I'm not interested in Open Box items because I always wonder why the item was returned in the first place.
Plus, the one and only Open Box item I ordered from Newegg was a monitor identical to mine (it was for a friend). When we set it up, the reason why it was returned became very clear: it just didn't look very good. Fortunately for him, he had to mount it at such a height where this flaw was invisible from where he sits, so he kept it. However, it's still visible to him if he's looking at it while standing (when he is at the same height as the monitor).
Besides, someone here on OCN is selling this DirectCU II for $395 shipped, and it looks like it's in mint condition - except there's no retail box.

Yeah, I am trying to be a good boy and wait and see how I like the performance of my 470 after upgrading to Sandy Bridge. I'm imagining I'll be pretty impressed.
