I have my LG monitor now since 2006 / 2007, maybe even longer. I never had to take it in for repairs in all this time, and I use it for gaming, programming and video editing. I've attached it to various desktops and laptops.
Yes it's LCD, yes it's old. But for me the great thing is that this LG product has lasted MANY years and still runs.
For the R 2,500 that I paid, it outlasted many of my desktop computers - it was one of my best buys ever in my life. I hope other clients of LG also has the same longevity with other products as well.
