    I agree, $50 would sound about right.

    it depends on if its VGA or SVGA. VGA is older and usually wont run new games right (screen is distorted). SVGA is newer and is what all new CRT monitors are. so i wouldnt buy it if it was VGA.

    You gotta factor in shipping tho, $50 is a good price but it'll cost a whole lot to ship it.

    Sceptre makes all right quality monitors. I would expect to pick it up less than $50 though, unless it is flat screen with a great picture.

    You can buy them new for as little as $70-80 anymore. Then if you have to factor in shipping etc... Sounds like a sour deal.

    I'd pay 40 tops.. Maybe 35. I usually pay people $10 for used 17". Nicer ones I offer them $15. Then I sell them for double / triple the price, depending on the condition.

    The shipping is only driving over to the seller's house, I live just a few miles from him.

    So, <50 is my offer, I think
