Does anyone know what a CRT monitor is? I know I had one around this office three years ago but I think it is hiding in the basement with the rest of my outdated hardware.
This is coming true for the majority of new and existing computer users in today's consumer market. Everyone is currently updating to an LCD monitor and we all know that it is an easy choice to make. The only problem now is that the market is literally inundated with hundreds of LCD monitor options from dozens of different manufacturers. But...but....which one do you choose?
Well, the first thing you should look for is a quality name brand. If you go for a budget odd name option, you get what you pay for and good luck a year down the road when it is dead or has a pixel problem and you have just gone over your warranty period. But even with a warranty, where are you going to get some odd generic no-name product fixed. You will usually have to pay to ship it to god knows where in North America or Europe where they will take two months finding out they can't do anything about it and will send you another monitor when one comes available. You see this is where they get you. First of all, you can't be without a monitor so you end up buying another one or hopefully you were smart enough to keep you old CRT monitor in the basement for the meantime. My point is, get a decent monitor from a good manufacturer. Don't go cheap, pay a little more for a higher end model and you will be rewarded with years of trouble free service.
Today I will be reviewing a excellent option for you to consider. Not only is it one of the brightest and clearest lcd monitor options I have reviewed here on Tweaknews, it also can serve as a small USB 2.0 hub for your desktop. Stick around, this might be the option for you.

What can TFT LCD Technology do for me?
Below is just a small list of what TFT LCD technology can do for your small business or home environment.
1.) Radiation - TFT LCD technology virtually eliminates radiation which is emitted from normal CRT monitor and can promote a healthier computing environment for your children at home and/or your work environment.
2.) Low Power Consumption - LCD monitors have a power consumption of about half of the equivalent CRT monitors.
3.) Colour - Colours on LCD's are much more vibrant that CRT monitors.
4.) Physical Size - One of the main advantages is the size difference. LCD monitors cover about 30% of the desk area than a standard CRT.
5.) Viewable Area - Now here is the kicker, if you buy a 17" CRT monitor, it's safe to say that you will have an actual viewing area of about ~16". Now, when a TFT LCD is said to be 17", the viewable area IS 17", which is a far more honest approach to marketing.
