What is a PC Monitor?

The ABCs of LCDs & Plasma Monitors:

LCD uses liquid crystal to display images. Plasma generates its picture through hundreds of thousands of pixel cells. These next generation of PC Monitors are also flat screens as opposed to the boxy Cathode Ray Tube monitors (which have similar technologies to older television models.) The advantages of having a Plasma or LCD screen is its flat design gives you more space. Plus, they produce a sharper picture and perform better under most lighting conditions. When choosing a flat screen monitor, 17” like a Smart LCD is more than sufficient. Plus, way more affordable than the 18” or 19” units.
