TFT Flat Panels

  EQ 22:42 03 Mar 2003

I want to change my Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 92 CRT monitor for a TFT flat panel but understand there may be problems with 'dead cells' can anyone tell me what this means? Also my graphics card is nvida geforce ultra 64MB would this have to changes or re-configured. Thanks

Dead cells or Dead Pixels are pixels that will stay the same colour...

For example a white display displaying an ALL white background. A dead pixel maybe red so within the white background you will see a red dot.

All TFT are proun to them. I have two and they do not effect my display. You will only really see them if you go up close and look for them.

Your graphics would fit,but you would have to use the VGA input. There is another input called DVI which helps with the display. Just connect the card up an away you go.

I have 6 TFT's and they all work wonders:

Easy on the eyes, etc.

They are wonderful, never had a dead pixel atall.

A dead pixel or "cell" is just a small black dot that does not conduct and makes a small area of the screen unviewable, smaller than the size of this: .

The monitor will configure itself, no probs just install the disk after booted or let XP do it if you have XP.

CTX - click here can manage to guarantee ZERO DEAD PIXELS!!!

No problems!

Give it ago, space saving.

which had a 17' LG TFT. It was wonderful and no dead pixels at all.

I am awaiting my new machine, this week, it will have the same Monitor and I can't wait.

Actually my 19 inch CRT monitor, being a Trinitron, has two thin dark lines across it. They probably take up more 'space' than even a few 'dead pixels'!
