    I say do it if its in decent shape and works without problems. You probably won't beat that deal anywhere else.

    Tell us where it is. Tell us if there are MORE of them!

    I wouldn't do it, I got ripped off for a 20" ACD and that was priced at $299.00 luckily I got my money back via Paypal claim.

    I'd steer clear of it.

    YMMV

    That seems like way too good a deal. Make sure you do a bit more homework on who's selling it, the condition it is in, etc before purchase.

    its a local thing so i would get to check it out before i handed over my cash. he says there is a "smudge" mark that you can see when its off, but can't notice when its on

    anything in particular i should check for? i figure i'll just plug it in and see what it looks like (i need the little adapter right?)

    Scratches (screen and case), dead pixels, whether or not the ports work, whether or not the controls work, whether or not the backlight is good anymore...

    Seriously, if he has another one, I'll pay shipping to get it wherever it needs to come from.
