I already bought two of these last time they were 100. TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! I even fabbed up some custom brackets so I can mount them on my dual VESA mount. Work great!

well, I got this last time it came up (couple weeks ago). I was a little sketched out, because it is dailysteals for one thing, but the debranding and all. I will just say it turned out great, fantastic monitor, fantastic price. came with both a VGA and the AC Adapter (which it didn't actually say, and when I emailed them to find out, they never replied. they have pretty crappy customer service) Also, it did ship very fast for me.

TL;DR: Fantastic buy for a great monitor, turned out great. If you have any questions about it, I will gladly answer.

Price is $210 new on newegg at the moment, so $99 shipped for a recertified seemed like taking a good risk on. Hard to argue that price point for a 23" LED monitor.

Would be in for one if it weren't Dailsteals selling them.

@moto_dave33: Could you post a pic or 2 of the mounts you made? I would buy if I could mount these somehow. Any advise you could give on making some modified vesa mounts would be greatly appreciated!

i bought one too last time, it took 10 days after purchase to finally receive it. it does not include the DVI port which comes with the hp brand, notice the power adapter is also not identical to my hp 2311x monitors, the original box is not included of course, but as far as performance it is the same.

Looking at the post above, there seems to be a conflict in the available ports. Product description clearly reads VGA, DVI, HDMI. Can somebody confirm that the monitor in this offer has all three? If not does it just come with VGA/ HDMI.... sounds odd. Thanks!

@jcarrollpe: Just got mine from the last time these were offered. Definitely has VGA, DVI, & HDMI. Tempted to buy another one.

I don't have this exact model, but last time the 23" LCDs came up for $80 ea I got two, and they were great. They're branded "famous maker", and have the HP logos replaced except for the HP pressed into the plastic on the back case, which was covered with a flat sticker. Plug them in via dvi and they auto detect as "HP 2311". There's NO reason why a debranded display would be lacking a port, I think that previous poster was confused. This LCD's good enough for me, otherwise I'd be ordering one of these right now.

The only minor annoyance I find on this one is, like a lot of other brands, a display pops up in the middle when I plug in my video cable and I have to wait for that to go away before I can use the computer. yea I know 5 seconds is an eternity ;) Still wish they wouldn't do that though.

I am a little confused though, the headline here says THESE are 2311's, and I know what i have here is 2311 and is an LCD, not an LED. You sure this is 2311/LED?

Also picked up one of these last time, great monitor! They do have DVI, HDMI and VGA. There have been numerous "2311" made, just depends on the letters that follow. These are the 2311x (LED), there is now 2311xi (IPS LED) as well.

Good catch. In looking more carefully at the data available on the internet, this model is an "LED backlit LCD". Thank you for the input.... could make a difference in the purchase, especially in the mismatched dual monitor configuration which I am considering.

Got one, thanks! So far I have not had a problem with Daily Steals - I love the Logitech Surround Sound Speaker System I purchased early this year....

@btalarczyk: Here is that bracket I made so I could mount it. But before anyone starts criticizing me for it, this is just a mock up. I will have more time after x-mas to make the real thing. Only cost me $1.00. I used the tops of two old VCR's. I folded the edges to make it stronger, cut out a spot for all the cables and drilled holes to be able to mount it to the holes you would use for the stand. Before I got them I was planning on JB welding a bracket directly to the back of the monitor, however this is much more effective and doesn't hurt the monitor.

This Second pic is both the monitors on the stand I got off Amazon for 60. The other one is pushed back because I am not using it right now. And yes, that is a Lego Batman Suit in the top left of the screen.

Ah so those are 2311's just like mine, too bad they cost more now than when I got mine here last year. Mine came with a stand though, and the monitor is so light I can just set my laptop on the desk and close the lid, and set the display down ON the laptop and it's not a problem. Yes you could use jbweld or any other two-part epoxy to attach a metal plate that had holes where the vesa mounts should be. Just take a plate of the right size, drill holes a bit bigger than the screws in the right places, and epoxy down nuts on the other side behind the holes before epoxying the plate onto the back of the display. Just be careful no to turn in the screws too deep.

They all come with stands, I just wanted to mount them. Its easy enough for anyone with the will to do so.

@jcarrollpe: sorry i meant DVI cable, it has HDMI, DVI and VGA ports

@moto_dave33: Thanks so much for the info! I have what lookes like the same dual monitor mount as you so I'm going for it! Thanks again for replying with the pictures! (I'm a visual learner)

P.S. - Props on the batman suit!

Got one of these last time they were posted on here also. Great so far! Had one dead pixel but it's barely noticeable. Was just about to get another off Amazon until this was posted. Thanks! Took about 10 or so days to get the first time
