I dont often write reviews since it takes taime to do so, and spare time is something I have little of ... I'm sure you can relate to that. The only reason I wrote this review is because items with no reviews make buyers (like me) hesitant to make the...

This was a good price on a good monitor. We have other Samsung monitors that were purchased new. This one was refurbished. It works great, looks new.

So I have been putting off buying a much needed upgraded Montor for years. The price had been way too high for a 20+ inch ones. But now a days things have changed and the price is more managable. So I bought this online and I'm so glad I did. The...
