Let me start off by saying that I am aware that this may not be posted in the correct forum ... but I need some imput and there are more people in here then the other forums.

Is anyone familiar with the Nits 15" inch TFT LCD Panel? Here is a link to eBay where they are being auctioned off. I am thinking about getting an LCD monitor and this looks kind of nice.

2 red flags, man.............

sizably unknown mfgr/vendor, and it's off eBay.





not that the mfgr/dist is bad, but i don;t think i could recommend a vendor i have never heard of.

and buying off eBay? you are giving up ease of customer support buy buying that way. buying from a major retailer gives you a larger degree of insurance should a problem arise and a return is necessary.





who knows? it could be a rebadged Sony or Samsung TFT, and you could be saving a bundle. then again, it could be an inferior screen and you won't realize that until you have already gone to the trouble of buying it.

I'd be wary, unknown brand, and again, eBay, seems like you're often trying to buy something off the back of a truck in a dark alley in New York City....except you have a better chance of getting your goods in New York City.

Tried to pull up the brand Nits on Google...no hits...another reason to ponder. Nits is a measurement of brightness on LCD's, but can't pull any brand.

One of the resellers pitches makes me want to reach out and punch the guy across the jaw:

"Q. Why not buy a 18" LCD panel instead of having two 15" LCD panel
Do the math, 2 x 15" = 30", not only you have more screen real estate, it's also much more economical, where a single 18" typically sells for $700+, two 15" LCD in our case only cost about $550.00"

Well friggin DUH...with that stupid logic, what the hell am I saving up for a GeForce FX for, heck, for $500.00, I'm an idiot for wanting a GeForce FX when according to THIS guys logic, I should go out and 45 S3 Virge PCI video cards for the same amount of money.
