    What brand, size, & what type of monitor?
    Check the vendors' ratings.
    Check their policy.
    Check their website to feel them out.

    For the most part, vendors are pretty decent or they get booted off by the service.

    www.newegg.com is still my favorite.

    Ive had great luck with Mwave and Newegg. Newegg has the best prices and Ive been getting all my stuff from them for 2 years with no problems.

    I would imagine all of them are legitimate (Otherwise they would have probably been reported and removed), but whether they are "good" or not is a different story.

    From my experience, pricewatch does have some unreputable dealers. However, you never know until you either get first hand experience or hear from someone else's misfortune.

    Here's places that I've been fairly happy with ordering (in the US only):

    #1 on my list for prices and service:
    www.newegg.com

    Some of the others I've order from and haven't had any bad experiences from are:

    www.directron.com
    www.mwave.com
    www.tigerdirect.com
    www.axiontech.com
    www.pcmods.com


    Another computer shopping directory similiar to pricewatch is www.ibuyer.net. Their prices are sometimes slightly higher and selection seems more limited, but the quality of dealers is exceptional.
