FOCUS 40 BLUE $1000

This display has been gently used. It was purchased for me by my employer, and I did turn it on to try it and test the connectivity to my devices. The purpose was for me to use at work, but the office was so fast-paced, that I never had the time to learn the proper keystrokes and put them to use, so continued to use my U2 Mini. I have probably had it on for a total of an hour at most. Otherwise, it has been faithfully waiting at home in its polyester case. It needs a good home, now that I am retired. It comes in its original box, and I can include the appropriate USB cable, and have the original plug adapters. Free shipping, only in the U.S. For further questions, feel free to e-mail me at Sonshines59@gmail. Paypal accepted.
