Is it actually possible to find a good relatively inexpensive LCD? From all the reviews I've read they each have something wrong with them. Either the lighting is too much, or there are dead pixels, or you can adjust the stand, or they're not good for DVD playback, or something or other. I'm looking for a general purpose LCD, around 19", no more than $300. |
Btw, anyone else experience that ViewSonic support sucks? Told me the wait would be 4 minutes, so I waited for half an hour, then the chick got on the phone and said that unless I had the refresh frequency set to 60Hz, the monitor wouldn't work. So I figure that's the solution and stupidly enough hang up. Of course that does nothing, so I call back, wait again... then it turns out that the resolution needs to be set to 1280x1024 because it's its native resolution, and the monitor won't work otherwise... I ask her if the monitor supports any other resolutions.. at first she says no, then she says that it does, but I'd have to set them. Huh? no shit! So anyway, I had to return the monitor (ViewSonic VA1912wb). Dunno if the model is actually good, but they gotta do something about their support.
