From what I've seen, it's the control boards that go bad rather than the LEDs themselves, and that is normally a quick fix - DIY if you get the board. I've replaced quite a few and keep some spare control boards for my shops, where I always use cheap monitors. In fact, I've never seen anything BUT the board go bad on the machines in my shops.

At home where I actually buy good stuff, I am partial to the Samsungs like Gizmo. I have a couple of 23"s that are just beautiful both in style and display.
