beware of this monitor stand

STEPHEN I., Newegg
10 June 2015
  • Summary: Would definitely not buy again.
  • Pros: Has Displayport port and stand that does potrait mode.
  • Cons: You can easily drop this if you are unfamiliar with the mounting. The screen will slide right off the stand and break. It doesn't come with instructions to warn you of this. Also, the color is very dim in the refurbished monitor that I got. Only viewable at night.

Definitely not refurbished

Jody T., Newegg
29 April 2015
  • Summary: Newegg was great with return authorization. Thank goodness I am Newegg Premier member so I do not have to pay the $27 to ship it back.
  • Pros: 22 inch monitor with heavy duty stand that tilts, swivels and has height adjustment.
  • Cons: Monitor is very used and not refurbished. Stand was different than what was pictured and was huge. Monitor was dirty and dusty and not at all what I would considered refurbished. Monitor powered on and all looked ok at first but then the screen got very dim. Adjustments to settings and powering o...

Quality Monitor - Bad Packaging - Many Defects

Nicholas T., Newegg
16 April 2015
  • Summary: -Due to Newegg's default policy of making you cover return shipping for defective items I ended up purchasing Newegg premier to get the free return shipping labels. I know if I hassled customer service for free return shipping label I probably would have received it but hassling customer service is...
  • Pros: -Great color (at least on two out of five of the monitors that I received) -High quality stand -Displayport input -Cheap -Nice OSD and OSD accessible configuration options. For example the monitor lets you choose a default input and the behaviour when plugging in a new input (should it automatica...
  • Cons: -Three out of the five monitors that I ended up receiving needed to be returned due to various defects. These defects included the screen being very dim, colors having a reddish tint, dark spots on the LCD due to LCD damage and scratches to the surface of the LCD -The packaging for this product w...

Excellent 21.5" HP Monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
16 March 2015
  • Pros: Solid and well-built HP product -- beware those labeled "de-branded HP" because they are not related to anything HP. These units are 100% HP in every aspect. The technology is dated 5 years but the color ranges, hue spectrums and related are quite good. The stand is one of the best I've encounter...
  • Cons: Less energy efficient and less range of colors than modern LED monitors; warranty as is . . . risk of failing but mine has worked well for 8 months.

One of them died

Gracie C., Newegg
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought one of these in October and loved it so much i decided to get two more for an eyefinity set up in December. All monitors were working great once I got past the display port issue stated above.
  • Pros: The monitors look great. They come with a display port. they can be swiveled vertically, and come with good solid stand. Very good choice if you are looking for a budget monitor.
  • Cons: Terrible packaging. One of my monitors died, there is a problem with one monitors display port, I have had to switch to DVI for that one.

USED one, not reburb

HyunSuk L., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: It is CLEANED by an 3rd party company US Micro corp, NOT HP. The item description does not mention it. Newegg even shows HP as the manufacturer to contact, as quoted below. This make to think that it is refurbed by HP.
  • Pros: cheap, IPS, FHD, USB hub Ext is clean and nearly no scratch
  • Cons: It is a heavily USED monitor, NOT a refurb. The back-light showed 16891 hrs from the monitor info when I got it. 16891 hrs requires 12 yrs if used 4hrs/day, and 6 yrs with 8hrs/day, 4 yrs with 12hrs/day, 2 yrs with 24hrs/day. So this monitor was heavily used for a long time. The monitor is very d...

User Review

Russell C., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Summary: In spite of "cons" the price makes this a good value, hence the 4 stars. It could have got 5 stars if the condition was described better.
  • Pros: Screen looks good with no dead pixels or other artifacts. Mount works as designed. It was packed adequately and there was no shipping damage; however, it was shipped from an adjoining state.
  • Cons: I would not call this refurbished. It is better to call this corporate surplus. There was a bad scratch across the mount tray and other obvious signs of where.

Such a hassle to return

Mike K., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: This is a follow up to my previous review. I RMA'd one of these monitors and it's been a hassle to say the least. Newegg was nice enough to cover return shipping. Unfortunately I returned the monitor in the box for the 2nd identical unit I bought, so the barcode label on the box was wrong.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Refurbished, short for "We have some monitors rattling around in a box that power on, lets sell em." These are definitely not refurbished by the factory due to shoddy packaging and poor quality control.

Good Product, if its not damaged in Shipping.

David B., Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Bought 2, one was sent back for a RMA - Refund (Newegg paid for the UPS label) So much hassle to still risk a dead pixel. Should have bought one new.
  • Pros: I got it with the intention of using two in portrait mode. Very decent product for the price.
  • Cons: Poorly packaged and cables come loose potentially scratching surface.
