    I was wanting to get the 32" sharp tv for my mac mini monitor but they don't make the one I want anymore but one place has one left at 15% off. The catch is it was the display model.

    Would you buy this? I was thinking there were many problems with a monitor being on for all that time, maybe been a display all year. Seems like alot of on time.

    Doesn't seem worth the risk for only 15% off. Especially if there's no warranty. Is there?

    I'd say no, generally speaking. If it was a TV then I'd say definitely, but if you get a monitor, it's probably been poked, rattled and generally abused in ways you probably don't want more than you think.

    Eat the extra 15% and get yourself a nice brand-spanking new monitor, you'll be glad you did.

    Just my $.02
