      I'd be wary of refurbs on these monitors. I had some bad experience with Dell off-lease (not refurb, though) monitors -- they had clearly both been used for a long time and had some screen defects; one has a power supply issue and sometimes randomly flashes on and off for a while when I start using it. I know these are refurb and may be better than what I got. Unfortunately I didn't get to really use mine till after the 30-day return time.

      If you want a 24" 1920x1200 monitor (and I love that aspect ratio -- much better than the 1080 crap) -- look for 2412s (at good prices) or 2413s. I got two 2412s a few months ago for $500 ($250 each) from Microsoft Store. They were totally new in the box with full warranty; no issues at all; they have been great.

      To me, if you can get a new 2412 for $250, it's not worth it to pay $200 for an older model refurb with short warranty and possibly a lot of hours already on it.

      Rakuten... what the heck does that mean? Liked them better (and bought more stuff from them) when they were buy.com.

      Yea I agree about the name. No idea why they would change it. As for the monitors, I am a big fan of Dell Ultra sharps. But I would buy a brand new one.

      Rakuten.com is a Japanese company that bought out Buy.com, if I remember correctly.

      2412 is cheaper for a reason. It's consumer oriented vs the 2410 which was more professional oriented. 2410 has a lot more features over the 2412. If you don't need things like HDMI, component-in, audio-out (for sound bar), then the 2412 is fine. There's a lot of monitors specs also, but I won't get into that. But at this point, I'd get the 2413.

      orinlboy is correct, they were bought by a Japanese company. I've heard bad things about Rakuten and them spamming/selling your info.

      B/com had such a bad rep they had to change the name.

      Stay away from refurbs on these. The LG panels used in these and the very similar HP were notorious for green/pink shift, and dirt between the glass layers.
