Reliable Displays
« on: September 17, 2018, 05:12:23 PM »
So I'm thinking... 22 inch, 1080p capable, widescreen.

My garbage salvage display has gone off to the dumpster.

I finally looked it up, it's from 2006, and it's expected service lifetime was the length of it's warranty (1 Year). I think I got about that out of it, which is impressive, since it's many, many years after it was made.

So far it's looking like $100-$130 if I go name brand, $75 if I go with this:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sceptre-22-LED-1080p-Full-HD-Monitor-E225W-1920-Black/40718692?athcpid=40718692&athpgid=athenaItemPage&athcgid=null&athznid=PWVUB&athieid=v0&athstid=CS020&athguid=466001f5-e6e352d8-ef7c98b0ea4f0a78&athena=true


Obviously, I've never heard of this company, which is not a ringing endorsement of quality or longevity. The other poo sandwich is that it's VGA.


I lost the link for the $85 one that was DVI and HDMI. My video card is DVI or HDMI. Worked pretty good when I hooked it up to the TV. There is also some HDMI lookin bent thing, I don't know what that interface is, and don't really care.

Right now I'm using a Dell 1708fp, and the only impressive thing about it is that it detaches from it's base. It also appears to date to the halcyon days of 2006.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I had a Hyundai display like that, my aunt sold it at a garage sale when I was toiling in NJ. I lost a lot to that garage sale. She still laughs about it.

No wonder her kids don't talk to her.
