Keep in mind that it's most likely a refurbished product.

If you're thinking about a clear acrylic case, you better be also thinking about some serious wire management and over-all one uber clean installation.

The only way those cases look good is if you spend a lot of time making them really, really neat.

My dad bought a 17" refurbished monitor from tigerdirect about two years ago, and he has had no problems with his.

This is the only clear case I could find under $50.

There's some better ones available if you had a higher budget.

When they go off sale and back to $70 they'll "conveniently" get more in stock. lol

This is a SUPER bad example of what you want your clear case to look like. This makes me want to smash that thing in 1000 pieces.

If you're going to have a clear case, you've got to be anal and wire sleeve absolutely everything. NEAT, NEAT, NEAT... That's the only way it looks good.

Well I found one for sixty

and know that Tigerdirect rebates suck, you either don't get them back or get them in half a year - if they're still using that crappy rebate system
