and even then, it's not good.
Summary: Monitor looks good and is a nice widescreen version but the biggest let down is that you can't you the full resolution of the monitor such that we have to use it with everything too big in screen view.
