LCD Monitors For The Home and Office

Aug 17, 2007
Technology such as LCD Monitors covered in this article are rapidly changing our world in many ways and becoming more affordable for the average person. It's worth mentioning however that better technology is actually properly defined as simply a better way of doing something we already do with whatever process we have at hand. Rather than thinking of better technology in terms of computers, hi tech gadgets and such, for example anytime we find a way to get to work 5mins faster than before we have found a better technology to improve our lives in some respect.

I spend eight hours every day at my computer because that is what I do for a living. Honestly it would not be possible without my using the latest in technology breakthroughs; one of the new LCD computer monitors.

The old style computer monitors are based on cathode ray tube technology that has been around for more than fifty years. There have been some improvements but nothing can compare to the new LCD computer monitors. The screen is flat and thin, taking up almost no space on my desk. There is virtually no heat generated by the LCD computer monitors. Energy consumption is low and the picture display quality is fantastic.

The colors of the LCD computer monitors are real. That is the only way I can describe it. In addition, another advantage I like is that there is no glare from a glass screen. Lights can be on all around you and it does not decrease the quality of the display. Of course, you never need to use one of those anti-radiation panels with the LCD computer monitors.

One downside is that you never need to use a screensaver with an LCD computer monitor. The image is never burned on the monitor so a screensaver becomes something for fun and not to save your monitor.

The reliability of LCD computer monitors is much greater than with the CRT types. The technology is relatively simple, with fewer parts to fail. LCD computer monitors are truly 'computer' monitors in that a chip controls the picture and not electronic beams hitting a glass screen.

**Running Commentary** - Its interesting to note at this point that the cost of LCD Monitors is going to range in price quite a bit and you really need to first identify your needs and wants and when you go shopping make sure you don't overspend for features you want but don't really need. As technology so quickly becomes obsolete 1. many of the features will become obsolete 2. later models will be cheaper if not superseded by a later model with newer features and 3. are you going to actually have time to read the whole manual and understand how all the features work ? (I know I never figure out all the features of any new gadget or gizmo I buy)

I think that they are safer also. With virtually no electrical wiring and other big electrical components, the idea that it could explode is not going to happen. I know that is probably just my imagination, but you can never tell.

All the major electronic manufacturers make their own version of LCD computer monitors so there is good price competition. That means LCD computer monitors are much more affordable than they used to be. There is really no excuse for not upgrading to a better, more efficient, and more useful computer monitor.

The size of your computer monitor might be a factor in your choice to buy. LCD computer monitors come in the traditional desktop size but are available as large as forty inches or more. This is great for a business that needs to give presentations to larger groups and for tele-conferencing. Everybody can see a quality large picture.

The technology of LCD computer monitors also means that there are fewer things to go wrong and that they will last longer than what you are probably using now.

To wrap up our article about LCD Monitors I wish you luck in putting your new technology to use in your home/work life. In the last 20 years I have seen so many examples of new technology come and go I can't help feeling excited about what I'm going to see in the next 20 years. Although many people seem to feel a sense of foreboding about new things changing their lives in a negative way I must confess that I don't have this fear at all (at the ripe old age of 40 anyway). I understand that new and changing technology is not only inevitable but in fact is opening up more opportunities for us all than ever before in our history and we should only feel threatened if we choose to cling to the past and somehow expect the rest of the world around us to do the same.
