From people who have it, does it seem like a product that would last a while like a regular monitor purchased in a store or seems to have a shorter life expectancy? I understand the risk involved into getting this kind of monitor and I am not trying to be negative about the product or the situation but I would appreciate to hear what people think about that.
I know some people have had the chance to experience with them for a while and even some with multiple units and I would appreciate the feedback.
With my experience on my monitors, if you want to use these monitors for a long time, you're going to first get better stands (or at least take really good care of the ones included), and keep them clean/dust free.Compared to a monitor "purchased in a store" the cheapness falls in the housing of the panels. At least with my monitors, the bezel is warped in a few areas, but the panel itself flawless.
So, the way I see it, you will get as much time out of these monitors are you are willing to put in... sort of... you get my point
Seems like the early models with the LG boards as well as the display were great, not so hot now judging by all the problems. Hopefully this is just a bad batch to be worked through!
I ordered mine from BCC just recently and I received two perfect monitors.
