My monitor died this morning. The power won't come on. After some searching, i assume it's old or fried capicator problem.
as emergency measure, asked my roommate to drive me to Walmart and got this.
it's really a monitor designed for TV.
Vizio turned out to be a US company founded by Chinese in California in 2002, and it's popular for selling TV screens.
For me, it's a upgrade. My old served me good 6 years. It was LG L227WTG, 22″, 1680×1050. Not LED. 〔➤ Why I'm Switching from Mac to Windows〕
now it's 1920×1080 and 24″ and LED.
it's got what's called Smart TV
for my record, here's spec
