LCD vs plasma screen

What is Computer Monitor ?

A computer Monitor is a essential part of a computer system. Originally computer monitors were used for data processing while now they are used to display signals on a computer screen. The size of a computer monitor is variable. The price can effect the quality of the pictures, games and multimedia.

How many different types of computer monitors are there ?

CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) computer monitors were the most common computer monitors until flat panel screens became affordable. Similar to older TVs, CRT monitors still typically have much better contrast ratios and viewing angles than other computer monitor alternatives.


LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) computer monitors save a lot of space and can even be mounted on walls. They provide a wide viewing angle and come in sizes ranging from 17-inches to 60-inches.


Touchscreen computer monitors provide a new way of interacting with your computer with a touch-sensitive screen. This allows users to interact directly with the application on screen without need for a mouse or keyboard.


OLED (Organic Light Emitting Display) computer monitors are much thinner and brighter than LCD or Plasma screens. OLED monitors can also be placed on transparent surfaces, such as glass, allowing the user to see through them when not active.


Plasma computer monitors are less commonly used with computers due to their high operating temperatures, high power consumption, and fixed resolution.
