include traditional lcd displays pricelist

LCD displays use a relatively new technology, but all of the early teething problems have long been worked out and the prices of LCD displays have fallen to the point that they are now mainstream products. A good LCD display, such as the ViewSonic VP191 19" model shown in Figure 11-2, provides top-notch image quality in a compact package. Although traditional CRTs have advantages of their own, most people who experience the bright, contrasty image of a good LCD display will never return to using a CRT monitor.

If you convert from a standard CRT display to a flat-screen CRT display or (particularly) an LCD display, you may notice an odd effect. Your eye and brain become used to seeing the curved surface of the old display as flat. The new display, which truly is flat, looks concave! Straight lines appear to bow inward, particularly if you work close to the display. The effect is so convincing that Robert actually held a straight-edge up to his new LCD display. Sure enough, the "bent" lines were straight. Don"t worry, though. The optical illusion disappears after only a couple hours" use.

CRT monitors were the dominant PC display technology until recently, but that has changed. For displays bundled with new PCs, LCDs exceeded CRTs in popularity by late 2002. By 2005, LCDs had also begun to outsell CRTs in retail channels. Lower cost and other advantages of CRTs ensure that they"ll remain available for years to come, but the emphasis has definitely shifted to LCDs.

Unlike CRT monitors, which have a maximum resolution but can easily be run at lower resolutions, LCDs are designed to operate at one resolution, called the native resolution. You can run an LCD at lower than native resolution, but that results in either the image occupying only part of the screen at full image quality or, via pixel extrapolation, the image occupying the full screen area but with greatly reduced image quality.

LCDs are available in analog-only, digital/analog hybrid, and digital-only interfaces. Using an analog interface requires converting the video signal from digital to analog inside the PC and then from analog to digital inside the monitor, which reduces image quality, particularly at higher resolutions. Synchronization problems occur frequently with analog interfaces, and can cause various undesirable display problems. Finally, analog interfaces are inherently noisier than digital interfaces, which causes subtle variations in display quality that can be quite disconcerting.

Whereas CRT monitors require high vertical refresh rates to ensure stable images, LCDs, because of their differing display technology, can use much lower refresh rates. For example, at 1280x1024 resolution on a CRT monitor, you"ll probably want to use an 85 Hz or higher refresh rate for good image quality. At the same resolution on an LCD, 60 Hz is a perfectly adequate refresh rate. In fact, on LCDs, a lower refresh rate often provides a better image than a higher refresh rate.

Unlike CRT monitors, whose phosphor-based pixels respond essentially instantaneously to the electron beam, LCD panels use transistors, which require time to turn on or turn off. That means there is a measurable lag between when a transistor is switched on or off and when the associated pixel changes to the proper state. That lag, called rise time for when the transistor is switched on and fall time for when it is switched off, results in a corresponding lag in image display.

Fast LCD response time is a Good Thing. Fast response means smoother scrolling and no ghosting or smearing, even when you view fast-motion video. Unfortunately, there"s no standard way to measure or specify response time, so different LCD makers use different methods. That means you can"t necessarily compare the response time specified by one LCD maker directly with that specified by another. (Actually, it"s worse than that; you can"t necessarily compare response times for two different models made by the same company.)

When LCDs first appeared, most makers specified rise-and-fall response in milliseconds (ms), the time required for a pixel to change from black to white (rise time) and then from white to black (fall time), also called the black-white-black (bwb) response. Nowadays, in addition to or instead of bwb, many LCD makers specify white-black-white (wbw) response and/or gray-to-gray (gtg) response, the time required to go from one level of gray to another.

It is not safe to make assumptions about one type of response time based on another type. For example, one LCD may have response times of 20 ms bwb and 8 ms gtg, while another model from the same manufacturer may have response times of 16 ms bwb and 12 ms gtg. So, is the second LCD slower or faster than the first? It depends on which numbers you decide to use. Advertisers use the fastest numbers available. Count on it.

LCDs are brighter than CRTs. A typical CRT has brightness of about 100 candelas/square meter, a unit of measurement called a nit. (Some displays are rated in foot Lamberts (fL); one fL equals about 3.43 nits). A typical LCD is rated at 250 to 350 nits, roughly three times as bright as a typical CRT. CRTs dim as they age, although a brightness control with enough range at the upper end can often be used to set an old CRT to near original brightness. The CCRTs used to backlight LCDs also dim as they age, but generally fail completely before reduced brightness becomes a major issue.

Contrast measures the difference in luminance between the brightest and dimmest portions of an image, and is expressed as a ratio. The ability to display a high-contrast image is an important aspect of image quality, particularly for text. An average CRT may have a contrast ratio of 200:1, and a superb CRT 250:1. An inexpensive LCD may have a contrast ratio of 400:1, and a superb LCD 1,000:1. In other words, even an inexpensive LCD may have higher contrast than an excellent CRT.

Even good flat-screen CRTs are subject to objectionable reflections when used in bright environments, such as having the screen facing a window. Good LCDs are much superior in this respect. Short of direct sunlight impinging on the screen, a good LCD provides excellent images under any lighting conditions.

A typical CRT is about as deep as its nominal screen size. For example, a 19" CRT may be 19" from front to back. Large CRTs may be difficult to fit physically in the available space. Conversely, LCDs are quite shallow. The panel itself typically ranges from 1.5" to 3" deep, and even with the base most LCDs are no more than 7" to 8" deep. Also, where a large CRT may weigh 50 to 100 pounds or more, even large LCDs are quite light. A typical 17" LCD might weigh 10 pounds, and even a 23" unit may weigh less than 20 pounds. That small size and weight means that it"s possible to desk- or wall-mount an LCD with relatively inexpensive mounting hardware, compared to the large, heavy, expensive mounting hardware needed for CRTs.

