What Kind Of Monitor Is Best For You?
Choosing the monitor that’s right for you boils down to a three things: screen size, picture quality and cost.
Most desktop monitors today have screens ranging from 19” to 29” but larger screens of 40” to 55” are also increasingly popular. It really depends on how you’re using your computer. If it’s just for emailing and word processing, a smaller screen should be sufficient. But if you’re using your computer for designing, gaming or for viewing movies, a larger screen may be a better choice.
The bulky CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors of yesterday have largely disappeared and been replaced by lighter, better quality LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitors. The ultra-slim flat panel LCD monitors available today boast higher resolutions and are more affordable than ever, making them especially popular choices.
LED (Light-Emitting Diode) monitors are a different type of LCD monitor – the only difference is in the backlighting technology. LCD monitors use fluorescent lamps to light the display, while LED monitors use the more energy-efficient light-emitting diode technology. LED monitors use up to 40% less energy and have no mercury, making them a more environmentally friendly choice. They also help reduce eye strain, which is important if you spend a lot of time in front of your computer.
LED monitors tend to be more expensive than LCDs, and the larger the screen size, the more you’ll typically pay. But when selecting a monitor your best bet, as always, is to go with the best quality and largest size that suits your budget.
