Kit dies, that's the way it is. When do you draw the line?

If I buy something as used, I don't expect any warranty. If I wanted one, I'd buy new. That's the risk you take.

IMO it's exactly what I'd expect, and perfectly normal. No company is going to ring up customers to reduce their overall income, unless they're obliged to.

Prices are rising at the moment, so I wouldn't worry too much. The seller has the power.

Don't forget as well that even if they realised they were wrong half-way through, they're going to look a bit stupid if they suddenly change their mind.

Not an excuse, but perhaps an explanation.

I would think that by the time it has failed from over-usage, you'll be able to to buy a similarly spec'd equivalent for next to nothing.

Great! I've been looking forward to the death of uplay.

If that's not what you mean Ubisoft, then you're lying. But I guess we knew that already.

I did see that article, but it sounds like a real hack-job. Not something I'd want to invest money in to achieve, although if I had the kit already obviously I'd give it a crack.

Bad timing.

HDMI 2 isn't an option yet, so unless your TV comes with the right Displayport connectivity, you're stuffed.

P2414H is a nice screen - it's a bit like the last generation of Ultrasharp Dells. The design is very different to the U2414H, but differs little to the U2212/U2312 designs.
