Default price check on Samaung 305 T plus and benq xl2420xt

I have a 4 year old 30" Samsung 305T plus 2560x1600 5 ms response monitor. It recently had the inverter board replaced under Samusung warranty for the green haze problem these were notorious for. Apparently the new board is a revised one that runs cooler. Was wondering how much these go for now. No dead pixel, a tiny 1 mm scratch on the anti glare film on the lower right side cant notice it.

I also have a Benq xl2420tx 120hz 3D monitor with built in emitter and a pair of nvidia 3D glasses to go with it. Was bought for the purpose of 3D gaming but apparently I am one of the 10% of the population that cant see 3D due to bad stereo vision. Monitor is flawless, how much do these go for now?

I am in that demographic as well.

You should still be able to enjoy 120hz smoothness though.

No idea on prices.

$600-800 has been the range I've seen.

I agree $600 - $800. The 305T is in my opinion one of the best monitors ever made. I have two and if you were local, I'd buy it for Surround.

I bought a 305T here at HWC from oppo4sale not long ago. I paid $650... too bad he never shipped it to me!

For $400 it is a steal IMO. Amazing preset color profile.....but remember there is NO OSD.
