Well i have an AOC spectrum 7f monitor that i thought it was flat and i tried all sorts of methods to make the lines be ok ,but with no luck and after some time i assumed that the thing was broken because of that ,and the strange noise it made when it was turned off ,but now ...i see i was very very stupid .. well i have an excuse do ..it was my first" flat "screen and computer .
Enyway ..
The brand AOC spectrum 7f SHOULD be flat ,so why is it not ?
The front glass of the thing is flat ,but i understood that the tube is not after i pluged in a mitsubishi that a friend gave me ..when i swiched back to the "AOC" i was shocked when i saw the difrence ..If this thing is flat i am a horse !
I tried to look behind the front glass and saw the monitor being perfectly normal CRT tube ,but just a litle flatter than other normal CRT-s ..
On the edges it gets a bit more blurry and darker becouse of the bigger distance between the glass and the flat glass infront ..
When i opened the thing i saw the stunning name of the tube ...CHUNGHWA . WTF !!??
Could someone have put a totaly difrent tube in a flat monitor brand 's box ? And totaly difrent electronics ?

It is not a true flat screen monitor, it is a "flat face" monitor.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

And to the last couple of questions, every company does that. When you buy a Dell you get a combination of all the components that Dell has bought from different manufacturers. Company A makes the mobo, Company B makes the CPU, Company C makes the PSU...Then they buy the parts, assemble them, slap a sticker on it and sell it to you. Just the way it works...
