I purchase three HP systems in December, 2006. I upgraded each system to include a 19 inch monitor, model VS19d.
The first monitor failed in February, 2008 - 2 months out of warrantee. The second and third monitors both failed in May, 2008 - 5 months out of the warrantee period.
These monitors obviously had a manufacturing defect or used substandard parts. No one at HP cares in the least. They seem to think a year is a normal span of time for a monitor to last. I spoke to customer service, tech support, sales, a higher level of sales, and finally to a Quality Case Manager (that was the biggest joke of all). I was seeking a 50% discount on two monitors. I stupidly replaced the first one with another HP monitor thinking the monitor failure was a fluke.
The major line they had was "if it is out of warrantee, you are out of luck". Actually, they would be the ones out of luck, because I spent more than $6k on computer equipment with them, and they will never see another dime from me.
After searching the Internet, I found 10 other people at one site with the same issue with the same model of monitor.
I will be replacing my monitor with Acers which have a three year warrantee and sell for a reasonable price of less than $200.
I'm so done with HP.
