Ehh....

Ahhhhh (gasp of wonder and awe)

VS.

So Welcome to my blog! Today I am discussing the 5 major benefits of having an LCD monitor vs. a CRT monitor. I myself have a Gateway LCD monitor and it is so nice O:p. Primarily this list will give you interesting tidbits of info you might not have known of LCDs/CRTs but also it will make you laugh (hopefully) if you want to read the unadulterated full comparison of CRTs & LCDs click here. If not please read on!

So what is a CRT monitor? According to PCWorld.com, CRT monitors a.k.a. Cathode Ray Tube monitors are: “..analog displays that produce images based on phosphors with an electron beam.” I know sounds cool doesn’t it? Whereas LCD monitors or Liquid Crystal Display monitors utilize liquid crystals to display images. Now that you have a general idea of each item let find out why CRTs are never going to be better than LCDs.

5 Reason Countdown

5. LCD monitors can display P-E-R-F-E-C-T resolution sharpness whereas CRT screens cannot.

4. (Unless you have a super amazing video card!) Expect your CRT monitor to flicker images once in awhile due to its components. LCDs do not have this problem…EVER!

3. With an LCD you always get the viewing area you pay for. In other words, CRTs are bulky and as such tend to have a smaller viewing area than its full measured frame (so if you buy a 17” CRT monitor, you might only be viewing 16” images).

2. LCDs last longer than CRTs. Granted you pay a little more for an LCD monitor but they last MUCH longer than CRT screens. This means better for the environment!

1. The final (most) interesting factoid on LCDs that makes them so much better than CRTs is that they are easier to recycle!
