Need a cheap monitor for reading NOT gaming

emschaub 16 10 September 5, 2015 at 11:34 AM
I need a monitor for work, not for gaming, to use at home for a second screen. Would prefer at least 23" and widescreen, my work laptop has both VGA and Displayport. I mostly need a second screen to have open so I can read a PDF while I write.

I found a recent deal on Newegg for the ASUS VS248H that is $119 after the $20 promo code and $20 rebate. Is this a good deal for what I need or could I find something cheaper that would fit my needs? I don't want a crappy monitor but also don't need the specs for gaming.

My wife told me to just go to Goodwill, but I'm VERY hesitant to get a used monitor (Especially if it has no been refurbished). Should I search Ebay or should I just wait for a Woot deal? Any thoughts/suggestions?
