24″ 1920×1200 pivoting LCD monitor $210 refurb »

[UPDATE 18 Feb 2009: They are all out of monitors, sorry! – T]

I tried to resist, but broke down and ordered one myself. Normally I don’t talk about hardware, nor directly shill for products. But I figure this will be of interest to a fair chunk of my readers…. But it probably won’t be around for long.

Now, this monitor is refurbished, but still, it’s an awesome deal at $209.99 including shipping: a refurb pivoting 24″ 1920×1200 widescreen LCD monitor. Pivoting means that you can rotate the screen to switch between landscape and portrait orientation.

They say in the ad it’s “comparable to” the HP monitor, but sources say that it’s literally the same monitor, that if you peel off a bit of tape on the back, there’s the HP logo (or in some cases there’s just a little block missing where the logo would have been inserted). PC Magazine reviewed the HP-​branded version a year ago.
