I recieved a new monitor at school to replace my faulty one.  It is a Dell 1907FP 19" LCD.  I liked it, so I fired up TradeMe and decided to poke around for one just like it for home.  I saw an auction for a Dell 2410 24" LCD monitor in the suggestions list that had only been bid on a few times.  I saved it, just to see were it would go.  I had never bid on an auction right up until now.

Anywho, I was super pumped when the count-down dropped into the seconds and my bid was still in the lead.  I prepaired myself to pay over 400 dollars for it.  But ended up winning it for a grand total of $260.00! Money mouth

The monitor is a year old with 2 years warranty on it in mint condition!  Best first bid ever!Surprised

Did you know that monitor (24" 2410) is only $349 NZD brand new from Dell? I believe after a year of use it wasn't bad a price - not that they are expensive anyway.

Where are you seeing that? I am seeing $1,099.  That is why I didn't expect to win it for under 400...Haha.

EDIT:  Dosn't seem as good now.  Although I swear Dell listed the G2410 as the 1,099 dollar version.  Not the U2410.
