What Large Monitor (24"-26") to Buy?
Preferably a name brand.
Preferably high quality and resolution.
Preferably with Pivot feature.
Preferable currently available.
Preferably reasonable or sale priced.
The Samsung-type ToC Computer and TV (without tuner) OK. Or even with tuner, although to be used as computer monitor primarily, and also with HDTV cable STB,
(Tuners, I gather, are not needed except for Off-the-Air ATSC.)
PS. Several inexpensive (especially HP debranded on market) but would need driver (downloadable) and pivot SW (not downloadable as far as I know). These are OK, 'cause many gfx cards have pivot mode.

De-Branded 24" HP Pivot Monitor
is on sale as a "refurb" (probably just a discontinued brand-new Overstock) at several places for $329.
HP Monitors usually get good reviews, but I doubt the CD with drives &SW is included. No problem, download the newest drivers and solve the pivot SW somehow.
Just want to know the options before I make the plunge.

Refurb means someone took it home - didn't like it and sent it back.“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

This is so as not to compete with its Resellers who are selling the new model at much higher price. The HP monitors are being sold in too large numbers to be just returns, unless they are unsold returns from its resellers, who are now carrying the newer model.

That could be true. Companies like Dell are reqired to mark new parts as refurb if they take em out of an original box and resell them.“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

I would rather like you to look for expert reviews of the products that meet your criteria. Usually, these reviews have accompanying Monitor Ratings which will be your basis as to the quality of the item that you're going to choose. This is a good measure to obtain the best value for your money in my opinion.
