Nice monitor but poor reliability.

Whilst the PC system has been excellent, I have been very disappointed with ther monitor's reliability. The monitor itself gives an excellent picture. The visible screen size of 15.9 inches is great.

My local Gateway store from whom I bought the PC system basically said "hard luck - but we can supply you with a new monitor at £199.75 including VAT"!!! I rang several local Computer repair centres, who unanimously told me that regardless of what was wrong, monitors were not repairable!!! They all offered to sell me a new 17 inch monitor at prices ranging from £149 to £189. I visited several PC supermarkets, and decided that the best bet was a MBO e-Tron 770, available in Makro at £99.99 + VAT.
