About four years ago, my Samsung 225BW monitor started flickering. I was able to fix it with $12.00 spent on a replacement and 15 minutes of work with a soldering iron. Well, it started flickering again on Thursday and this time I decided to just replace it. I just have too much other stuff on my plate right now and it seemed like time for an upgrade. Anyway, that worked out pretty well all things considered.
Of course, it would be even better if Samsung had just used better capacitors in the first place.
