Should I get a retro gaming monitor with a lifetime warranty?

The recommended warranty period depends on how often you use your retro gaming 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 retro gaming monitormight be not guaranteed at all. We think that the best warranty period for a good retro gaming monitor is five years.
