[ad#review968-top]High Definition (HD), is the new thing. Everyone wants an HDTV, a Blu-ray player, Sony PS3, etc. With all of these components why not have an HD computer monitor as well?

Since this is a refurbished monitor it did not come in the retail packaging, instead it came in a plain box. Inside though it was nicely protected with large pieces of Styrofoam and plastic. There was no physical damage to the box at all.
Inside the box you will find the monitor of course, power cable, DVI cable, audio cable, and the quick start CD. Interestingly enough there was no HDMI cable supplied.