Stated LCD display sizes are accurate. For example, a 19" LCD has a display area that actually measures 19" diagonally. CRT sizes, on the other hand, are nominal because they specify the diagonal measurement of the entire CRT, part of which is covered by the bezel. For example, a nominal 19" CRT might have a display area that actually measures 18.1" diagonally. A couple of lawsuits several years ago convinced CRT makers to begin stating the usable size of their CRTs. This is stated as VIS (viewable image size or visible image size), and is invariably an inch or so smaller than the nominal size.

This VIS issue has given rise to the belief that a 15" LCD is equivalent to a 17" CRT, a 17" LCD to a 19" CRT, and so on. In fact, that"s not true. The image size of a typical 17" CRT is an inch or so larger than that of a 15" LCD, as is the image size of a 19" CRT relative to a 17" LCD.

Depending on size and other factors, a typical CRT consumes 100 to 160 watts while operating, while an LCD consumes only a quarter to a half as much power. Using an LCD reduces your electricity bill directly by consuming less power and indirectly by reducing the heating load on your air conditioning during hot weather.

Current LCDs are available in analog-only, digital-only, and models with both analog and digital inputs. Analog input is acceptable for 15" (1024x768) models, but for 17" (1280x1024) models analog video noise becomes an issue. At that screen size and resolution, analog noise isn"t immediately obvious to most people, but if you use the display for long periods the difference between using a display with a clean digital signal and one with a noisy analog signal will affect you on almost a subconscious level. For a 19" (1280x1024) LCD, we regard a digital signal as extremely desirable but not absolutely essential. For a larger display or above 1280x1024, we wouldn"t consider using analog signaling.

Insist on true 24-bit color support, which may be described as support for 16.7 million colors. Most current LCDs support 24-bit color, allocating one full byte to each of the three primary colors, which allows 256 shades of each color and a total of 16.7 million colors to be displayed. Many early LCDs and some inexpensive current models support only six bits per color, for a total of 18-bit color. These models use extrapolation to simulate full 24-bit color support, which results in poor color quality. If an LCD is advertised as "24-bit compatible," that"s good reason to look elsewhere. Oddly, many LCDs that do support true 24-bit color don"t bother to mention it in their spec sheets, while many that support only 18-bit color trumpet the fact that they are "24-bit compatible."

Most LCD makers produce three or more series of LCDs. Entry-level models are often analog-only, even in 19" and 21" sizes, and have slow response times. Midrange models usually accept analog or digital inputs, and generally have response times fast enough for anything except 3D gaming and similarly demanding uses. The best models may be analog/digital hybrids or digital-only, and have very fast response times. Choose an entry-level model only if you are certain that you will never use the display for anything more than word processing, web browsing, and similarly undemanding tasks. If you need a true CRT-replacement display, choose a midrange or higher model with a digital interface and the fastest response time you are willing to pay for.

Decide what panel size and resolution is right for you. Keep in mind that when you choose a specific LCD model, you are also effectively choosing the resolution that you will always use on that display.

Buy the LCD locally if possible. Whether or not you buy locally, insist on a no-questions-asked return policy. LCDs are more variable than CRT monitors, both in terms of unit-to-unit variation and in terms of usability with a particular graphics adapter. This is particularly important if you are using an analog interface. Some analog LCDs simply don"t play nice with some analog graphics adapters. Also, LCDs vary from unit to unit in how many defective pixels they have and where those are located. You might prefer a unit with five defective pixels near the edges and corners rather than a unit with only one or two defective pixels located near the center of the screen.

If you buy locally, ask the store to endorse the manufacturer"s warranty that is, to agree that if the LCD fails you can bring it back to the store for a replacement rather than dealing with the hassles of returning the LCD to the maker.

If possible, test the exact LCD you plan to buy (not a floor sample) before you buy it. Ideally, and particularly if you will use the analog interface, you should test the LCD with your own system, or at least with a system that has a graphics adapter identical to the one you plan to use. We"d go to some extremes to do this, including carrying our desktop system down to the local store. But if that isn"t possible for some reason, still insist on seeing the actual LCD you plan to buy running. That way, you can at least determine if there are defective pixels in locations that bother you. Also, use a neutral gray screen with no image to verify that the backlight evenly illuminates the entire screen. Some variation is unavoidable, but one or more corners should not be especially darker than the rest of the display, nor should there be any obvious "hot" spots.

Recommended Brands: Our opinion, confirmed by our readers and colleagues, is that NEC-Mitsubishi, Samsung, Sony, and ViewSonic make the best LCDs available. Their LCDs particularly their midrange and better models provide excellent image quality and are quite reliable. You"re likely to be happy with an LCD from any of these manufacturers.

Stick with good name brands and buy a midrange or higher model from within that name brand. That doesn"t guarantee that you"ll get a good LCD, but it does greatly increase your chances. The LCD market is extremely competitive. If two similar models differ greatly in price, the cheaper one likely has significantly worse specs. If the specs appear similar, the maker of the cheaper model has cut corners somewhere, whether in component quality, construction quality, or warranty policies.

A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is one of the most enduring and fundamental technologies found in monitors, televisions, tablets, and smartphones. TVs and monitors once used cathode ray tubes (CRTs) to provide the image on your screen. But CRTs were bulky and contained dangerous chemicals. Once LCDs became affordable, they replaced CRTs.

An LCD features a panel of liquid crystal molecules. The molecules can be induced using an electrical current to take certain patterns which either block or allow light to pass through. An LCD TV or monitor has a light source at the rear of the display, which lights up the crystals. LCDs commonly use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL) to provide the TV or monitor backlight.

To provide a color image on your screen, the LCD has red, green, and blue sub-pixels in each screen pixel. Transistors within the display control the direction of light each pixel emits, which then passes through either a red, green, or blue filter.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are small semiconductors that emit visible light when an electrical current passes through them. LEDs are typically more efficient and longer-lasting than traditional lighting.

