Default Is this a steal or what?

Found this monitor at www.tigerdirect.com Was wondering if it was a good deal or not? Also Im pretty sure the quality prolly isnt the best but would it be alright, I dont know much about monitiors? I've never heard of Nokia making monitors but... well see for yourselves. I just can help but think 20 inches viewable screen for less that $150...

Note: sorry if this isnt the right forum for this. I guess it does go under hardware though...

Average. It's refurbished meaning that it's guaranteed to work like new but it is used. It's decent.

Probably decent for the price, but nothing great. It is not even flat. If you want a high end monitor, get an LCD. LCD's don't have radiation either, and it won't hurt your eyes since it is simply liquid crystals lighted up by a lamp instead of electron beams shot off into your eye like the CRTs

Thats right LCDs dont have the responace as a CRT.And you can get a much better on a big house of a computer because the flat monitors are the in thing.

I guess it's OK for the price. But I had no idea Nokia made anything besides phones.
