Don't ever buy HP products

This is my poor, dead monitor, 18 months old. I've never had a monitor die, since 1989. A hunk of junk - and when it started acting up at 13 months old, the cheapskates at HP wanted to charge me $40 for tech support because it was a month over warrantee.


And this comes after having a bunch of problems in 2003 with my all-in-one printer. First, it died, and the tech guy said they can't handle printing post card. They did replace my unit, but the fax machine requires a 2-pin phone cord. Have you ever tried to buy a 2-pin phone cord?

Doing some research, I found out that these companies will make the same product for the big stores, not just Wal Mart and Target but also Best Buy and CompUSA, that they make for business clients and small computer shops, but the big-store units were usually rush-made to fill big orders. They're assembled in places like Guatemala, made out of whatever parts they were able to buy, to rush 60,000 monitors to Best Buy, or whatever.