While manufacturers often use "LED" in place of "LCD," an LED TV is also a type of LCD. Instead of CCFL tubes to provide the LCDs backlight, rows of LEDs provide the backlight. The LEDs give better control of the light, as well as greater efficiency as it is possible to control individual LEDs.

For accuracy, a TV or monitor description should read "LED-Backlit LCD Monitor." But that is a) a mouthful and b) doesn"t allow for the creation of a separate marketable product. That"s not to say there aren"t differences between the two.

However, both LED and LCD monitors have different technologies that make certain panels more appealing to gamers, film buffs, designers, and so on. You should also note that on older screens, the difference between an LCD and LED TV or monitor is more pronounced, due to the relative age of the two lighting options.

There are several different types of LED and LCD monitors. When you"re trying to buy a new TV or monitor, understanding the differences and the terminology will help you bag a better deal. Here are some of the most common variations of the LED and LCD panels.

An Edge-Lit LED TV or monitor has its LEDs arranged around the rim of the display, behind the LCD panels facing the screen. The Edge-Lit option allows for slimmer designs, uses fewer LEDs, and can bring the cost of a new screen down. Light reflects across the screen uniformly to create the image.

A Full-Array LED display uses a grid of LED lights behind the LCD. The LEDs shine outwards directly towards the LCD, creating a bright and uniform picture. Full-Array LED panels enjoy the efficiency benefits of LEDs.

For the best image reproduction, a Full-Array LED display may include local dimming. Local dimming means that groups of LEDs can switch on and off as required to provide better overall control of the brightness level.

The display uses advanced electronics and programming to control the RGB LEDs accurately, along with more LEDs. The combination increases the cost of an RGB LED screen significantly for what most viewers would consider a marginal improvement. RGB LED displays never became mainstream because of their higher cost.

Without a doubt, OLED TVs and monitors (and even smartphone screens) have incredible color depth. But that does come at a cost. The latest generation of flagship smartphones all feature OLED screens, and it is a contributing factor to their massive cost. Another consideration is power. An OLED screen consumes more power than other LED-backlit screens and standard LCD screens.

Just as there are types of LED monitor technology, so is there LCD monitor and TV technology, too. The type of LCD tech powering your screen makes a difference to the final picture. Here"s what you need to look out for.

Twisted nematic (TN) was one of the first LCD panel types, dating back to the 1980s. TN panels have fast response time. Most of the fastest gaming monitors use a TN LCD panel to offer exceptionally fast refresh rates, up to 240Hz. That level of refresh isn"t necessary for most people, but it can make a difference for top-level gamers (for instance, in reducing motion blur and image transition smoothness).

While a VA LCD panel has a better color range than a TN panel, they also have a slower refresh rate. They also usually cost more and, as such, are rarely marketed toward gamers. Between TN panels and IPS panels (read below), VA is the least popular LCD panel technology.

In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels are considered the best LCD panel technology for a variety of reasons. An IPS panel offers very wide viewing angles with very fast refresh rates. They"re not as fast as a TN panel, but IPS panels are widely available at 144Hz. At the time of writing, the first few 240Hz IPS LCD panels are hitting the market, although they are extremely expensive for a marginal gain.

Color-wise, IPS panels are excellent. High-quality IPS LCD panel prices continue to fall. However, there are several reasons why you shouldn"t buy a ridiculously cheap IPS gaming monitor.

The type of LCD panel you need depends on its use. Gamers want fast response times and rich depth of color, which is why IPS panels are a great option. If you"re more concerned about picture quality for your favorite films, an OLED panel will perform extremely well.

Still, now you know the terminology behind LCD panels and the pros and cons to each type, you can make an informed decision for your TV or monitor upgrade. But wait, the type of LCD or LED panel isn"t the only thing to consider. Take a moment to learn about the differences between 4K, Ultra HD, and 8K screens.

These LCD displays are the most common among others, mainly because they are lightweight, produce the best images, and use less power. The display is composed of millions of pixels that form images.

If you are looking for information about LCD Monitors (see HP monitors) then you are at the right place. You will find everything you want to know about LCD Monitor with its definition, description, function, benefits, how to use it, where to buy, and links for reviews and comparisons to make the most out of your investment.

An LCD monitor (Liquid Crystal Display Monitor) is a video display device commonly used in computers and televisions. It is a flat panel display as opposed to the more traditional cathode-ray tube (CRT) for television sets and oscilloscope monitors.

Also, this flat panel display has other advantages over CRT displays that include higher resolution, brighter images, better contrast ratios, deeper black ranges, more color palettes, and most importantly extremely lower power demands. In most cases, LCD monitors are lightweight and thinner than CRT monitors, which makes them perfect as portable monitors, too.

There are various types of LCD monitors on the market, with each having its pros and cons. Some are designed to provide wide viewing angles, while others are made to provide great image quality. If you are looking for an LCD monitor for your Mac Mini, PC, or laptop, here are the main types to choose from;

Twisted Nematic (TN) is one of the most common LCD technologies. It has been the dominant technology for regular home and office displays from 2001 to 2010 until it was replaced by better alternative technologies of In-Plane Switching (IPS), and VA.

One of the biggest selling points of TN displays is their incredibly fast response time, which is at 1ms. This makes them excellent for competitive FPS gaming, or for that awesome snappy feel when browsing the web or editing photos.

Vertical Alignment (VA) panels are a type of LCD display panel that features better contrast ratios and black uniformity when compared to IPS and TN panels.

The additional characteristics of this type of LCD monitor include high image quality, adaptability to bright light conditions, color accuracy, and competitive pricing - all factors which have made them very popular.

At the back of the LCD display, there is a backlight that emits white light. It goes through a horizontal polarizer; this is a kind of filter that allows only horizontal polarized light beams to pass through it.

