Help choose your monitor
Making the right choice on a computer screen or monitor is an important part of engaging yourself in web search and today’s multi-media technology. Right now, you see this on a computer monitor (unless you have someone print it for you and you read it on paper because your monitor makes it completely unreadable) and how it seems that you depend entirely on the quality of your display.
What is the difference between an LCD screen and a CRT monitor?
LCD screens look trendy nowadays; Flat screen displays are now sold with almost all bundles, while CRT screens are an older style technology. Apart from the space savings offered by flat screen LCDs (Liquid Crystal Display), it also produces very little heat and radiation, uses far less power and is less reflective. The LCD screen presents an excellent picture quality. Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors, on the other hand, occupy more space on your desktop, generate heat and use more power and usually have curved screens (although flat screen CRT monitors are available).
From a display standpoint, the main difference between the two lies in how the image is made, and the resolution that the screen can hold. Each pixel in an LCD screen is produced by a small cell containing a layer of liquid crystal that deflects light in response to electrical energy. Although they can be clearer than CRT screens, they are limited by only one optimal resolution. Adjusting the screen at a higher and optimal resolution reduces the overall screen image, and at a lower screen causes the screen image to appear “pixelated”.
CRT screens create their images through cathode ray emissions that attack the phosphor layer on the back of the glass tube. This offers more detail in images and colors at higher resolutions.
One other difference on the note is the display size. Screen size is the size of the diagonal on the screen. The 17-inch display (this has not yet been measured) is measured from one angle diagonally to its opposite. In LCD screens, this includes the entire framed screen, but in a CRT monitor, the display image is usually 8% -10% smaller than the framed screen area, which means a 17 ″ CRT monitor must have a larger framed screen than an LCD.
There may be two compatibility issues to consider. One of them is screen compatibility with your workspace and the job you want. If you have a small space, then the sleek features of the LCD will be a major part of your decision. It’s better to buy an all-digital screen than connecting to a standard video card (which is analog) and then translating the analog signal to digital. An all-digital display will offer brighter images. Compatibility with your computer’s video card is another consideration. You must be sure that the video card that you have on your computer will provide the screen resolution you need from your monitor and match the refresh rate.
Dot Pitch. This is the distance between the same color dots in any direction on the screen. Smaller dot pitch allows easier character reading and better color clarity. The maximum highpoint that you should consider for high-quality graphics and text is .28 for 17 “monitors and .31 for 21” monitors.
Screen resolution. The number of pixels displayed on the screen determines the resolution. The 1024 x 768 resolution has 1024 pixels in the horizontal plane, and 768 in the vertical. The higher the resolution, the more detail is displayed. Make sure your video card matches the resolution you need.
Refresh rate. This is the frequency at which the screen image is being refreshed to avoid flickering. A vertical refresh rate of 75 HZ (cycles per second) results in a blink-free environment and will reduce eye fatigue and fatigue.
Of course everything depends on what you are capable of. But a good quality display is a good investment in your work environment. CRT monitors can be purchased very cheaply. Digital LCDs can be very expensive. Manufacturers now offer displays with television receivers and internal speaker systems that can improve your overall environment and increase your purchasing flexibility. In the end, it depends on what you want to see on your desk as much as what you want to see on your monitor. You can spend as little as $ 200.00 or more than $ 2,000 and you can do it all online.
