Default I am so lucky!

A guy threw the monitor out and I picked it...since it was on a table. I investigated it and it was a Viewsonic 17" screen. As I got home to test it, it wouldn't power on...but I wasn't alerted...since some of my plugs are faulty. Next, I find a working cable and power it on...and i turns on. Then, as soon as I saw no input or somethin around, I knew that it was functional. I power it on with the PC and it worked. Man! a FREE 17" CRT monitor and it works like new. Now, it's lying where I put some stuff...behing me!

So a guy literally threw it out, or like, he just got rid of it? Either way, nice find!

That's always why you keep an eye in garbage. If it wasn't because of spacing issues, I would have went Dual screen baby!
