Thread: How often should one expect

  1. #1
    to replace a flatscreen monitor for your desktop. Mine flat-out will not work anymore. It's only about 16 months old!

    NO CLUE, still working on the same 20" CRT 8 yrs later
    you sure it's not the video card?
    have you plugged the monitor into another PC?

    How's it going SK! CRT's I think last forever. I know the life for flat panels are much shorter, but I wasn't expecting to have to purchace another one so soon. I'm using my old CRT right now and it's a strain on the eyes.

    We've been running LCDs where I work for a few years and have had better reliability out of them than CRTs. Of course, we only run low end equipment here.

    Generally LCDs last longer then any other monitors. Crt's are good, but after time will lose their phosfors (sp?) which causes them not to be as brite. I dont see any reason a LCD shouldnt last over 5 years.
