I'm looking at widescreen monitors

I have narrowed iy down to 2 choices.
Both are the same brand,resolution , size, & approxamtely the same price.

Monitor A is a "Backlit" LED model & has a 2 Yr. warranty

B is a standard LCD model & has a 3 Yr. warrabty

Any of you have a "Backlit" LED model ?

Is it worth losing a years warranty for ?

The reason for this is that XL20 uses an LED backlight rather than conventional Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps (CCFLs) found in almost every other desktop LCD display. Using LEDs over CCFLs brings with it a number of advantages, the most fundamental of which is that the LEDs are able to create a much purer white level, and thus, a much larger colour gamut.


I believe for you to make the decision, you are going to have to actually go out and compare the 2 side by side and see if the difference is that important to you

I let common sense prevail & went with "B" .

If the manufacturer thinjs it will last a year longer I'll go with that.