Most modern LCD monitors have several parts that work together to produce an image. The main parts include;The panel,The cables (power cable and connectivity cables)The stand

LCD Monitor is one of the most important technologies that exist today, especially if you are working on a project. One of the very first LCD monitors was developed in 1970 by inventor J. Fergason (see also who created the first monitor historically).

Before that, cathode ray displays were bulky, consumed a lot of electricity, did not last a long time, and did not produce great images like today’s Acer LCD monitor, Dell LCD monitor, or AOC LCD monitor.

It is not until 1981 when Solartron introduced the first color LCD monitor; his name is always mentioned when one is researching thehistory ofmonitors. Since then, LCD monitors have evolved at an alarming rate. Even now, more innovations are being made to make them more durable and useful for customers.

The inventor of the LCD monitor is inventor J. Fergason. He was a business entrepreneur as well as an American inventor. He was born on January 12, 1934, and died on December 9, 2008.

Tests have proved that Samsung monitors such as Samsung u32j590 31.5 16 9 4k UHD LCD monitor and AOC 27b1h 27 LCD monitor black are much better than the traditional cathode ray and Plasma monitors. Why?

LCD is the best technology for most people, but it does have its downsides. The most obvious one is price. While LCD panels are getting cheaper, they"re still more expensive than CRT displays.

An LCD Monitor gives sharp clear image quality with its high resolution. The high resolution means viewing more pixels on the screen for a superior picture. Combining super-resolution, vivid colors, and extreme brightness, LCD monitors will amaze you. Nonetheless, when looking for your movies monitor, it is essential to go for high-resolution models.

The price of an LCD monitor depends on its size and features. Generally, prices range from roughly $150 to over $2000, although some models may be less expensive or more expensive.

There are various models of LCD monitors on the market. The power consumption of each model depends on the display size, resolution, brightness, etc. The power consumption of a 19-inch LCD monitor averages around 20 watts.

There are various brands that manufacture LCD monitors. Some of the most common brands include:Lenovo such as Lenovo l22e 20 21.5-inch LCD backlit lcd monitorDELL such as dell 2407wfp 24-inch widescreen ultrasharp lcd monitorSamsung such as Samsung 32 curved 1920x1080 HDMI 60hz 4ms fhd lcd monitorAcerHPLG such as LG 34 ips lcd ultrawide fhd freesync monitor blackSanyoSony

Huge number of professionals enjoy numerous benefits of LCD technology. No matter what you do, whether you use your computer monitor for editing videos, graphic design, programming, or if you are someone who plays computer games frequently, you will need the best LCD because of its great features.

LED monitors (a form of LCD) are your best choice as monitors for graphic design. They are a bit pricier than VA panels but the difference in performance is worth it. You get a faster response time and better color rendition while keeping everything within a budget.

If you are a photographer, working with monitors for photo editing is as important as the camera you work with. The key feature you should look for is backlight. LED"s (a form of LCD) will have brighter, sharper blacks than that of an regular LCD, making them ideal for the digital photo editor. The fact is also that you won"t have to spend a fortune as there are many affordable options.

In this category LCD monitor represents an excellent choice. You can have all features of a business-style monitor with full customibility according to what your work requires. We must point out that you should look at monitors for programming that provide vibrant colors and excellent viewing angles usually found in a 4k monitor - see Ultrawide Vs. 4K here - which may not be within your budget. If you must compromise than go for these budget monitors we reviewed.

I have made it simple for you to pick the best computer LCD monitors currently by listing them in this section. I have evaluated each monitor based on its price, display technology, panel type, size, inputs, speakers, ergonomics, and video performance.

If you want to buy an LCD monitor, there are several key factors to consider. They include screen size, screen resolution, response time, brightness, and refresh rate.

When buying an LCD monitor, one of the most important parameters to consider is screen resolution (the number of pixels). The higher the resolution, like in these 40 inch 4K monitors, the more you will see your documents (see here which monitors are our top choice for reading), spreadsheets, or photos on your screen. You"ll also enjoy sharper images and smoother lines.

The refresh rate of a small LCD monitor, curved LCD monitor, or a touch screen LCD monitor is very important, especially when playing video games. The refresh rate is measured in Hertz or Hz. It refers to the number of times the picture on the screen is refreshed per second. With 60Hz there could be plenty of ghosting, but with 120hz monitors, or, even better, 144Hz monitors, the difference will be obvious.

Screen size is also an important thing to consider when you"re in the market for a new LCD monitor. The most common sizes used for monitors are 14, 17,21, 27,32 and 42 inches. Anything less than a 24 inch monitor would be considered a small LCD monitor.

These are the required steps to install an LCD monitor. Your new monitor can come with all the necessary accessories you"ll need, including cables and screws.

The first step to installing any LCD monitor is to unbox the product. Feel free to take your time as you unpack and familiarize yourself with the product. Look at all of the contents and verify that everything is accounted for.

The second step to installing an LCD monitor is gathering the tools required for the job such as a screwdriver, gloves, and screws and the cables needed.

Most monitors come with an instruction manual that can be read to better understand how to install the LCD screen. The user manual details the screen resolution, cable connection placement, and how to mount the monitor to its stand.

To connect an LCD monitor to a computer using a cable, insert one end of the cable into the appropriate port at the rear or the side of the computer. Connect the other end to the display.

To clean the LCD monitor of your computer, find some monitor wipes. These are available at most office supply stores and are perfect for cleaning monitor screens.

Many monitor experts recommend that you purchase a monitor cleaning kit because these kits include all the products that you will need to effectively clean your monitor. This kit contains a monitor cleaning solution, which you can use to clean any oil or dirt off the surface of your monitor.

Yes, LCD monitors are suitable for gaming. High resolution, high refresh rates, and low response times are some of the features that make LCD monitors suitable for both professional gamers and amateur gamers.

