Title: LCD monitor question

Anyone have any experience with Chi Mei (CMV) monitors?
Reliability and longevity issues primarily.

I never heard of them but it is odd their website is in New Zealand? :shrug:

I needed something fast, cheap and big, with reliablilty and longevity not a premium factor. The model is T38/A201P1 It's not WS, nor 4:3, but an inbetween enigma. No matter in this application. 20" at <$200 seemed a good buy. Time will tell. I may end up regretting this... it's a total throwaway if it goes belly-up.
Yeah, they DO seem popular in ausieworld! Yet they're made in Taiwan. :?:
Our state's computer distributors will buy anything from anywhere. Absolutely NO class at all! :lol:

All local computer distributors buy simply on price so your state is no different.

Initial impressions of it seem to show rather bright and somewhat crisp image, even at off-native res (within reason). It's no way pro graphics quality, but adequate enough for general purpose use.
I'll give it one of my 'Z-special' 100-hr burn in's. If it survives that, it should work for awhile... ;)

Well, it survived my little "acid-test". So I guess it'll work for awhile. This isn't indicative of all units or models, as I only have a sample of 1. :shrug:

Well that is good to hear.
