What's the life in Hours of a LCD, TFT and a CRT Monitor
Which is the best in tems of longitivity...
LCD/TFTs also suffer from dead pixels.
Can be due to age or otherwise.
They are also not covered under warranty.
Plus, the monitor loses resale value in such conditions.
Be certain to check for these when you are buying a new monitor.
As a rule, cheapos develop dead pixels with greater ease.
P.S. Your colored mobile is also prone to develop such problems.
As such the frequency of dead pixels is variable and don't necessarily mean your monitor is dying. but they are irritating if noticeable and cannot be repaired.
CRTs, you can tell when the picture tube starts failing to deliver , you get all sorts of problems with color, brightness or contrast ; picture may be shaky or it just dies all of a sudden.
CRT picture tubes usually last 7 years or so and certainly die after 10 years(more often than not).
LCDs manage 10 years plus without many problems (if its branded).
are TFT LCD use and throw !! can they be repaired also
dead pixels can't be repaired.
There is an excellent parallel thread on how to buy an LCD in this forum
thanks for the link!!
If one has got some good warranty plan, then one can get a replacement on that monitor. I'm not sure if dell does this, but Sony offers replacement on their ClearBrite tech monitors if it has 7 or more dead pixels....
