In the old days, when CRTs ruled, I remember that monitors were manufactured specifically for the location in the world in which they were to be sold. Amongst other things, the Earths magnetic field influenced the display (or something like that). This meant for example, that buying a CRT monitor in the USA, and bringing it back to New Zealand wasn't a good idea, and not just because of the excess baggage charge..
Does this apply to LCD monitors?
Are there any gotchas I should be aware of if I intend to bring a nice LCD back home on my next trip?
