Summary: I've bought 'used' monitors before, and they were often heavily scratched, with one or more obvious artifacts visible in the screen. But this one, although it had some minor scrapes on the edges, has a perfect display. No artifacts. Crisp and clear.
Cons: Monitor base came with several scratches, no manual, and no driver disk. I have bought "refurbished " electronics from other stores on line and never had an issue. When I attempted to generate an RMA, the web page said I must pay. Buyer beware!!
Summary: I ordered this flat screen through Amazon and had it shipped to my son. He was thrilled, told me it got there exactly when it was suppose to and he is very happy with the purchase. Now his son can do his homework once again at home.
Summary: Having both analog and digital inputs is a great convenience. Unlike a lot of other LCD's (like Dell), images and text still look great at lower resolutions. The built-in USB ports are ideal for keyboard/mouse connectivity.
Summary: Before ordering this monitor, I looked up the specifications online, looked at pictures and any reviews I could find. The stand looked potentially fragile in the pictures I found in the reviews, but otherwise it reviewed well against other used monitors in this price range.
Summary: we love the flat screen monitors. we have them together side by side. they are adjustable height wise and we are able to turn them horizontally or vertically. that comes in handy when needing to stand or change levels as you are working on projects.
