So far so good.
Pros: Great screen, arrived with only one mark in it about 1/8th the size of a pencil eraser. I was worried it would be some dead pixels but once I fired it up it vanished. Maybe it was my imagination? Great resoultion for the size. Was worried about gaming performance but I haven't noticed anything off-putting as of yet. That being said I have not played any fps on it.
Cons: This doesn't go against Newegg but the previous owners had all the settings maxed out...sort of like a kid turning all the knobs up on his stereo because he thinks more is better. It nearly burned a hole in my eyes. Once I downloaded the HP Assistant software from HP and got it all calibrated, the colors were beautiful.
Overall Review: This isn't a con as much as it is a note (as it is used afterall): mine registered 17,000 hours usage but only 740 hours backlight time. Minor cosmetic wear on the bezel, but I rarely find myself staring at those things when I'm working or gaming. 4.5 Eggs-I deducted half an egg because I highly doubt these were "re-" anything. Looks like they bought a lot at auction or something and threw them quickly into boxes with light packing...but IMO it was good enough. So far so good, will post later if anything comes up. Thanks Newegg-
