Default Re: How long do LCD monitors typically last?

i have an LG unit from 2003 that's still kicking. I also have a lot of old 90's era laptops that still work. It depends a lot on who made it and how well it was taken care of. A desktop unit will likely last longer since it's stationary and rarely comes into contact with other objects. The biggest killers for LCD screens isn't outright failure, but pixels dying or discoloring or the back light going out. Those two would make it much less usable and would be reason to replace it.
