Default That 17" was working. Why did he/she throw it out?

On our way home from the hospital, I noticed that a screenwas there alone in the rain. We turned around to check it. Turns out is is an Optiquest from Viewsonic and model is V775.

I cleared the most out of water with kleenexes and let it sit there for the night to dry. This morning, I power it on. Seems that it works from eye. I plug it in the video port, power up my Dell and bam! It's displaying.

So, the question remains: Why throwing out a nice 17" screen?

It's awesome BTW

Good one, yes lots of people are not that worried about making a few bucks on the side, when they have the chance to upgrade their monitor. i say if you can't sell it, then give it to your local goodwill :P

Well, it usually comes when the night before garbage day is occuring. You will find stuff in there. It's like a garage sale...just free and ful of crap.
And that monitor was just there, all alone...nothing else around it.

@Nate: Garbage day...check the night before.
