MAG lcd monitors

Does anyone else have one, what is your experience with them? We bought two of the 19" models in February 2006, since then we have had nothing but issues, both were replaced due to failure within three months, one replacement was replaced in January this year, and now the other replacement is starting to fail, but it is now out of the 1 year warranty, so we are screwed on it I guess. They were both purchased at Best Buy for over $300 each, seems like alot of cash for a monitor that doesn't even last a year.

I'd only really stick with, sony, samsung, nec, Altec?, and I think 1 more. Those are the best brands. My samsung is badass. I've had it for 2 years and not even one pixel has gone out yet.

MAG is a cheap brand, my brother bought a 19" MAG from Fry's about a year ago for $219. That's pretty expensive for that brand..He hasn't had any issue with his.

At the time, this was the cheapest 19" monitor at Best Buy and CircuitCity. Each one had a mail-in refund, but the company would only honor one per household, and the fuckers never sent the refund for the one.

I like Gateway right now myself. When I was looking for the one I have now, I saw some poor reviews/posts in regards to MAG. Live and learn I guess.

I cant complain about my Samsung 913v. Picked it up July 2005 and still works great. Brands I would suggest are Samsung, Dell and Gateway.
