Are monitors designed to never been turned off? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
transition of electricity is not constant and spikes go through all the time and those caps are like speed bumps and build up. over time with a combination of smoke, dust etc... they swell or bust causing the monitor/laptop/motherboard to act wierd..
sure a cap is 2, 3 bucks but to take that in and have it repaired costs more than its worth.


for a regular user all that trouble can be avoided by turning the monitor off and save them money. even for me who it would cost nothing to have the monitor repaired next door, i can prevent all the hustle just by turning the monitor off.

some monitors can survive being on 24-7 others cannot. not all monitors even of the same model are built the same..











everyone should be worried about fire...

Well if you know you have poor power quality you should get a UPS. It protects against spikes momentary and sustained. (Depending on which you get)

Yea but if you have to spend 1 second every time you get up and another 3 every time you sit down to use the computer your talking a extra 4 seconds every time. I normally get up and back down to my computer 4-5 times a day..

Thats 20 seconds. 20 times 365 is 7300/60(min) 121.1111 or two hours every year waiting for my monitor to boot..

to me it makes more sense to just get a surge protector.

And no. If there is any modification to a model the model number is either changed or given another revision.

EVen if the monitor is manufactured in the same exact way with the same tools but there has been a change in management of the company. that is worth adding another revision.

Yes its that complicated.

Are you serious? Only 4-5 times?
More like 20 for me.
