Well I had 2 of these break on me after getting it for $99 at Best Buy but it's a really great monitor. Get an extended warranty!

I had one for 3 days before it broke and then returned it and the next one sadly broke after 6 months.

Wouldn't recommend getting refurbished with how poor the quality on these things will be. It'll be more of a hassle having it break constantly, and even with a warranty you'll be sending it back and forth.

Will one of these work with an Xbox One without any issues?

I've had mine for several years with zero issues and I use it a lot. I keep hoping a batch of new stock will show up at around this price. It is a great monitor and has been great playing and watching 3d in the bedroom. My only complaint is that the speakers are very lacking but considering the size and cost its not a big deal.

I forgot to mention "if the device works properly" :P

I got mine on eBay for $140+$35S&H from a small seller about 10 months ago. I'm happy with it, asked a lot of questions about the HDMI reliability which is reportedly a problem on some of these. (Another seller gave fishy answers about needing to buy new cables to make that work right so I didn't buy it from him.)
I wouldn't want to get one "reconditioned", that sounds like a recipe for trouble - like getting a refurbished Xbox 360. (I did that once in 2009, had to return it for a refund when it RROD'd about 3 weeks later, I'm never making *that* mistake again.)

Mine from Best Buy still works great! Only problem is the headphone jack gives off quite a bit of white noise. I just use a grounder and it clears some of that up. Bought a warranty on Square Trade and if it dies anytime between now and Fall 2015, I'll be getting $180 back (since I bought it on sale, the $180 was the cost to buy a new one at the time).
