An LCD monitor is a flat-panel screen that displays crisp, high-quality visuals made possible by liquid-crystal display (LCD) technology. Vivid colors and higher resolution images are transmitted through crystals that are reflected by light from a back-lit panel to create the multicolored pixels viewed on a screen. LCD monitors with TFT display technology are a powerhouse of a successful home office setup. Thin-filter transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) technology utilizes an active matrix where each pixel has a transistor attached so the reception and response are constant, as opposed to the passive matrix model used in earlier LCDs where the pixels waited for a signal that matched the matrix in order to refresh. This technology produces steady, clear images used to enhance visual performance in computer monitors, mobile phones, TVs, and back-up cameras for vehicles.
Advantages of LCD monitors and screens.
By design, LCD screen panels are thinner and more compact than a traditional computer monitor. Their sleek, flat monitor takes up less space, leaving more desktop area available for work. LCD monitors weigh considerably less than traditional computer monitors. With the help of monitor mounts and stands, users are able to hang LCD panels in conference rooms for screen sharing or to raise up their screens to provide more surface area on their desks. People also appreciate the borderless display screen featured on many LCD monitors because the image aspect ratio stays intact rather than cropping the image. The back-lit pixels in LCD panels make the screen brighter so it is viewable in both well-lit and dark rooms. Many models also come equipped with touch screen capability and built-in USB ports to connect your monitor cables to entertainment streaming services, gaming systems and LCD projectors. Plus, LCD panel design helps prevent images from leaving a ghost image, or “burn-in” mark, on the screen that sometimes occurs on older model monitors, which extends the life of your purchase.
Choosing the LCD monitor for your needs.
Needs vary between households and budgets which is why Best Buy carries multiple sizes and brands of LCD screens, and at different price points to fit your budget. LCD monitors and accessories help create the ideal remote work experience because of their large display and HDMI capabilities. Working on spreadsheets, editing photos or videos, or viewing multiple documents at once are a breeze when using an LCD panel as a secondary screen for a dual monitor view. Recreational and professional gamers are fond of using LCD screens with webcams that are either built in or bought as an accessory to live stream their games because of their superior quality visuals as well as the lower image contrast ratio which can be easier on gamers’ eyesight. Computer speakers also enhance the audiovisual experience of LCD monitors, whether you’re playing an online game or presenting during a virtual meeting.
