LCD used or new


#1

i have a question for guidance ... im short on budget n need a gud new/used lcd of a gud n decent size .. min 19" i hope u ppl must have some decent advices ... dnt just come with big difficult terms .. just tell me wats gud for normal computer use basically for music movies and office use should i go for a hefty new piece or an affordable 2nd hand ... i saw few in karachi used lcdz uder 10k of phillips n sony etc .. waiting for ur advice


#2

Never go for a used lcd. Too many issues. It's better IMO to buy at 17inch but new.


#3

but i have very tight budget ... i mean im short on money ... max 9k i can manage


#4

Then just wait and add more money.Trust me a brand new lcd is worth it.I purchased brand new LCD last year and it is running without any problem and there is no guarantee on used LCD

secc is right always buy brand new lcd, backlight of lcd in average has three years life but it can give you 5+ years too i have 15" Lcd bought more than 5 years ago and still working great. used one is not worth it. 19’widescreen lcd going for 12-13 thousand is worth an investment.

Btw if BenQ 19inch is selling for around 12, get it! BenQ has great screens. I wanted one too but due to lack of availability I settled with a 22inch Viewsonic. I’m not sure if I’m too happy with the results. Previously I had a 17inch Philips LCD and never noticed any pixels moving, on my new screen I began to see them since day one.

BenQ is an excellent upcoming brand.
