Don't you just love
them Chinese monitors!.
I have an HP 17" LCD screen in front of me, that was made in the US.
Can't beat good American workmanship!.
I've had 3 China made monitors blow out on me in 3 years, usually it is the Switch-mode PS Chip that goes.
I'm just sick of it!.
This monitor cost me a dollar or two, but hey, I hope it out-does the other 3 I've had.
All 3 monitors have had a 3.15A ceramic fuse protecting them, but not once has the fuse blown, when the SM chip blew (destructively).
