- 7-way LCD Comparison

This may be enough to turn some of you away from your bulky / heavy old CRT monitor and invest in a slim brand spankin' new LCD. The Tech Report have checked out seven of them for us and also point out the advantages and disadvantages to making the switch from CRT to LCD. A good read if you're looking to pick up a new monitor sometime soon.

IDC IS PREDICTING manufacturers will ship more LCD screens than traditional CRT displays this year. That feat is especially remarkable given the fact LCDs have notoriously poor pixel response times, resolution scaling, and contrast ratios when compared with traditional CRT displays. Don't forget that, inch-for-inch, LCD screens typically cost twice as much as traditional CRT monitors, too.

Why, with all those faults, have LCDs become so popular? Maybe it's lust. Consumers could be turned onto LCD panels because they have more sex appeal than CRT monitors. Maybe it's all about body image. LCD screens are thinner and lighter than CRT monitors, and I hear they have fewer carbs, too. Maybe it's the fact some users can't stand to go back to CRTs after basking in even a moment of the glorious brightness and clarity of typical LCD screens. Whatever the motivation, LCDs are wildly popular.

Thus, we've whipped up a seven-way LCD comparison to commemorate what may turn out to be the year of the LCD. Read on to find out which screen is most likely to tempt you away from that trusty CRT.
