    Fast question to you all.

    I'm looking at buying an HP TS-20W7. The site I'm looking at has it as "debranded" for $140. What does that mean? I know it's not going to have the HP logo and that's fine, but should I be worried about quality?

    Well a little Google searching turned up info several places that defines HP debranded as an HP monitor that has been refurbished by a third party company with all HP references removed/covered. Results were mixed, and one noted the crappy packaging ( http://www.bigbruin.com/2008/geeksmonitor_1 ) so I guess it is on a case by case basis since you don't know who actually did the rebuilding, etc.

    I just wanted to say that I took a risk and bought the monitor. Actually, the 22" edition. :)

    I must say it is pretty nice. It came about 2 hours ago and I can't see anything wrong with the picture of display. I'll post a picture or two once I clean up my desk.

    However, I do give it two thumbs up. The w2207 is one very nice monitor.
