Ever had that horrid feeling come to nest in the pit of your stomach when your new monitor made a funny popping noise, then wouldn't display anything? You're not alone; I've been there more than once myself. So, you send off your monitor to its manufacturer for replacement, and they send along another one. Problem solved—usually without too much pain.

To answer this question, the always-interesting Adam LongWalker returns to TR with an intriguing look at a monitor refurb operation. He snapped some pictures of the assembly line running full-tilt, no less. Read on to see what he found.
