Is this monitor worth buying?

After searching around on the internet for a 144hz monitor, I stumbled upon what looks like to be a great deal. It has freesync, 1 ms response time, (and of course) 144hz. And the thing is, its only $130! Is it worth buying it, or is it a scam?

Look for site/store reviews to see if it's a scam. As for the monitor, it says that it's refurbished. Still seems like a good price, but I couldn't bring myself to purchase a refurbished screen.

If you have Amazon prime to get the free shipping deal on it, then I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

If not....

Its refurbished, that means it was used, and sent back to the manufacturer.
