Out of the Blue

My new monitor arrived yesterday, Newegg did a good job of getting that here quickly, especially since I didn't upgrade to the cheapo shipping. I suffered a pang when I peeked at their new flyer this morning and saw this monitor is now on sale for close to $50.00 less than I paid. Oh well, it wasn't hugely expensive to start with (I'm pretty sure it was the least expensive monitor I've ever bought), and the joy of not having one of my monitors constantly flickering feels priceless.

I always buy from Newegg, but some sort of brief price guarantee would be nice. I do try to buy monitors from a brick & mortar, to avoid dead pixel return issues. I did grab a tv from the egg recently, though, and no problems.

I hadn't really considered the dead pixel issue... it's been a long time since I've had one, but that is a good point. Luckily this one is fine too, which means no dead pixels on my last three monitors, two of which have 2,304,000 pixels, and the other has 4,096,000.
