I've gotten tons of stuff like that from my last two employers - offered to
test and/or repair for some overtime but they just wanted to get rid of the
stuff. I presently have a Dell 17" monitor I use in the shop that was thrown
out by day shift and I reclaimed - needed a tweek on the brightness pot and
it's been fine for the last year. Like wise I got 2 4.3gb Microplis SCSI
drives that were "defective" but only needed someone that knew how they are
supposed to be terminated to make them work right. They're my main drives
for my RAID array in my Dell 486 server (with Kingston Turbochip 133).
