Hey all, I’m looking to buy a new monitor that will primarily be used for homework, some photoshop stuff and the occasional game, so I’m not looking for anything crazy. I’ve found this LG 20-inch for a decent price, what are your guys’ opinions on it?:
It has nice specs for a decent price, but I’m not familiar with LG’s reputation with their LCD monitors. Also, have any of you purchased an “open box” item from NewEgg before? The
“open box” version is $160 compared to the [URL=“http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005096”]regular version’s $220. According to NewEgg,
The entire risk as to the quality and performance of these items is with the buyer. These items have been tested for functionality, but may have superficial physical defects including (but not limited to) scratches, dings or dents. Should these items prove defective following their purchase, the buyer (not the manufacturer, distributor, or
Newegg.com) assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing or repairs, unless otherwise required by law. These items are not covered by any 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
I don’t know if those risks are worth saving $60. Thoughts?
I have an LG flatron and love it, but if you can get a Samsung go for it.
Syous, why would you go for a Samsung over an LG?
Maybe it’s just me, but my experience with Sammy isn’t great. Their plasmas are hideous, and their LCD monitors are OK, but imo don’t seem to be quite as nice a picture as an LG counterpart.
