    The dealer definitely didn't know if these were good or not. I got a bargain on these because I was standing there when they unloaded the truck and spilled the load including the two monitors. One had a couple of big chips knocked out of the case and both were scratched up. He offered me both of them on the spot for $5 and I had to pick them up from where they had fallen. I figured that I couldn't go wrong for that price!
