Are there any appropriate applications for consumer displays in your experience? Why or why not?
In my opinion, there is not an appropriate application for consumer screens in a commercial environment. This is mainly due to the warranty associated with the display. A typical consumer-based display will have a 90-day time period that can sometimes be voided when installed in a commercial location. When you finally decide to do a digital signage project, you spend a lot of time planning and configuring everything. The last thing you want is to have your vision not live up to its potential because of a display that fails and/or isn’t reliable. Commercial-grade displays are built better with better components and are A-rated for longer life. When you want the screen on more than a few hours a day, a commercial grade display is the smart choice.
