Giant Optics CRT monitors

Written by Tech84 on January 29, 2008

My 17 inch crt monitor just came back from the repair shop due to some brightness malfunction of some sort. I bought mine about a 2 months ago and lately the screen just bacame dark for no apparent reason. Even when adjusting the settings nothing happens so i sent it back.

Here’s a tip, AVOID the brand Giant Optics when purchasing monitors, be it CRTs or LCD’s.

I get a lot people complaining about the quality of their monitors so it would be best to avoid them.

    i recently bought a 17 inch giant optics monitor, the reason i bought it was it was relatively cheaper and it was the only one they had in black.

    2 months plang nandidilim na ung monitor, akala ko may problema lang sa video card pero wla madilim na talaga. so i brought it to gilmore where i bought it for repair and it took them 3 ( THREE FREAKING! ) weeks! because the had to wait for the parts to come daw, went went there for like 5 friggin times only to tell me the parts havent come yet and try to come back the next day and so on… At least the dude at their repair center offered a temporary replacement but it was a 15 inch god knows what monitor and i refused bcos i was only commuting that day and didnt want to be bringin the damn thing the next tym i go back there.

    well thats my story, thats why i also dont like this brand coz of my bad experience with it.

    naku kabibili ko pa lang ng giant optics na monitor, 2 days ago,
    sana, umabot man lang kahit 2 years bago masira. kung alam ko lang sana iniwasan ko nalang ang brand na to.

    I have been using my Giant optics 17″ for 4 years now and never had any problems with it, however it tends to gather a lot of dust inside, I have given it a good blowout now and then, (don’t use do this if you don’t know how) cleaning helps to keep components from overheating, hope to get many more years of life from it, what I am looking for is a driver instead of using the default in Xp.

    Anybody help?

    yes! totoo na walang quality ang giant 10 pa nman ang nabili ko,bukod sa madilim may gumuguhit pa na line sa gitna.wag na po kayo bibili ng brand na giant para makaiwas kayo sa sakit ng ulo at para magsara na ang factory nila.

    May ginagawa me na GIANTS OPTICS na monitor hirap lng talaga maghanap ng parts. Kalimitan mga factory defects cguro. Meron din nman tumatagal.
