Can LCD monitors be used in a 24-hour-per-day environment?


In principle, BenQ monitors are mainly designed for normal use in general customer usage scenarios, and no restriction is imposed on a monitor running 24 hours a day.
However, the lifespan of a panel is around 30,000 hours in the best possible scenario.
A practical assumption would be around 20,000 hours.
20,000 hours equals 2.2 years of non-stop operation, yet the stress put on all the other components can make this period even shorter.
If you do decide to use the monitor on a 24-hour-a-day basis, please make sure the entire display is refreshed every 10 minutes and no static image remains.
Approaches include using a screensaver, putting the monitor in standby mode, or running a completely different wallpaper or background.
This is to avoid image retention, which is a technical limitation of LCD monitors.Of course, if you need the monitor to run longer on a 24-hours-a-day basis, to find the product is advertised that they are industrial grade 24/7 could be a better choice.
