Not relating to home appliances, although I think LG does make
appliances as well. In fact I think our Kenmore microwave is by LG.
A 19" 4:3 LG LCD monitor quit while still -- just -- in warranty. I
called LG on Tuesday, and a replacement arrived by FedEx today -- but
not one of those old-fashioned 19" 4:3 relics: a 23" wide-screen one.
I have a pre-paid shipping label to send the old one back. FedEx will
pick it up.
We got the same treatment recently with a dead satellite box. I'll ask
for a bouquet of cut flowers next time an appliance dies - figure I've
paid for it many times over. Just tossed an HP computer monitor, which
was about 4 years old. When this one dies, I'm done with computers.
I'll let the TV die, too, and go back to radio. Tired of paying for junk.
Heck I'm half blind so I set my 22" ViewSonic to 1024X768. I
can't see those itsy bitsy icons and words. It drives me nuts
to work on someone computer when they have the monitor set to
those extreme resolutions. ARRRRGH!
You're fixing a symptom and not the cause (I had the same problem).
The solution is to use larger icons, and to set your text larger. This has
the added benefit of running the monitor at it's native resolution, giving
you crisper text, while fixing the "tiny text" problem.
Thanks Jon but it doesn't work for me. I'm very nearsighted and have
some other vision problems. I've been dealing with this problem I
have with computer displays for 30 years and my vision has gotten worse
over that time. I love large screen monitors so I can see what the heck
I'm doing! I'd love to get a 26-27" monitor but the prices are still
out of my range right now. I remember the first 17" CRT monitor I got
back in 1993 and I was so happy that my dealer price was $549.00. I
later got hold of a pair of 22" CRT monitors that had a .22 dot pitch
which was like looking at film because of the resolution. Those huge
monsters take up a lot of room and are as heavy as a fat woman. Thank
your chosen deity for LCD displays.
I guess they're better with electronics than appliances. I was looking
for a fridge a while back and by far the most and worst
failure/warranty/service horror stories were with LG's or Kenmore
branded ones made by LG.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Yep, that's my experience. My fridge stopped working a few days out
of warranty, with what was apparently a well-known and well-documented
part failure, and LG did NOT want to hear about it. Even the
repairman was stunned at the terrible service he received when
ordering the part.
