Any reason why this monitor should be avoided?
It tends to go on sale a lot for $480 new, and Bestbuy just had it for $450 last week. I just checked, and its $470 at bestbuy now.
There are multiple revisions, A00, A01, A02 and A03. A01 has a lot of problems, not HDCP compliant, etc. Mine has flickering so im working with Dell for a replacement as Newegg apparently seems to only have A01.
Bestbuy from what I hear is all A03's.
I think you're best off putting in the extra $50 and go brand new from bbuy especially if its A03.
The open box was returned for some reason. It may be user didnt like TN or had 2nd thoughts on price for a monitor.
Or it was an A01, deadpixels, any other standard issue.

Ahh. Well they do deliver, or you may be able to use it for leverage for a price match, but at that distance they may not assist.
Damn, 250miles. I've got around 4 of them I can get to within 20 mins by subway.

These are pick-up only and there's none near Cincinnati Ohio

I ended up returning mine unfortunately - as it had a few other issues anyway.

I'm unsure now what to get, but might be best to wait for the S2417DG. I like the idea of the high-pixel density at 24", and on a new panel they might not have the gamma / heavy AG coating issues.

FINALLY some movement here. Everything is approved and green lit for a brand new replacement. Just waiting on shipping department. Could go out today or tomorrow and they will try to expedite shipping for me.

I'm going to give one of these monitors a shot. I've spent nearly two hours at Microcenter looking at this monitor compared to the Asus and Acer IPS panels.

The IPS displays were not worth $300 premium.

That was my perspective. I use IPS at work and unless I guess I have a TN side by side, it's all the same to me.
And Im used to spending $100-200 for a monitor so this was already a bit of a jump for me.

So far out of the box this monitor look really good! I'm going to mess with the settings and see how they function. I plan on sinking a few hours into some games tonight and test it out. GPU powering it is a GTX 1070.

Make sure you apply the ICC profile, much better than out of the box colors! Thanks Fatty!
