Hello friends,

Finally i made up my mind to ditch my CRT, before it ditch me.

The monitor should be a wide screen (16:9 or 16:10), and warranty should be good.

i prefer buying online , so any links will be very helpful.

So guys, hit on, pour in your words.

TIA

aww.come on.. how much slimmer will it possibly get than the LCD.. are u saying u gonna have space issues with a thickness diff. of say about an Inch or something?? especially, why be so obsessed with slimness in this budget???

i thought people wanted LED coz its brighter and has a wider viewing angle!!!

AOC has only one year warranty which makes dell a no brainer ,

Previously CRT monitors were highly reliable , mine lasted for 8 years ! .

But nowadays dead pixels and all sort of problems are there , plus dell's service center is smooth .

And in case you go for a Dell , straightaway use a DVI digital cable , if you ' re planning to use it on VGA

Trust me I have it , its not worth it .

Dont know if this post helps as you already seem to have decided

but anyways cheers n congrats

Yes I am using the same monitor . HD movies look awesome ! . Though I havent seen samsung or any other monitor so cant compare . It's awesome till it works ,

But as usual am an unfortunate person , having random dead pixels already ! .

Just bought it in 16 december . I contacted dell and initially for my argument they agreed to replace with a new piece because I just bought the monitor a couple months ago but now again on another call they told me may be I will be getting a replaced one .

This is disheartening . Lets see how it goes ! .

But hey you are not me so you can go for it , one more point , dont be surprised if the brightness is kinda blinding first time


Reduce it , this is the case with all monitors . They are very bright even at stock 75 % settings .

Btw I dont know if am wasting ur time because am sure you do your research , but no harm i guess .

Cheerio

#harry_houdini, hey mate you are not wasting my words, these words for a user are valuable in my research.

Right now i am thinking of getting this.

I doubt if i will be getting it locally, so i will have to get it from dealers or from letsbuy, buts isn't the chance of getting one with dead pixel increase in these case, as i can't personally check the monitor before packing.

Yes thats right , but if aint available locally then I guess you should take a chance from letsbuy .

See if you can get coupons , though i looked for them but currently cant find any .

Before there used to be 5 % or 10 % off ones .

Dead pixels sometimes dont appear easily ! , you can use the software called " Dead Pixel Buddy " to make it easy to find dead pixels . But it will consume time and I dont think any dealer will allow such time or opportunity for you to check so long .

So I guess you have to take a chance . I am not for extending budgets because a person can keep on extending budgets for everything n ...


If i were you I would have saved some bucks and waited a couple of months so budget is not upset and gone with Samsung and then Dell . See the comparison ratio of Dell and Samsung monitors having a problem and you ll know what am telling , why dont you put up a poll here . But again Samsung one is expensive but a good margin . So go for Dell .

But I guess Dell will whitewash Samsung in a few years , dell monitors are flooding the market !! .

But again Dell's service seems very good even if they might give a replacement monitor, lets see how it goes . If you wanna know I ll tell you after I get my Replacement .

Hope its a new one !! .

If i were you I would have saved some bucks and waited a couple of months so budget is not upset and gone with Samsung and then Dell as a second priority . See the comparison ratio of Dell and Samsung monitors having a problem and you ll know what am telling , why dont you put up a poll here . But again Samsung one is expensive but a good margin . So go for Dell .

^ thats because you quoting your post as well.

I can't wait becasue, my current CRT is showing signs, can't risk it. So i will buy within this week itself. I am think of getting it from LSB, but sadly there is no coupons available:(
