Tutorial On Different Variations Of Computer Monitors

Sep 2, 2008
The tower of a computer is only half of the mix needed to have a fully working computer- the next step is to obtain a monitor. Computer users know that there are several different types of monitors out there today, but knowing which one to buy and knowing which is a poor buying decision can be a tough problem to solve.

A cathode ray tube monitor, more commonly known as a CRT monitor, is what most are accustomed to using. CRT monitors are heavy, bulky, and old technology- but that doesn't mean that they aren't still widely used today. In fact, they are generally less expensive and last longer than cheaper forms of LCD monitors, so some computer buyers don't mind the fact they have a huge monitor to lug around.

The debate between CRT and LCD monitor is rather old- but it seems LCD monitors are winning the battle as years pass and newer generations flock to the tech-savvy monitors over the older behemoths. LCD monitors are also dropping in price from when first released, so consumers can usually afford an LCD monitor even if they are on a tight budget. This is especially great for businesses, who are no fans of spending unnecessary money.

High resolution displays can be obtained through both CRT and LCD monitors, but only the TFT LCD displays have been able to produce truly remarkable results. TFT LCD monitors take the idea of the LCD monitor and runs with it, by offering a thin film of transistors to selectively empower pixels to be more responsive. The result is an increase in resolution, which graphics designers and professional website designers will surely appreciate.

Knowing which computer monitor to opt for is important for keeping one's budget in line. CRT monitors are always the better decision where budgets are concerned, since they are cheap to produce and last an extended period of time as well. LCD monitors are becoming much more inexpensive as time goes on, so it may only be a few more dollars just to get a better monitor that takes up less space- and that's always a great decision!

Businesses in particular will need to know what type of monitor to go for in terms of cost effectiveness and dependability. From a business standpoint, LCD monitors have become a better decision for tight office spaces. In earlier times, LCD monitors were less prized because of the "dead pixel" problems they present. New technologies have remedied this problem for the most part, however.

Final Thoughts

Computer monitors will continue to evolve and thrive and technology continues to skyrocket with each passing decade. Eventually we'll see the demise of the CRT monitor as we see more innovative types of monitors make their way into technologies and the overall history of computer science.
