Summary: I bought it used and everything was working fine. On my desktop set up, my monitor would be 2 - 3 feet from me. I like 17inch because any smaller I feel I have to squint my eyes or lean forward.
Summary: it works, but there was a 2-3 inch scratch just above center point on screen. Came with all the cables, no HDMI. For price and for the fact it was just to be used for my security camera system it will do.
