Does a monitor last longer than a TV?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im asking this because ages ago my warfedale 22" HDTV broke within less than 2 years of use, It was used for everything (xbox pc and tv) and i would always turn it off when not in use.

But im sure that monitors last longer because there built diffrently (i think?) currently got a iiyama prolite e2208hds 22" And im not thinking about changing it anytime soon

They can, and they cant, Most TV's these days are built cheaply and the most conmen cause of a TV dying is a blown capacitor, but monitors on the other hand are usually built with solid components, however this can very on the brand you chose.

modern things are built cheap. Long gone are the days or CRT televisions lasting 20+ years.
Now you're lucky if something lasts 5-years.

I will say though, I had a phillips 42" Plasma HDTV from 2004 that my brother is now using. It was $8,500 new (yes, EIGHT-THOUSAND Dollars). Now it has PSU issues and 4 dead pixels.
Lame considering you can get 10+ year old TV's for Free on craigslist without a single issue.
