Packaging
As I said in the intro this display is from Geeks.com and it is refurbished. We have received many refurbished displays from Geeks.com and we haven’t had a single issue with any of them. So when you think of refurbished from Geeks.com, don’t like beat up. The display itself comes in a normal retail box.

Opening up the box the display is nicely protected by large pieces of Styrofoam. Inside you will find the 23-inch display, VGA cable, audio cable, power cable and instructions. I really do not like that there is not a HDMI cable included.

About 10 years of computer experience. Been messing around with electronics since I was 5, got into computers when I was in highschool, been modding them ever since then. Very interested in how things work and their design.
  • This is the first time I've heard of a de-branded monitor. HP makes pretty good monitors, sorta confused why they would want to de-brand it; a lot of people will pay more for the name alone.

    HDMI cable missing?
    well I can't necessarily consider that a minus. It's simple math. For HP to include that cable means let's say if the cable were to cost 15$, 15x 1 mil units = 15 mil usd.
    I worked in a store for 3 years and I saw no TV, no DVD player nor LCD Monitor that has HDMI connectivity to actually have a HDMI cable included. There are many to consider here. Maybe for some people HDMI is not so important as they don't have anything to connect to it(I don't for ex) or some want longer cable..or better quality one..and so on…

    It's about time they made a de branded monitor. I have been singing this song for a while now at my site flat computer monitors . Great site, keep it up !

  • monitorman

    Yes they are a great unit but a little overpriced for now I think, be careful what you get in to. This is def worth a read Flat Computer Monitors

  • You say that colour reproduction on this monitor is “great” and this is the case for most monitors these days. Colour reproduction is actually a weakness in the majority of panels these days, especially TN panels. Whilst colours may be satisfying to the undiscerning eye, colour accuracy and hence reproduction is very rarely “great”. Accurate colours are the main reason some people will pay extra for an IPS panel which can be 3 or more times the price of an equivilent TN panel. Contrast on brightness on the other hand is a strength of many monitors these days, especially those with LED backlights. My the sounds of things this monitor is decent for the price, but you can get so much more for just a little extra spend.

  • Good! but price is not affordable. except price everything is ok Computer gadgets

  • Very good features and specifications. This is good to use on games, editing photos and animation, and movies.

  • Hmm. . . Seems like just yesterday I was opening a Bluray player with HDMI and component out and it came packaged only with a composite cable. . .

  • The review is really good but the price is too high in my point of view.
