The LCD screen is the successor of the CRT screen, which takes a large space on your desktop. It's considered a new technology to change from using the CRT screen to LCD one. The LCD stands for "Liquid crystal display" as it depends on liquid crystal on its work. The liquid crystal is neither a solid nor a liquid. We can consider it a state between the both. This state needs small amount of heat to be a liquid and needs a small amount of cool to be a solid, which makes it very sensitive to temperature.
What I am going to talk about is not how the LCD screens work! But I am going to offer you help if you want to buy an LCD monitor, and also we will see a concise overview about the newest LCDs in the market.
Initially, there are some concepts you need to be aware about before buying an LCD monitor:
The size of the LCD monitor (width x height) expressed in pixels, every LCD monitor has its native resolution, which express all its performance.
2- Aspect ratio:
The ratio of the width to the height
e.g.: 4:3, 5:4, 16:9 or 16:10
The amount of light emitted from the monitor. It is known also as the "luminance" of the display.
These concepts are really sufficient to help you making a decision about a certain monitor.
Now, we will exhibit an overview about the latest 19'' LCD screens in the market.
