Would it be ok to get a recertified monitor?

Thread Starter 
I want a second screen.

Which should I get? Both are same, one is just recertified.

Opinions?

I bought a "refurbished" Viewsonic off of Ebay about 4 years ago and it still works wonderfully today.

No harm in saving some money smile.gif

I bought an Acer 19" refurbished LCD at CanadaComputers 3 years ago, had a solder burn on the screen when I took it out of the box and inspected it...I returned it as soon as I found out and they said they didn't have any stock of it anymore...was forced to add $50CN to get a new one. I had to travel for 2 hours back and forth from my house to their store...I will never buy a refurbished screen anymore...just sharing my experience.

I have bought several refurbished items before like my Z8612 P&S Digicam and Logitech X540 and they work fine...so make sure the pics the seller took are clear so you can inspect the item before purchasing.

Nothing wrong with doing that. I bought 2 Samsung LCD Tvs about 4 years ago that were refurbished and they still work great.