Yes, LCD monitors are suitable for business. Business owners with limited space, or workers traveling on business, now can take their lightweight computer monitor with them. Moreover, since convenience is your number one goal in that case, it helps to have monitors with speakers built into them already!

It is also important that the monitor has some type of heat sink; the way it dissipates heat away from the circuitry. The most common heat sink is a base plate or duct that channels air through the back of the monitor. This helps prevent discoloration on the screen that can happen with some LCD monitors when they are left in a car continuously.

LCD monitors use cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) to illuminate the display while LED monitors use diode-based lights. Also, in terms of eye strain, visuals, and energy consumption, LEDs outperform LCDs.

IPS is a technology used in LCD screens. IPS monitors are preferred by professionals for their true-to-life color representation, wide viewing angles, and superior-high-quality image clarity.

They are the ultimate solution for professional photo editing, graphic designing, and video editing. Generally, LCD monitors are the most affordable and popular display options available today (see monitors under 200 dolars). These monitors are ideal for both office and home use, whether you want to game or watch movies. As for games exclusively, curved gaming monitors, which are mostly IPS, are especially comfortable for your eyes and they are probably the ones to turn to (see also top curved monitors overall)

As will be covered in its own section below, gaming monitors may also include “adaptive syncing” technology that virtually eliminates tearing and stuttering by having the monitor match the refresh-rate of frames being pushed out by your graphics card.

Fairly new to the consumer market, the curved-screen craze that started around 2014 with Samsung and LG TVs has made its way to computer monitors. Just like ultrawide monitors, curved monitor displays have extended left-and-right width that curves in towards the viewer. Since its inception, the main purpose of this feature has been to provide more immersion. Ultimately, these monitors can present a higher sense of depth that traditional flat-panel displays cannot.

On the surface, PC displays are just screens that present various images—but clearly there’s way more here to consider than meets the eye. Now it’s time to go inside the monitor to see how a computer’s display hardware works.

The differences between LCD and LED technology are huge factors in determining what works for your end-goal and budget, and they’re the most common acronyms you’ll come across on computer monitor product pages.

Liquid-crystal display (LCD) technology was first on the scene for TVs but didn’t come to computer monitors until the mid-90s. The name comes from the fact that these displays have screens that consist of two pieces of glass that house liquid in between them. From there, the screen is divided into thousands upon thousands (sometimes millions) of rows and columns, better known as pixels (a term coined in the 1960s to abbreviate “picture element”).

Now, the hardware parts that push out the picture you see on your LCD-monitor screen are known as cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs). These lamps give your LCD monitor a lifespan of about 30,000 hours. Because the technology is older, these products are usually thicker and heavier. Few of them support resolutions above Full HD (1920×1080, width by height), and the color-contrast range may also be limited at times. If you’re concerned about your environmental footprint, the mercury pollution that these monitors may emit is something you will need to properly address at the end of the product’s lifecycle.

On the plus side, LCD displays come at a lower price point and do not suffer from burn-in, a negative effect that occurs if you leave your screen on and the last image displayed remains lightly on the screen—even when it’s turned off.

Technically, LED displays are also LCD monitors since they have the same liquid between their two-piece glass screens. The difference lies within the hardware that’s used to shoot out the image. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are used in place of a LCD display’s fluorescent lamps. Because of this, LED monitors are brighter and consume less power than LCD screens, ultimately boasting a lifespan of about 50,000 hours.

The technology for light-emitting diodes first came about in the early 1960s and were initially only able to produce red color. Of course the color capability of these diodes has evolved, but the efficiency and high level of performance has been consistent. On paper, LED monitors come at a higher price point because of their impressive color contrast and picture quality. If you’re looking for a screen to game on, you’ll have to go LED for the noticeably faster response time compared to LCD displays.

Now that we’ve got an understanding of liquid-crystal displays and the two types of backlighting tech behind them, it’s time to get into the different panel types that LCD monitor screens have and how they relate to your computing needs. Just because certain panel types cost more than others does not mean that more expensive is generally better. It all comes down to which panel type’s features can best serve the tasks of general use, gaming, or professional video/image-editing applications, which will in term depend on color-reproduction technology, viewing angles, response times, and refresh rates.

If you’re a hardcore PC gamer, then twisted-nematic (TN) panels may be your first screen of choice. TN-panel computer monitors boast the highest refresh rates and fastest response times. Being one of the oldest display technologies, TN panels produce picture by utilizing translucent nematic liquid crystals within glass plates, a color filter and two lined filters (one vertical, the other horizontal). Due to the polarizing effect that occurs within TN panels, these types of monitors have the poorest color presentation and viewing angles. On the other hand, these displays are the most-affordable monitors, making them perfect for gamers who have already shelled out a lot of cash for their gaming battlestation.

Compared to TN panels, in-plane switching (IPS) panels house and emit the best viewing angles and most accurate colors. IPS panels were specifically designed to make up for the limitations of traditional TN panels. Perfect for graphic-design artists or cinematographers, IPS computer monitors have their inner crystal liquids adjust their alignment on a single plane (hence the name) to show accurate, true-to-life colors from any viewing angle.

Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is found on many recent televisions and smartphones, is currently in the works for computer monitors. OLED screen technology consists of carbon-based materials that emit light when powered with electricity. Overall, OLED displays do not require a backlight or filters to produce their colors and moving images. They are also great for manufacturers because they are easy to make and are physically light for easy exporting and delivery.

In 1987, the world was first introduced to monitors that housed 4:3 screens with a 640×480 resolution. As of writing, most computer monitors use widescreen ratios and Full HD resolutions, with the most popular being 16:9 at 1920×1080 pixels. By doubling up the width + height dimensions within an aspect ratio, you can get sharper resolutions (clearer visuals) due to more pixels being packed into the same aspect ratio. Of course, these aspect ratios and resolutions have also evolved due to more variations, such as curved displays and UltraWide monitors.

