5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Pristine. Not a scratch on it! Well packaged. The base has metal in it which made it incredibly sturdy. Has speakers. Using it to connect both my PC and Xbox/PS3 and it switches sources quickly.

Cons: Although it's expected for the speakers to be bad, when I plugged my headphones in they sounded pretty bad too. This did not happen when I plugged it in through the speaker system I used to use. Not sure if my ears are at fault or it's just the way it is.

Other Thoughts: Delivery guy was nice. That was a good day.

There are two ports for audio, one for DVI and another for HDMI.

Splendid technology is useless.

3 out of 5 eggsOK, but

Pros: Seems to work fine, built in speakers, reasonable picture

Cons: As someone else noted, this does not appear to be factory refurbished. My unit came with no manual, a DVI cable that does not fit the hookup on the back of the monitor (cable is DVI-A, while monitor is DVI-D) and a VERY sticky plastic covering on the screen that took me at least 5 minutes to remove. I had to peel off 1/2 inch at a time and put what seemed like a ton of force pulling it off the screen. It did come off and the screen seems no worse for wear, but it wasn't they typical peel off covering. Also the power cable had crud (looked like food) on it.

Other Thoughts: Day 1. As long as it holds up, i'll be happy.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. nice picture
2.good for games
4.built in speakers

Cons: 1. speakers a little underwhelming but get the job done

Other Thoughts: I have to say this was a good deal but be warned, this is NOT FACTORY REFURBISHED. Factory refurbished comes sealed in its own box. When I opened the package the monitor was wrapped in bubble wrap and looked "handled". After a little wipedown it now looks almost new. So far no complaints and it is working fine, but I was a little disappointed at the packaging.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap and looks good for what it is. Monitor settings menu is easy to use. Movies and games both look great to my eye

Cons: Getting colors and other setting just right can take some work when trying to get dual monitors to match exactly

Other Thoughts: First purchase of refurbished items I have ever made and seems like it was smart to me so far. Bought two of them and getting them calibrated to match isnt quite done but still overall happy. Seems like I get one thing to match and realize it made thrown some other things off. Not using the speakers on it so not sure of their quality
