If you are thinking about buying a new TFT monitor for your computer it is understandable that you would want to keep the costs down as much as possible. You want to buy a good quality monitor but you don’t want to spend lots of money in the process. In addition you may have a strict budget to stick to.
Some people think about buying a display model if they are going out to the shops to buy a monitor. But is this a good idea, or are you better off looking in the shops and then buying your new TFT monitor online?
While it is true that a display monitor can provide you with a good bargain, it isn’t always the best decision to make. Sometimes it can be an end of line item and that means there will be better monitors that have just been released. You might find the display one isn’t as good as one you could get at full price – or even at a discount – online.
In addition to this you also need to think about the fact that it has been on display, possibly for a long period of time. What has happened to it during this time? It should have been tested to make sure it works properly before it is sold. But there is little chance that it won’t have been prodded and poked by people as they come in to see all the monitors on sale.
Quite often it is the fact that you can never be 100% sure of whether it is still in tip top condition that can put you off. Would you rather buy a display model or spend a little more and get an equally good bargain fresh out of the box from an online website?
You can still look out for bargains online if you pay attention to what is available. Explore every site you can find and see which ones have end of line deals if you are looking for a good bargain. These are often better than getting a display model from a shop where you can never be completely sure of the history.
So as you can see it pays to think about the consequences of buying a display model before you do so. If you want a brand new model then you should definitely shop online for a bargain.
