LCD displays have a maximum life of about 2 years.


Do your research before you buy.


Some GOOD companies offer lifetime garuntees.

Last I checked LCD's don't "refresh". They have pixels that are either on or off, that's it.

well, if you worked at BB, then you'd know that we carry MORE than just FP's...

And I enjoy working at BB...discount is GREAT, the people are cool, and I'm good at my job...

I know you had the same discount... I doubt that you had nothing but shitty people working with you, so were you not good at your job? why you not like it?

that's BECAUSE you were new...shit dude...it's called WORK...everyone has to do it...Once you were properly trained you would have been selling...not tasking...well you still would have tasked...everyone does...but the point is...regardless of how much you think you know about computers...they are NOT going to just let you run free...you needed to learn SOP, and they needed to learn how much you knew...

and that's not unreasonable...

kids today...no work values...just gimme a paycheck for not doing a damn thing...

well I'm not a kid...I'm making great money (6 raises in 2 years...which is unheard of @ BB) and I run the Media dept. I know what to do in any dept. because I was trained...if you weren't trained..it is their fault...but I do my job well, and enjoy it...

it seems to me that you didn't work very hard...else while working in the comp dept, you would have noticed the LARGE variety of monitors...lol

And doing all their work? LOL..do you even know what management is... it's the position of telling others to do the grunt work...while the ensure the dept. runs as it should...bitching about getting a few comps down...lol...guess you didn't know what you were getting into...

all BB's are different..but they carry the same products...my store is the flag ship...HUGE freaking store...

carries a VERY large variety of the product lines...

Store 147 is much smaller...carries the same products...just fewer quantities in stock...

HOW long did you work at BB... 2 days?

I know BB... been there for quite a while...I like my job...I'm good at my job...I know the products...
