Got a 17" LCD Monitor

Link: http://ubersoft.net/d/20050823.html

It might seem odd being laid off, and buying a new monitor. But, the rationale is that it'll be easier to move a 17" LCD monitor when the time comes....plus it kind of makes more sense to be getting rid of stuff I don't need anymore before I move, rather than after.

So, I went looking for an acceptable 17" LCD monitor, with speakers, for under $200. I hit the usual big name online websites, and ended up looking at eBay. The LCD monitor should be new, rather than used or remanufacturered. But, buying on eBay would be an acceptable option. The 18" LCD that I have was purchased on eBay. And, so was the 17" CRT that I was displacing. Though the 17" CRT replaces another 17" CRT that I had also purchased on eBay....the difference was the first one was a remanufactured unit and eventually failed me. In the short time that passed....it worked out that both monitors cost about the same (both were under $100...which I guess would only look like a good deal when you include that was back around 1999.

Anyways, I found a seller selling NSpire 1780M-S 17" LCD monitors with speakers for under $200....and even adding in the shipping cost, it stayed under the $200 mark. So, that's what I bought. I didn't know anything about this monitor, and probably wouldn't buy it any other way. And, I couldn't find the manufacturer's website. But, that isn't unusual considering that it was kind of the same way with the two 17" CRTs I had previously gotten off of eBay.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
