heya!
I was looking for defect monitors on ebay and i was wondering for what i have to look.

I read the dead backlight-thing in the "tutorial" from the mainpage and obviously it's no use bidding on a tft with a knife through the display.
but what about black bars? are they easy to fix? (i.e. a new cable or something)
and little cracks in the display? let's say from falling on an edge? can you replace the display? do you even need it(hehe I guess I didn't read every sentence in the tutorial)?
I'm looking forward for some advice.

Any damage to the screen itself should be treated as final, in fact it's probably better to go for a monitor that is working, you'll need a working backlight at some point, and the prices are dropping all the time.

Older monitors may be better than newer ones, there's a possibility that newer monitors with higher refresh rates cause "jitter".   We don't really know what causes jitter, but that might be part of it at least.

Possibly.

I dont think theres any need to go for a completely knackered unit, your better of spending 20quid more on a working model. My Monitor cost me 50quid and was a perfect working unit.
