Re: Opinions on Huge Monitors

My opinion:

When purchasing a monitor, you have two technology options: CRT and LCD. CRTs are the large, bulky units that have occupied desktops since the advent of the computer age, are surely being replaced by slimmer but huge LCDs.

Even though amount of gamers section and graphics pros section one's are switching to CRTs, the majority of PC users find LCDs more appealing or we can say a new trend setup by monitor manufacturer companies. CRTs have become more and more difficult to place i general and local shelves and asking for a huge commencement of space online, and most major manufacturers have discontinued their CRT lines altogether.


CRT monitors still beat LCDs in an important performance categories which consists of color, fidelity, viewing angles, and contrast. On the other hand LCDs are often able to customize a limited frame of colors as per survey usually 16.7 million, CRTs are capable of displaying an infinite range, a boon for graphic artists. CRTs also offer unlimited viewing angles, while the brightness and contrast on most LCDs generally drop off when viewed at large angles.

LCDs offer better advantages over CRTs. They provide a brighter screen, which really helps in office environments. It also offer clearer, crisper text; and have no geometric distortion or flicker problems which are usually observed on CRTs that cause eye problems. LCDs have even caught up to CRTs in the area of displaying moving images; CRTs were once far superior, but the playing field is now nearly level, with many manufacturers offering faster response times, meaning that on most LCDs, moving images will be free of ghosting and distortion.


LCDs are slightly more expensive as compared to CRTs. In general a decent 19-inch LCD will cost higher as compared to a 19-inch CRT's. A 19-inch LCD offers a much screen real estate as a 21-inch CRT, which would cost about the same. New technologies, such as LED-backlit LCD panels, are slowly emerging on the market, but the only ones which is been spotted so far are too expensive for the average consumer and regular class.

Re: Opinions on Huge Monitors

Let' s separate the section of user's according to their requirement fields:

Work Section:

Whether you work at home or at the office, there are three traits to look for in a productivity monitor. Bells and whistles are not as important as good image quality, a bright screen, and adjustability for viewing comfortably at long stretches.

Features required by this user:
  • Large image area to display more information
  • Adjustability
  • High brightness rating

Gamer Section:

When choosing a monitor for games, a bright and large screen is paramount. After that, color accuracy and image clarity play a big part in the quality of a gaming monitor. Lastly, it's connection options. Pixel response time is important, but not as much as it used to be. Most monitors have at least a 12ms response time as for most games this will more than suffice.

Features required by this user:
  • Bright screen
  • Color accuracy
  • Large display area
  • Multiple connection options
  • Pixel response time

Movies Section:

When digital DeMilles edit the key close-up in their masterwork, they want total artistic control, and they need crisp, accurate images. Movie buffs watching at home will want the same.

Features Required by this user category:
  • Low black level
  • Color accuracy
  • Large display area
  • Multiple connection options
  • Pixel response time

Re: Opinions on Huge Monitors

Few Points to remember before buying a LCD Monitor


Aspect ratio: The standard proportion in width to height for a computer monitor is 4:3, but some new displays have a wider format: 16:9 or 16:10, designed for viewing movies or HDTV in wide format.

Contrast ratio: A spec much hyped by manufacturers be suspicious of their claims, this is the difference in light intensity between the brightest white and the deepest black.

Digital and analog connections: LCDs are digital devices and thus have to convert analog (VGA) signals before they can be displayed. A graphics card with a digital video interface (DVI) can send the signal straight to the display in digital format--no conversion required.

HDMI: HDMI connections have become more common in the last year and it's the exception now when a monitor 22 inches and larger doesn't have one. If you're planning to use your monitor as a television, this is a good feature to have.

Luminance: Brightness; a measure of how much light a panel can produce. Luminance is expressed in either nits or candelas per square meter (cd/mē). A measurement of 200 to 250 nits is OK for most productivity tasks; 500 nits is better for TV and movies.


Pixel-response rate: This refers to how quickly a pixel can change colors, measured in milliseconds (ms); the lower the milliseconds, the faster the pixels can change, reducing the ghosting or streaking effect you might see in a moving or changing image.

Portrait/Landscape modes: Some LCDs pivot so that the longer edge can go horizontal (landscape mode) or vertical (portrait mode). This feature can be useful for desktop publishing, Web surfing, and viewing large spreadsheets, but don't pay extra for it if you won't use it.

Resolution: Make sure you are comfortable with an LCD's native resolution before you buy it. Remember, an LCD that scales its image to a nonnative resolution will never look as good.

Viewing angle: The physical structure of LCD pixels can cause the brightness and even the color of images to shift if you view them from an angle rather than facing the screen directly.
