The Pros & Cons of Computer Monitors: LED, LCD, CRT and TouchScreen Monitors

Nowadays, the most popular monitors that can be found across workplaces and homes are LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitors and LED (Light-Emitting Diode) monitors.  A shift away from the old CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors, these newer and better quality monitors provide an improved experience with their lighter and slimmer build, and their significantly higher resolution.  The main difference between LCD and LED monitors is the backlighting technology, which also aids in reducing eye strain, particularly for those who spend longer amounts of time in front of a computer.  LED monitors, the latest phase-in display screens, utilize a comparatively more energy-efficient method, which is the reason why it consumes up to 40% less energy and use no mercury – making LED monitors the more environmentally friendly option.  As a result, LED monitors are usually more expensive than LCD monitors, and as the size of the screen increases, so does the price.


How to Buy The Best Computer Monitor

Hence, it is wise to choose a monitor with the best quality and largest screen size – where most vary from 17" to 40" – that your budget allows. It is also important to consider several features, such as the aspect ratio, native resolution, response time, brightness, connectors (including DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, Thunderbolt, USB, VGA, and etc.), and viewing angle when selecting  your monitor.  These features should depend on whether you are using the monitor for general work, business, entertainment (usually with wide screens and full HD or FHD), pro gaming and professional need (such as graphics design, image editing, industrial specialties & etc.) – as these activities have vastly different demands of a monitor. You can narrow down your purchase by browsing through the wide selection of monitors Mwave carries from ASUS, BenQ, Dell, LG, Philips, Samsung, and various other major brands, as well as from pre-categorized monitor groups or search criteria in 4K (UHD), Business, Curved, Gaming, Touchscreen and Value/General Use.
