    A friend is buying an AOC 17" monitor tomorrow. He is intending to get the
    AOC 7F but I see that the AOC 7Klr is only $11 dearer. What do people here
    have and is there any advantage to the dearer one? (Other than the higher
    resolution which he won't be using).

  3. They seem to have convergence problems, so it might not be wise to get one..

    That is the Flat screen ones that I am on about.

    EVERY monitor has a convergence problem. Care to elaborate.

    Never had a problem with my 19Klr. Yes I know it isnt the same size or
    model, but after 18 months of reasonably heavy use its going great. For the
    money they seem to be a good monitor and the 3 year warranty is great.

    I was the one who sent one back and replaced with the Sony. The problem was
    the right hand side of the screen had an alignment problem that could not be
    fixed. E.G a top to bottom of screen window when showed on the left side of
    screen looked fine. But drag it to the right side of the screen and and the
    aspect was way out edges were no longer straight etc.

    I don't own an AOC monitor myself. But reviews have generally been very
    complimentary about them when it comes to bang-for-buck. You may be
    pickier than a lot of buyers -- lack of a perfectly straight edge along
    one side obviously annoyed you enough to spend the extra money for a
    SONY, and that's fine, but I'm sure there are plenty of people out there
    who would think that was foolish. A top-of-the-line Sony is an
    oustanding monitor. But to be operfectly honest, the cheap ones don't
    look any better to me than a good Viewsonic, Samsung, or AOC. That's
    just my opinion, of course, and I wouldn't urge anyone to bet their
    hard-earned money on it -- I'm no more an expert than anyone else here.
    Best thing you can do, I think, is compare the specs, look for
    test-based reviews, and then just go have a look -- at the monitors and
    at your budget.

    I was hoping you'd reply John, I remember a post from you about your new AOC
    monitor. So you're still pleased with it?

    Yerr, its great, I do recommend the silve & black model, it looks much
    smarter .
    Strangly XP doesnt recognise it but Win98 did ! had one in stock in under 50 hours.

    not a very techo reply!

    The onscreen display / toggle is great.
    Resoultion is very good, oh so fine after my second hand 15 compaq

    Three year onsite warranty , great to have
    It was a bit smelly for the first 2 days as it 'toasted' the coatings
    on the tube and curcuits...

    Why spend extra money on a LCD display, all the dust is going to do is
    fall on the space behind the LCD on your desk rather then on top of
    the CRT monitor!
