Should I get a backup monitor with a lifetime warranty?

The recommended warranty period depends on how often you use your backup monitor, how expensive is it, what company made it, and many other factors. Manufacturers sell their most expensive products with a lifetime warranty, while the least expensive backup monitormight be not guaranteed at all. We think that the best warranty period for a good backup monitor is five years.
