Summary: There are dull spots on the monitor, maybe something pressed against it before it was packaged? When it's white screen, you can't tell, but black screen shows it. The monitor itself is nice, shipped with VGA and power cable. Some kind of spring mechanism lets you adjust up and down without much effort. It sits slightly askew, leaning to the right.
Summary: I only bought this monitor because it performs so well for so many years. I've only had one of these ever go bad on me. The resolution isn't as great as the newer HD monitors, but these things are true workhorses. You will definitely get your money out of them.
