Upgrade from CRT to TFT LCD Monitor

  Lawrence-255466 18:30 11 Aug 2006

Please can someone confirm if a TFT LCD monitor is measured across the diagonal or the horizontal. Also can anyone recommend a good monitor as there is so much conflicting advice in magazines - makes your head spin! All I want is good sharp image (photographs) and video editing.Price is an issue but suggestions are welcome. Thanks Cromwell.

all screens are measured diagonnally. One difference between CRTs and TFT/LCD is that the nominal CRT measurement is typically about 1" less than the viewable size (as part of the CRT is hidden in the casing), whereas TFT/LCD nominal = viewable. So a 15" CRT is roughly equal to a 14" TFT/LCD.

If you are not going to be too critical you'll probbaly find that most are up to the job. As it happens, I saw this 19" SONY on ebuyer today at £141. click here.

Also, have a look at the customer reviews for various screens on ebuyer, dabs etc.

That should have been "CRT measurement is typically about 1" MORE than the viewable size"
