IT hardware that has been refurbished by the manufacturer or dealer is referred to as refurbished. Most of the devices come from industrial leasing, are demo devices or exhibits. However, the differences in the quality and preparation of used IT hardware are very large. Only a high quality standard in preparation and service promises long joy with the purchase of used IT hardware.

Refurbished monitors - NO PIXEL FAULTS at Uli Ludwig

All refurbished monitors are checked for pixel errors. Our PIXEL ERROR FREE test* includes all hardware-related pixel errors and includes the standard check of the monitors with the EIZO test program as well as testing for pixel errors and sub-pixel errors, spots, irregular color gradients or annoying background noise until we find a monitor in A-Ware quality for you that is free of errors.

For some monitors such as Dell U2410, the REV numbers are read out. The different REV numbers indicate the version and firmware of the monitor. The higher the REV number, the younger the screen. New revisions often fix minor bugs. Monitors with pixel defects and other mechanical defects are sold as B-goods quality exclusively in the shop after inspection.


* Excluded from the PIXEL ERROR FREE test are perceptual, software and thermal pixel defects
