anyone satisify their Cierco 17" LCD from FS???!

this LCD sux, i got 2 of these on boxing day, one with two dead pixel on the side and backlight is not balanced, the upper part is darker, then the other one is a dead pixel right in the middle and again, the backlight is not balanced, both side are too bright, you can actually see white light comes from the edge of each side, and the upper part again is dimmer... SUX!!

I wrote a review of this product on FS website, but they never put my comment on their website..

good luck for the rest of the buyer!!

i recommend BenQ 757-16. Just got mine few days ago for $350 before the $50 Mail in rebate. It looked great and got a sleek design. so just go check it out.

why the heck would you buy a FS brand LCD?

step up to either a Samsung or BenQ

St-Fabien de Panet, …
The industry standard for lcd screens states up to 8 dead pixels is acceptable for a new monitor :-0 Most stores will let you exchange for a new one though. I bought a refurbished 15" NEC LCD1545V from <a href=../autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28 target=_blank>NCIX</a> a few years ago, and got 1 dead pixel. Barely noticeable on bootup with black background,and still works very well.

I got the nec lcd1765 when it was on sale refurbished... got one from CC and another from FS the CC one had 1 dead pixel the FS didnt so i kept the FS one. The white was not ballenced also but i believe i installed some software that fixed that. Plus it wasnt the noticiable anyways only when you stand above the LCD. Id say return that and find your self a quality brand LCD on sale.

You know there's probably a reason it was on sale. :lol:
