One is open box, probably used before, the other is straight from the manufacturer hence the price variation.

Well theres usually some sort of guarantee that comes with open box items, so I think they're safe to use, but I usually go for new stuff, just because I prefer when I'm the first one to use the things I buy, but if you're pressed on money, the cheaper one wouldn't perform differently than the brand new one.

get the new one. open box stuff usually is either: loaded with crap, or doesn't work. and the screen might have dead pixels, so it was returned.
