Great price but would not buy refurb on this as it MAY have been in service for 5 or more years already! For some reason they are still available new, and at great prices around $129, and often as low as $100 with coupon deals. Someone in a previous deal mentioned they are still being manufactured because it is a classic well-liked monitor for business/professional use. It was originally a $300+ monitor, so I don't understand how they can be making them new and selling for $100. These are very solid professional monitors, not at all the same as the typical cheap-monitor specials. (someone usually asks.)

Maybe the margins were very high at the beginning of the production cycle, or, more likely, the production costs have come down significantly. I wouldn't know, just guessing

Yeah, it's a mystery. I'm not 100% sure are still being manufactured but one comment in another thread mentioned production dates as late as 1-2 years ago. Which is still amazing for a year 2012 model. It says something about the good reputation of this monitor that they are still in-demand (especially at this price.)

The "refurb" might be fine, it all depends on the condition. Sometimes "refurb" just means "old stock" or "damaged box" or something like that. If you are lucky, it would be an even better deal at the refurb price.
But I bought some used off-lease Dell monitors (not this model), and they were definitely heavily used and had odd defects that I didn't notice within the short return window (power supply glitches on/off at certain temperatures on one, weird uneven light in part of panel on another.) Also keep in mind that paying return shipping on something as big as this can cost you $40 or more, so have to weight that risk in with a purchase you might return.

There was a new one at Staples for $105 few days ago - the coupon may still be valid here is the thread. Dell still manufactures them.

Basically it's a higher end product line than their entry level stuff. An old answer from Dell:

"The Ultrasharp are considered our performance displays in contrast to the entry displays. The Ultrasharp performance displays will have HAS (Height adjustable stands), USB ports, wide viewing angle panels (PVA or IPS), multiple inputs which may include composite, s-video or component. The entry displays are very basic with TN panels, VGA and DVI inputs and a fixed stand."

Had a pair of these for a few years now, fantastic monitor. I love the 16:10 aspect ratio and wish more it was offered in more models.

Got mine... manufacture date 2013!!

Looks and works fine though.

I wonder exactly what is "refurbished" when they refurbish these?
