Low resolution, with apparently only a VGA lead connection.

Send your '14 month old monitor' back for a refund. European legislation means it is covered for 2 years.

My Acer Monitor was covered for three years and I think that most if not all of them are?

Also I've just found this Fujitsu 20" for £93 including delivery.

The UK opted out of that.

Yes, but a monitor should obviously last more than just 14 months so it's still reasonable to send it back and get it fixed.

So you see we are covered by the SOGA in the UK

....and retailers are also bound by the EU law.

In reality the EU law is legislation that covers goods for 2 years on a 'No quibble' basis, as long as the buyer conforms.

The SOGA 'covers' goods for up to six years and it is up to the customer to prove that it is unreasonable that a product hasn't lasted as long as it should have.

The two laws both apply. The EU law is better for the OP as the product failed after a period of less than two years so the retailer is obliged to put things right.

Its a directive its not law, the UK opted out of it as we already have the SOGA

Ring consumer direct or trading standards and see what they say !

A directive is a legislative act.....

Legal basis

The legal basis for the enactment of directives is Article 288 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (formerly Article 249 TEC).

Article 288
To exercise the Union's competences, the institutions shall adopt regulations, directives, decisions, recommendations and opinions.

A regulation shall have general application. It shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

A directive shall be binding, as to the result to be achieved, upon each Member State to which it is addressed, but shall leave to the national authorities the choice of form and methods.

A decision shall be binding in its entirety upon those to whom it is addressed.

Recommendations and opinions shall have no binding force.

Two points. It has worked this year for a work collegue with Dell coincidently in respect of a laptop screen that failed after 18 months.

Second point I have indicated legislation and defined the terms of the legislation used. You have not been able to uncover any evidence that this EU law is not applicable in the UK. So I suppose you're right. Double yawn.
