      • "Screen looks less crisp at higher resolutions"

      After finally writing off my old 15" monitor in a horrible power surge, I decided I needed to swiftly replace it. Stumbling around a budget electronics store later, I found the COMPAQ V75. Looking round it, I was impressed with the good 17" screen size, generally modern design and reasonable price and so decided to buy it. I got home, plugged it in and had a look at 800 x 600 resolution. Very impressive compared to my older monitor; the picture was crisp and solid. Then I upped it to the maximum the monitor could handle for a test - 1280 x 1024. The screen appeared slightly lest crisp but still quite good, so I left it set like this, satisfied with my purchase. However, just 3 days after purchase, the screen went black for 1 second. This now happens frequently, as often as twice a day. In 2 weeks the bottom left corner went distorted and now has a 1-inch yellow tint. The 1-second blackouts get more frequent every day. My advice is look elsewhere for a monitor. Owning a COMPAQ V75 monitor is basically like having a sports car that breaks down after 10 miles.
