Summary: If you're using this as an occasional use, back-room monitor that no one will see it is probably suitable for that purpose. Otherwise the quality of the "refurbishment" is so poor that it is unsuitable for any situation where it will be visible.
Pros: Comes on when plugged in, picture quality is ok, tilt-swivel- height adjusting stand is awesome
Cons: Power button doesn't work - can't turn on/off, but it does come on when plugged in. Filthy! Like "used on an outdoor construction site" filthy!

Summary: Normally refrub stuff is good, still time I wasted $100.
Pros: It lights up and does all functions you would expect. Except... See Cons

Summary: I bought these for $75 ea and got the 1 year replacement warranty. Unfortunately, I've only had a 33% success rate wrt satisfactory condition and performance of the unit. So..., as much as I hate to say it..., unless you like wasting time, these refurbs are probably not worth the trouble.
Pros: I ordered two of these. One was an excellent value w/ slight cosmetic damage but a really bright and sharp display. See "cons" regarding the other one(s).
Cons: ..., and the other one had significant damage to the frame in the area of the power switch, rendering it almost inoperable. Once I got it to power on and stay on, the display was much dimmer than the other, w/ a yellowish hue. I returned this one and its replacement has just arrived. No cosmetic ...
Summary: I just got my new hp pc and new hp LA2205wg monitor. HP removed on the pc box the monitor DVI port and replaced it with a better HP Display port- good. The monitor has the capability of connecting with VGA, DVI, and Display port- good. 3 cables provided. VGA, DVI, and USB.
