Why can't I see anything at an angle on my computer monitor?

Episode 1199 (28:09)

George from Houston, TX

George bought a cheap LCD monitor and he has trouble seeing it from an angle. Leo says that's how cheaper monitor brands save money, but using LCD screens that have poor angles of view. He can see, but the angle gets pretty dim. Leo advises avoiding places like Fry's and go with NewEgg.

Should George get rid of it? Leo says not really. But most computers do take multiple monitors, so why not get another? If he can return it, however, maybe that's a better option.
