Xah's Monitor, 2014

2014-10-16 This poor sob got a new monitor. A new monitor after 6 years.

My monitor died this morning. The power won't come on. After some searching, i assume it's old or fried capicator problem. It is Xah's Monitor, 2008

As emergency measure, asked my roommate to drive me to Walmart and got this.

It's really a display designed for TV. It's actually a Smart TV. It has a remote. But no buttons on the display to power on or adjust anything. And there is no auto sleep feature.

Vizio turned out to be a US company founded by Chinese in California in 2002, and it's popular for selling TV screens.

For me, it's a upgrade. My old served me good 6 years. It was LG L227WTG, 22″, 1680×1050. Not LED. [see Why I'm Switching from Mac to Windows]

Now it's 1920×1080 and 24″ and LED.
