My Samsung monitor, the SyncMaster 753DF, has failed. I was watching the White Sox game and it got really dim and went POP! It also smelled like burnt popcorn. (I believe the flyback transformer (the one that makes lightning if you touch it) has gone funny.) It was only 5 years old- granted, that's a hard five years- but it's disappointing anyway. Even worse is that I had a spare Compaq monitor on the shelf, which was removed from service because of emotional problems, and it looks 10 times better than the old one ever looked. And now I have to buy a new monitor. The good news is that I should be able to get a pretty nice one pretty cheap.
