I've been wondering, since I bought my 17-inch LCD monitor some 4 months ago...what should I do to take best care of it?
I bought it this nice, sort of foamy cover, like those for CRT monitors, but thicker and of much higher quality (sorry, english not being my native tongue, I don't quite find the right term). It's not very thick, but it keeps dust off of it when not used.
Maybe it should be thicker, to provide better protection against accidents...I don't know its exact materials, I can find out and take pictures of it even, to show you people and see if you have anything important to say about it.
In any case, my point is about proper maintenance. Like, how to clean off the dust without risking to do something to the delicate surface, and whatever other things that aren't necessarily obvious. Is it safe at all to touch it, really? I already almost kill an uncle who put his fingertip on it and caused a small ripple in the picture for a moment there...
I'm extremely delicate and extra careful with my belongings (many of them being electronics or brittle books), but I still think I may be missing something, since this hardware is still a mystery to me for the most part.
Besides, the LCDs are part of the new computer hypes, and as a tech support kind of guy, I'll find it quite useful to know these bits.
Thank you all in advance, and best of luck. Bye!
