5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Bright and clear image. No dead pixels.

Cons: None so far (8 months after purchase).

Other Thoughts: Bought it as a backup as my original monitor was getting tired. Proved to be a good idea in only two weeks. Didn't expect such quality from a refurb. As an extra, can't beat the price!

2 out of 5 eggsUsed & Abused - Not Refurbished

Pros: Comes on when plugged in, picture quality is ok, tilt-swivel- height adjusting stand is awesome

Cons: Power button doesn't work - can't turn on/off, but it does come on when plugged in.
Filthy! Like "used on an outdoor construction site" filthy! Had a layer of "mud" across the entire screen surface. Looks like someone made a very poor attempt to wipe it down and just smeared dirt across the screen in the process. The bezel, housing, & stand were just as bad too.
Packaging is unbelievably poor. It was actually packed in a proper shipping box - but - there was nothing protecting the screen from the shipping materials (which can create rub marks) and the power & video cables were thrown loose in the box and were banging on screen during handling. No damage to the screen in my case (maybe due to protective mud coating - hah!), but buyer beware!
This was obviously a heavily used item with many cosmetic blemishes. I expect a few minor cosmetic blemishes in a refurb - but not the substantial abuse this unit has seen. The frame around the screen has multiple broken retainer clips and thus doesn't mate properly with the main case. It is particularly heavily damaged in the area around the power button (which doesn't work). None of this damage was due to shipping either. The damaged portions were actually well-protected and it was obviously placed in the shipping container this way. There is no way these flaws could be missed when the unit was serviced and they definitely should have been remediated during any refurbishment process. It may have had some repair done on it, but it is definitely not "refurbished" by any stretch of the imagination. "Has a display" does not equal "refurbished"!

Other Thoughts: If you're using this as an occasional use, back-room monitor that no one will see it is probably suitable for that purpose. Otherwise the quality of the "refurbishment" is so poor that it is unsuitable for any situation where it will be visible. I have bought many refurbished products from Newegg (including several other monitors) and they are generally indistinguishable from new products. Newegg's customer support is also first-rate when you do have an issue. However, I'd recommend passing on this particular refurbished product to save yourself the headaches of dealing with a potentially disappointing product.
In the end, I can't use this for its intended purpose and will end up purchasing another monitor to fill that requirement, but I am going to keep this one as a back-room monitor since it does produce a display and I can make use of it that way.

2 out of 5 eggsLooked good at first

Pros: It lights up and does all functions you would expect. Except...
See Cons

Cons: After a few days it good dim, dim dim. It is about 1/2 as bright as my other monitors on the system. I even changed out video cards and it doesn't help. Also changed the video input type, still dim and on the GREEN color side.

Other Thoughts: Normally refrub stuff is good, still time I wasted $100.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for price

Pros: I bought 2 of these monitors. Got one with some reservation but after using it I was surprised at how good it looked and how well it performed. Paid $75 and it was well worth that price. They come with a power cable and a VGA to VGA cable.

Cons: The first one had some lines running down the screen and it was very annoying and I almost sent it back. Then I tried a DVI to VGA cable I had lying around and it fixed the problem. I'm not sure if its the cable or my GPU but it was fixed by changing the cable. The second I used the same type of cable from the get go so not sure if it has the same problem.

Other Thoughts: For $75 shipped I have no complaints. Its only 1680x1050 but its a 22" wide screen monitor that displays great and all buttons work and no apparent damage to the bezel like some users have stated.

2 out of 5 eggsnot impressed with refurb

Pros: The second refurbished monitor I received has a functioning power button. The bezel was damaged around the buttons but all appeared to work properly.

Cons: The first refurbished monitor I received had a broken power button. The RMA process was straightforward, although the queue was almost an hour. This particular monitor has a base that clicks into place and no instructions on how to fold it again. This made sending the monitor back confusing and difficult with the original box.

1 out of 5 eggsTotally Damaged!

Pros: Stand and size are very good

Cons: Almost half of the screen is scratched pretty bad. I bought this monitor with the understanding that it is refurbished not totally damaged. My first bad experience with Newegg. Very disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsBeauty and the Beater

Pros: Took a chance and bought two of these refurbs to have a matching pair for my home office. I use these for business, not gaming so I can't comment on their usefulness for that. One looks brand new but the other looks like it might have fallen off the back of the truck. Scarred bezel plus a severe dent in the control button area. Both work great and have beautiful video though, despite the cosmetic flaws one of them has. Each of mine came with a VGA cable but no DVI or HDMI cable. I used decided to use two DVI cables that I already had on hand instead. Both monitors do have HDMI ports but I have not tested those to see if they really work. The base is already attached to monitor and folds almost flat for shipping/storage. This base allows almost unlimited up/down tilt of the screen. Base does not swivel left/right but moving the whole unit shouldn't be a problem as the part that sits on your desk is not that large - 7"x10" rectangular.

Cons: Dents around the control button area of one monitor. All buttons work now but I have a feeling they might not if I were to use them a lot.

Other Thoughts: Probably should RMA the dented one but I'm not going to bother since I might get one just like it in return. A lot of people seem to be saying their power buttons are caved in and inoperable. Be aware that these buttons are soft touch. Don't push them hard because they may cave in easily.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Monitor

Pros: Good clean display (video). Adjustable stand that is excellent. I use 3 displays on my computer and this is replacing a 9 year old display that is starting to go dim. The menu options allowed me to setup and match the existing display. Wish it had a HDMI connector.

Cons: Two minor scratches on the stand. I'm sure I could rub them out if I cared to.
The packing completely sucked. The display came in a box inside a box. The bubble wrap and packing between the boxes was excellent. The inter box had 4 of those bag/pouch like things that have went flat. The monitor had bounced all around inside and broken through the sides and ends of the inter box. I'll surprised the thing even worked.

Other Thoughts: Over the years Eggs packing has went downhill. Meaning these plastic pouch things often arrive deflated and the product arrives loose in the container. The peanut things worked much better. I don't know the cost difference but the pouches are not a plus.
Oh one other thing I ordered this thing and the next day it was 25% off. I feel like I got the shaft on that part of the purchase.