Along with plenty of monitor accessories to choose from, one of the main things that needs to be addressed is how and where you’ll be viewing your monitor. Classically, monitors have been left connected to their included stands and placed on desks. This will usually work in the majority of scenarios, but not all spaces are exactly the same. Unless it’s a really old model, today’s monitors come with VESA-mounting capabilities. This opens up the door to clearing desk space and creating unique computing stations.

Even though some say the picture quality of an LED TV is better, there is no straight answer for which has better picture quality since both TVs use the same kind of screen. For instance, a higher-end LCD TV can have a better quality than a low-end LED TV, but if you look at high-end models of either TV, the picture quality will be comparable.

LED TVs use energy-efficient light emitting diodes (LED) for backlighting. These consume less power than cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) used in traditional LCD televisions. Power savings are typically 20-30%.

Flat Screen LCDs, about an inch or two thick are more expensive, but also more popular because of their sleek look and the flexible options of standing on a surface or mounting on a wall.

Front projection LCDs or projectors, which project an image onto the front of the screen. The TV itself is just a box installed anywhere in a room, which projects the image onto a flat screen hung on the wall as large as 300 inches.

Rear projection LCDs, where the image is sent from the rear of the TV to the screen in front. Rear projection LCDs are wide, heavy and only available in large sizes (60" and up).

License-based services includes pricing information for Office 365, Enterprise Mobility, and Security E3, and Dynamics 365. License-based pricing section includes current and preview pricing and the offer list matrix. Price lists include list price and estimated retail prices (ERP) for offers in all supported currencies. The offer list matrix includes market availability and other important information about the offers. These files are updated on the first day of every month.

Usage-based services includes pricing information for Microsoft Azure and Visual Studio. You can also use the Azure Services in CSP Pricing Calculator. The usage-based download includes both the CSP price lists for all supported currencies and the Shared Services pricing files in ERP. These files are updated on the first day of every month.

Microsoft Azure Reserved Instances includes pricing information for all supported currencies for Azure Reserved Instances. The pricing download also includes the Shared Services pricing in ERP. These files are updated on the first day of every month.

Software subscriptions includes pricing for term-based software subscriptions for all supported currencies. The price file includes all supported currencies with list price and estimated retail prices (ERP). These files are updated on the first day of every month.

Azure plan pricing includes pricing information for Azure plan consumption services and Azure plan reservation pricing. Prices are direct prices or ERP and can be retrieved for any given supported market. The data in these files is refreshed every day.

Marketplace includes pricing for independent software vendor (ISV) solutions from Microsoft"s commercial marketplace. Prices are retrieved per market. The data in these files is refreshed every day.

License-based services include a price list preview, provided 30 days in advance of any changes. To see the price list preview, go to Sell > Pricing and offers. EndOfSale offers will not be present in current month"s price list.There"s no price preview for usage-based services since these services are dynamic. The following table explains how to read the price list table.

License-based services can be acquired as either base offers or add-ons. Only base offers are discoverable and purchasable via the Partner Center catalog. Partners need to apply add-ons only after purchasing the base offers. The license-based price list Secondary license type column includes information about each offer and its type. Base offers have Non-specific values in the price list secondary license type column and can be purchased in the catalog. Secondary license type values of add-on can"t be purchased in the catalog. To purchase these add-ons:

Add-ons are listed regardless of their segment. So a commercial Add-on could include education base offers. Or education base offers could include commercial base offers. This is by design. Partners should always use the prerequisite lists to understand that at least one of the prerequisites must exist before acquiring the add-on.

Partners transact in regions that are assigned when they"re on-boarded. The European region is unique since this region supports more than one currency. Partners request pricing based on the customer"s market but will be billed in their currency, which may be different than the customer market currency. In these cases, a partner will get pricing in all supported currencies for the customer market they request pricing information for. All European market price lists will include pricing in all supported currencies in the European region. Partners will be billed based on the market price sheet and currency line item aligning with the partner billing currency.

The multi-currency support enables a key scenario which had been blocked for years in traditional license-based and software pricing, enabling a partner to purchase a product SKU for a customer in a different country when the product SKU isn"t available in the partner"s country. This scenario is now enabled and no longer blocked in new commerce. Products now available in this scenario include some of the calling plans only available in specific EU markets. Other examples include Business Voice product SKUs, only available in GB, but can now be purchased by non-GB EU partners for GB customers.

On the Pricing and offers page, view the Cloud Reseller Offer Matrix, to read about the different SKUs and product bundles available to you to sell. The offers matrix includes which offers are available per locale. If an item is listed on the price list but not on the offer matrix, it means that the products can"t be ordered yet. As soon as they"re available to order, the offers matrix is updated.

Most price lists include a list price, the price the partner is billed, and the estimated retail price. Estimated retail price (ERP) is also called Microsoft suggested retail price or MSRP. These two values, ERP and MSRP, represent the estimated market value of the products if a customer were to purchase the products directly from Microsoft.

The new commerce experiences for license-based services include many new capabilities and are available to all Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs). For more information, see new commerce experiences overview.

Pricing strategy in new commerce Microsoft 365/Dynamics 365 remains the same between traditional and new commerce. In principle, this means each currency will have one price and monthly plan charges for a term will remain constant through the remainder of the term. Partners will continue to be billed in their country currency.

New commerce license-based price lists requests are by market/country. For example, if a partner wants to get pricing for products sold to a German (DE) customer, they would ask for the German (DE) price list. For European countries (and ONLY for European countries), these market-based price list files include pricing in all six supported European currencies (SEK, NOK, CHF, DKK, GBP, EUR). This is to enable the partner to understand how much they"ll be billed in their currency regardless of the customer market. If a partner in Great Britain (GB), for example, wants to purchase a product SKU for a customer in Germany, they would get the DE price sheet and need only the Great Britain Pounds (GBP) pricing because the GBP price point is what the partner will be billed. Supporting pricing by market aligns the product availability to the pricing, enabling partners to get pricing for markets even when the product may not be available to customers their own country. This design also can support future scenarios if different markets with the same currency need different pricing.

