The CRT monitor is a technology that is over 100 years old. Picture quality
has got considerably better since the 5" black and white televisions of
the 1950s, but the hot and bulky cathode ray tube seems woefully cumbersome
and low tech when it is sat on your desk next to a modern PC. Luckily in the
last few years, snazzy high tech alternatives have been made available and affordable.
LCD monitors use less then a quarter of the space taken up by a CRT monitor,
and use a third of the power. LCD monitors also give a much sharper picture,
and are easier on the eyes since the pixels stay continuously on or off, instead
of flashing every time the screen is refreshed.
In this group test, we take a look at 10 different displays currently on the
market. An asterisk denotes an award worthy display.
We also recommend reading our buyer's
guide, with has an in depth explanation of the technology that goes into
making an LCD monitor, and how it affects the finished product.
