Average life expectancy of LCD monitor? Read on...
Jan 23, 2008

Hello there!

I currently have a Samsung 971p monitor, and I was looking forward to setup a dual monitor environment, preferably using another 971p, for the sake of aesthetics, harmony, convenience and homogeneity between both images.

Unfortunately this is a discontinued monitor, and anyway I wouldn't be able to afford another new 971p

There's a shop here in Portugal that is selling one with a good discount, not only because it has been discontinued, but also because it's the shop exhibition model. As such, I'll assume it has been already turned on for a good amount of time. It doesn't have any scratches or defects, but I know it has been on for a lot of time.

My question is... how long do LCD panels last? Do you think I'll be taking too much risks in buying an exhibition model?

Thanks in advance
