    How much is too much cold to damage my monitor?


    I have an Asus 27'' IPS LED HD Monitor (MX279H). Maybe not great, but it's really nice for my broke a**. It sits in a cold room (in AZ, not that cold, but it gets cold out here, 30's even)
    and on a desk by a drafty window. Is there any risk for damage? I guess this sounds silly, but wtf do I know?

    From Samsung should be the same for most conventional household/office CCFL or LED / LCD PC monitors :
    The operating temperature range for Samsung LCD monitors is 50 F to 104 F (10 C to 40 C). The safe storage temperature range for Samsung LCD monitors is -4 F to 113 F (-20 C to 45 C). Temperatures outside these ranges can cause LCD monitors to malfunction.

    Thanks dude. I guess I'm an idiot. I can go to the Asus site or simply read the manual that came with the monitor. Derp. Thanks.
