This is one good looking monitor. Tempted to get an external tv tuner and turn it into a tv.

I have this monitor. Worth every penny!

These are the ones with the goofy stand. Many reviewers have had issues with the base design. The connectors are in the base, which means you need to have more open space behind the monitor for cables. Mostly, though, people with base issues have bases that aren't quite strong enough.

Because the base is kind of funky, it means the monitors are getting cheaper. So for the same amount of dollars, you get a nice clear, and larger screen, than you would have, had you opted for something a little more mechanically robust in the same price range.

Weren't these around $120 the last time? Or is my memory failing me?

@mnerd: That will work fine as an alternative to a TV, as long as you have external speakers and something to plug them into, because this monitor doesn't do audio.

[For the record, I watch TV on a computer monitor plugged into the cable box. It also has no audio. I have speakers and wireless headphones plugged into the cable box.]

@hamjudo: Does this mean you can't remove the base and use a standard VESA mount?

@tsfisch: Look at the pictures. They mount it on the wall by folding the base, and mounting the base to the wall.

It is an "unusual" design.

Mounting a computer monitor on the wall is not very ideal. Too bad the base sucks so hard, I would have liked to mount these on a multi-monitor stand, but I guess that's why they ended up here.

I bought one of these when they were a woot deal about two months ago. I got the white version. It looks beautiful. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. It never has. Right out of the box the screen malfunctioned and wouldn't hold a picture, constantly shutting down and restarting after briefly showing a totally messed up image. It arrived broken, despite the documentation that came with it saying that it was refurbished and passed inspection.

I called up the manufacturer because it comes with a warrantee. The manufacturer insisted that I had to send it back to them on my dime, and also to provide shipping costs for when they were going to ship it back to me after they tried to fix it (again, for the second time). So basically I have to pay $50 shipping for a $100 monitor that should have worked right the first time.

I wouldn't wish this monitor on my worst enemy. Ok, maybe I would. But only if my worst enemy had to pay shipping both ways, too.

Good deal, but I refuse to buy a computer monitor that's 1920x1080.. I'll stick with 1920x1200. The vertical height resolution limitation when trying to view documents/emails/websites is very annoying.

@wiretap: I'm viewing this right now, on a 1080x1920 monitor. It is obviously not the one on sale here, as there is no trivial way to rotate that screen.

I'm always a fan of a good inexpensive monitor.

There are many aftermarket stands on the market (or they are not too difficult to build) assuming this has any sort of standard mount.

@nklb: This does not have any kind of standard mount. That's why it is so cheap. (that and reliability, my AOC monitors have been fine, but I don't have this exact model.)

5-Stars on amazon. $132.73 to get it brand new compared to $104.99 for this refurb.

It looks like there are 2 models e2243FW and FWK and am not sure which this one is however they appear to be identical spec wise. Perhaps just one black and one white?

Anyone know exactly how this wall mounts? I can't find any information on it. Do I just put a few screws in the wall that it hangs by?

vote-for6vote-against

@benstommes: The cnet review says that it has the standard VESA screw holes on the bottom of the base, rather than in the traditional spot on the back of the monitor.

Did anyone notice that it doesn't show "refurb" on the listing here? It only shows it on the actual Moofi page. I always get voted down if I don't mention it somewhere in the description. :)

@benstommes: here's a user pic from someone on buzzillions with 2 of these on a dual monitor stand

Aaaarrrgh! I picked a couple of these up from Best Buy a few weeks ago, just paid a little more. Oh well!

I'm loving them so far... dual 1080p displays = AWESOME, and they've worked / looked great so far!

Aaarrrrrgghhhh!!!!!! Got my monitor today... dead pixel, about 3/4 of the way across the screen, almost dead center. Don't they look at these things when they are "re-certified"?
