Yea. I wouldn't trust it. You could easily have some dead pixels and there is no warranty on it. From what I read it's a refurbed HP that had the HP name dropped so they have no association (support, warranty, etc.) with it. It's really the only 24" I've seen for $200 though, so you be the judge.

Can you recommend me 22" monitors for ~200 and 24" ~300


I have a q6600 (stock), hd 4870, and 2gb of ram.

What option would be best for me? Will the 24" make my graphics card wanna cry or is it a good enough card to play the latest games at 1900x1200?

I saw Asus's 24" monitor floating around NewEgg for $245 and a $35 MIr not long ago, if you just look for a good deal or wait for one to spring up then you'll be golden

$287 USD for a Dell 23" @ 1080?

How is that outrageous? I thought it was kinda cheap...

I have this monitor. I love it, but there is a little light bleed from the top and bottom, but not noticable when when playing games, or in windows, or watching a movie with black lines. The only time your kinda of notice it is when your are watching full 1080p movies. but still then your dont notice it for under 300 bucks.

- there is an open box one for 220. thats a steal.
