Inherent Traits

So, my friend just returned his Sony monitor for the third time. Why? He thinks the two lines caused by the Trinitron Shadowmask are defects in the monitor. I mean, if the two little lines drive hime nuts, why doesn't he just buy a new monitor without the trinitron shadowmask? Because 'Sony is the best'. Why are they one of the best? Because of their Trinitron tube, with the two little wires that very slightly show up on the display. This circle of insanity will never end.

He has issues that will not be solved by returning the sony. The type of mask used, and it's not unique to sony, that will give those two lines.

I can't feel any sympathy for him. I am annoyed by people that don't learn.

i have a viewsonic pf790. it has the same 2 lines, they were annoying at first, now i don't even notice them. i love the monitor, and decided it was worth the annoyance to keep it. it was definitely the right decision.

Sony is gay. I've been burnt by them 3 times by their short-lifetime personal audio equipment.

My Discman's volume knob intermittently stops working. I swapped it for another and get the same problem. Next time I'll take a TEAC so the misery is less expensive.

I see those damn two lines on other monitors all the time, it drives me nuts! Id return it too. Except he's an idiot if he thinks its a defect (or whomever let him return that for that reason). Those two lines are almost as annoying as running my monitor at 60Hz.

I guess some people are more perceptive than others... (or were just crazy)

My 21 inch Viewsonic G220fb does NOT have the two lines, at least not that I can see. I'm pretty sure it's a trinitron. As to those lines, supposewdly all trinitorns have them. They support the mask.

Those little punk lines don't show up for awhile, when I first bought my NEC Multisync 950 it took about a month for them to show up.... then I said "WTF?" If you go to the website it tells all about them, LOL! my friend bought a NEC and when I seen it I asked him if the lines had shown up yet and he asked "what lines" so I told him about them.... but his monitor was new so they hadn't show up yet, then other day I was at his house and asked him if they had shown up and he said no.... so I looked at his monitor and said "yep, there they are" He He... he was all pissed!

hmm...I just actually looked (I posted this last post from a different computer) and I don't have lines. Whatever - my parent's computer at home has them. Either way, it's not a defect.