Price lists include basic information about pricing (how much it costs). The offer matrix includes purchase information about the products (how to buy it). Much of the information included in these download files is also accessible through the various Partner Center APIs (catalog APIs and price sheet APIs). Price lists require the partner to select the market for the pricing they request while the Offer-list matrix is agnostic of market.

Some markets include geo-specific discounts on top of the CSP margin discounts. Partners may discover pricing for select product SKUs having deeper discounts in some markets depending on the product SKU. Markets they may include a deeper discount are the United Kingdom, India, Australia or Canada. These discounts are very targeted and only impact a very small number of product SKUs. One example:

There should be general consistency between tradition and new commerce pricing for most product SKUs. However, partners may notice slight differences when comparing legacy traditional license-based pricing to new commerce pricing.

The price list includes termDuration data that explains how long the term lasts. Many products support both monthly (P1M) and annual (P1Y). However, not all products support monthly term. A few examples of this include: Microsoft Intune, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, some Phone System and Calling plans, and various Exchange Online stand-alone products. Partners should reference the current price list and filter by termDuration to view product SKUs by term.

ProductID/SKUID/AvailabilityID. The Availability ID is only returned in the GetAvailablities API. When purchasing through the Partner Center user interface, it"s automatically included.

New commerce supports future pricing. Partners can export and view future pricing for the coming month. Traditional license-based price lists included flags for new offers, deleted offers, changed and unchanged. New commerce pricing files enable partners to track these changes by using the EffectiveStartDate and EffectiveEndDates.

Existing license-based subscriptions enforced ownership limits, or the number of subscriptions a partner could purchase for a customer. These typically were small business SKUs or offers with less than a 300-seat maximum. In traditional license-based subscriptions, partners could see the limits in the offer list matrix for existing seat-based products as Concurrent describing the number of subscriptions the partner could have. New commerce implements a seat constraint across the purchased product SKUs. New commerce small business subscriptions with less than a 300 maximum will apply the maximum at the product SKU level. So a partner could have multiple small business subscriptions for a customer as long as the aggregate of the seat counts stays under the declared maximum. The maximum for small business applies regardless of where the customer"s product SKU came from, that is, multiple partner or channels.

Traditional license-based included a Concurrent setting with a limit value, usually of two. These settings mean the customer could have a maximum of two subscriptions for the offer from a given Partner.

The maximum limits are pooled on the customer tenant. A customer could have 100 licenses of a product SKU from one partner, and another 100 from a second partner. But the aggregate limit can"t exceed the maximum. A transaction that exceeds the limit returns an error that includes the remaining number of available licenses, helping them to understand how many licenses are left under the maximum available. The error message will look like this: The requested number of 51 seats exceeds the remaining limit of 50 seats allowed per subscription for the CatalogItemId - CFQ7TTC0LCHC:0002:CFQ7TTC0KFFN. Partners will also see this information when using the APIs to add a lineItem to the cart that exceeds the limit as an error property availableQuantity. More information about the cart lineItem property can be found in the API documentation cart resource.

Pricing and offer matrix APIs build on the existing price sheet API infrastructure that was released to support Azure plan. This API is now extended to support license-based new commerce pricing. The price sheet and offer matrix APIs supports pricing for updated new commerce license-based online services only. It doesn"t support traditional office license-based services available for download only from Partner Center pricing and offers page.

First, let"s tamp down expectations. OLED monitors are far from mainstream among PC displays, and that won"t shift dramatically next year. In September, market researcher Trendforce predicted that OLED monitors will represent 2 percent of the monitor market in 2023. That"s far from mainstream. IPS monitors, for instance, represented 43 percent of monitors shipped in 2021.

So, if we had to bet on what type of monitor any given person was buying in the next year or two, our chips would be on LCD. Advertisement

Choosing which type of monitor panel type to buy will depend largely on your intended usage and personal preference. After all, gamers, graphic designers, and office workers all have different requirements. Specific types of displays are best suited for different usage scenarios.

IPS monitor variations include S-IPS, H-IPS, e-IPS and P-IPS, and PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching), the latter being the latest iteration. Since these variations are all quite similar, they are all collectively referred to as “IPS-type” panels. They all claim to deliver the major benefits associated with IPS monitors – great color and ultra-wide viewing angles.

With regard to gaming, some criticisms IPS monitors include more visible motion blur coming as a result of slower response times, however the impact of motion blur will vary from user to user. In fact, mixed opinions about the “drawbacks” of IPS monitor for gaming can be found all across the web. Take this excerpt from one gaming technology writer for example: “As for pixel response, opinions vary. I personally think IPS panels are quick enough for almost all gaming. If your gaming life is absolutely and exclusively about hair-trigger shooters, OK, you’ll want the fastest response, lowest latency LCD monitor. And that means TN. For the rest of us, and certainly for those who place even a modicum of importance on the visual spectacle of games, I reckon IPS is clearly the best panel technology.” Read the full article here.

TN monitors, or “Twisted Nematic” monitors, are the oldest LCD panel types around. TN panels cost less than their IPS and VA counterparts and are a popular mainstream display technology for desktop and laptop displays.

Despite their lower perceived value, TN-based displays are the panel type preferred by competitive gamers. The reason for this is because TN panels can achieve a rapid response time and the fastest refresh rates on the market (like this 240Hz eSports monitor). To this effect, TN monitors are able to reduce blurring and screen tearing in fast-paced games when compared to an IPS or VA panel.

