would buying a refurbished 27" LCD on ebay be crazy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a perfectly working 24", but thinking of getting something bigger

just checked ebay and they have among others "Manufacturer refurbished", or so they claim, 27" samsungs for pretty cheap

If I only wanted a monitor to last another 1-2 years til the next upgrade anyway, I should consider refurbished right? its from a top rated seller with +250 sold, so that should be pretty safe?

what resolution is the 27"? I assume this is a TN panel?

fyi - id rather get an 24"+ IPS or 27" 120hz monitor (depending on budget)...im not a fan was spending money on hardware which " last another 1-2 years"..but that's me.

I bought a Dell U2711 refurb on ebay in January and it has been excellent.
Absolutely no complaints at all and it shows up on the Dell warranty website as being shipped 01.13.2011 with 731 days remaining on the warranty

If you choose a reputable seller, pay through paypal so you have some protection and use some common sense it's hard to go wrong.

Crazy awesome! As long as it was a highly reputable seller and accepted returns, I wouldn't hesitate to buy refurbished off ebay.
