Fairly clean Oct 6, 2017

The one I'm using now is only just over a year old, and I do clean it occasionally (in fact there is a "Gadget wipe" sitting in front of it in a little sachet right now). I bought a new one a couple of months ago to use with my backup PC, and I've only used it four or five times, so it's pretty much spotless. A friend recently got herself a new all-in-one PC, so she gave me her old monitor, which is still in perfectly good working order and quite clean as well. My keyboards tend to be dirtier...

There's an inch of dust on the stand, the screen gets wiped when the sun shines on it, but who cares?

Spotless Oct 6, 2017

I clean it once a week when I clean the rest of the house (generally on Wednesdays)...

ProZ Staff, is nobody posting any poll questions any more so that you have to think up these stupid and completely useless polls?

Fun and informative polls are great, but the past week was Kindergarten!!!

A little bit of humour Oct 6, 2017

Hello! I think a little bit of humour is necessary, so thanks for this poll. Anyway, it is a good reminder for everyone: keep your monitor clean or you won't be able to answer other polls!icon_wink.gificon_smile.gif

In that case I amend my response to "Extremely dirty if I'm visiting DonkeyErotica.com"

Clean Oct 6, 2017

because I bought a brand new monitor last week.
But my (formerly) white keyboard displays beautiful shades of light brown, specially on the rare keys I never use !!!

Physically or Virtually? Oct 6, 2017

Some people considered physical cleaning, and some considered the amount of info on the scree, as I can see.
In either case, I'd vote "fairly".