For general-purpose use, these shifts in color and contrast are often irrelevant and fade from conscious perception. However, this color variability makes TN monitors a poor choice for color-critical work like graphic design and photo editing. Graphic designers and other color-conscious users should also avoid TN displays due to their more limited range of color display compared to the other technologies.

Vertical alignment (VA) panel technology was developed to improve upon the drawbacks of TN. Current VA-based monitors offer muchhigher contrast, better color reproduction, and wider viewing angles than TN panels. Variations you may see include P-MVA, S-MVA, and AMVA (Advanced MVA).

These high-end VA-type monitors rival IPS monitors as the best panel technology for professional-level color-critical applications. One of the standout features of VA technology is that it is particularly good at blocking light from the backlight when it’s not needed. This enables VA panels to display deeper blacks and static contrast ratios of up to several times higher than the other LCD technologies. The benefit of this is that VA monitors with high contrast ratios can deliver intense blacks and richer colors.

MVA and other recent VA technologies offer the highest static contrast ratios of any panel technology. This allows for an outstanding visual experience for movie enthusiasts and other users seeking depth of detail. Higher-end, feature-rich MVA displays offer the consistent, authentic color representation needed by graphic designers and other pro users.

There is another type of panel technology that differs from the monitor types discussed above and that is OLED or “Organic Light Emitting Diode” technology. OLEDs differ from LCDs because they use positively/negatively charged ions to light up every pixel individually, while LCDs use a backlight, which can create an unwanted glow. OLEDs avoid screen glow (and create darker blacks) by not using a backlight. One of the drawbacks of OLED technology is that it is usually pricier than any of the other types of technology explained.

When it comes to choosing the right LCD panel technology, there is no single right answer. Each of the three primary technologies offers distinct strengths and weaknesses. Looking at different features and specs helps you identify which monitor best fits your needs.

LCD or “Liquid Crystal Display” is a type of monitor panel that embraces thin layers of liquid crystals sandwiched between two layers of filters and electrodes.

While CRT monitors used to fire electrons against glass surfaces, LCD monitors operate using backlights and liquid crystals. The LCD panel is a flat sheet of material that contains layers of filters, glass, electrodes, liquid crystals, and a backlight. Polarized light (meaning only half of it shines through) is directed towards a rectangular grid of liquid crystals and beamed through.

Note: When searching for monitors you can be sure to come across the term “LED Panel” at some point or another. An LED panel is an LCD screen with an LED – (Light Emitting Diode) – backlight. LEDs provide a brighter light source while using much less energy. They also have the ability to produce white color, in addition to traditional RGB color, and are the panel type used in HDR monitors.

Early LCD panels used passive-matrix technology and were criticized for blurry imagery. The reason for this is because quick image changes require liquid crystals to change phase quickly and passive matrix technology was limited in terms of how quickly liquid crystals could change phase.

Thanks to active-matrix technology, LCD monitor panels were able to change images very quickly and the technology began being used by newer LCD panels.

A computer monitor is an output device that displays information in pictorial or textual form. A discrete monitor comprises a visual display, support electronics, power supply, housing, electrical connectors, and external user controls.

The display in modern monitors is typically an LCD with LED backlight, having by the 2010s replaced CCFL backlit LCDs. Before the mid-2000s,CRT. Monitors are connected to the computer via DisplayPort, HDMI, USB-C, DVI, VGA, or other proprietary connectors and signals.

Modern computer monitors are mostly interchangeable with television sets and vice versa. As most computer monitors do not include integrated speakers, TV tuners, nor remote controls, external components such as a DTA box may be needed to use a computer monitor as a TV set.

Multiple technologies have been used for computer monitors. Until the 21st century most used cathode-ray tubes but they have largely been superseded by LCD monitors.

The first computer monitors used cathode-ray tubes (CRTs). Prior to the advent of home computers in the late 1970s, it was common for a video display terminal (VDT) using a CRT to be physically integrated with a keyboard and other components of the workstation in a single large chassis, typically limiting them to emulation of a paper teletypewriter, thus the early epithet of "glass TTY". The display was monochromatic and far less sharp and detailed than on a modern monitor, necessitating the use of relatively large text and severely limiting the amount of information that could be displayed at one time. High-resolution CRT displays were developed for specialized military, industrial and scientific applications but they were far too costly for general use; wider commercial use became possible after the release of a slow, but affordable Tektronix 4010 terminal in 1972.

Some of the earliest home computers (such as the TRS-80 and Commodore PET) were limited to monochrome CRT displays, but color display capability was already a possible feature for a few MOS 6500 series-based machines (such as introduced in 1977 Apple II computer or Atari 2600 console), and the color output was a speciality of the more graphically sophisticated Atari 800 computer, introduced in 1979. Either computer could be connected to the antenna terminals of an ordinary color TV set or used with a purpose-made CRT color monitor for optimum resolution and color quality. Lagging several years behind, in 1981 IBM introduced the Color Graphics Adapter, which could display four colors with a resolution of 320 × 200 pixels, or it could produce 640 × 200 pixels with two colors. In 1984 IBM introduced the Enhanced Graphics Adapter which was capable of producing 16 colors and had a resolution of 640 × 350.

There are multiple technologies that have been used to implement liquid-crystal displays (LCD). Throughout the 1990s, the primary use of LCD technology as computer monitors was in laptops where the lower power consumption, lighter weight, and smaller physical size of LCDs justified the higher price versus a CRT. Commonly, the same laptop would be offered with an assortment of display options at increasing price points: (active or passive) monochrome, passive color, or active matrix color (TFT). As volume and manufacturing capability have improved, the monochrome and passive color technologies were dropped from most product lines.

The first standalone LCDs appeared in the mid-1990s selling for high prices. As prices declined they became more popular, and by 1997 were competing with CRT monitors. Among the first desktop LCD computer monitors was the
