great value, plugged in and it worked great!

 

If you are looking for a great 24" price-point monitor, this is for you. If you need bells and whistles, you are going to need to fork out more $$$

bright screen, clear and great viewing

price point monitor only has DVI/VGA ports, does not have HDMI or any USB ports.

Very nice

 

Amazing deal on a really good monitor. The display is awesome, I have never had a monitor this big, and I love it. For refurbished it looks brand new to me.

I really do not like the stand. For the size of this monitor I don't feel like it really gives it enough support and it seems pretty unstable.

Looks great

 

Large Screen. Clear Picture. Thats all

Pixels on one of the 2 monitors has started going out after 7 months of ownership. I expect these to last longer than that but if its all ready going out then i dont believe it will last long

Good Monitor

 

Nice bright wide screen. Stand is very well balanced, doesn't feel like it could tip easily. Was shipped quickly and works great so far

only a minor thing, it came with a VGA cable, but luckily I had an adapter
