Computer monitors have come a long way in a short time. Once there were the bulky old style CRT monitors that extended backwards and took up more space than was good for them. Go down to any recycle centre and you are bound to see these relics piled up as people move to the latest technology. That technology comes in the form of TFT monitors, also known as LCD or flat screen monitors.

TFT monitors provide a much sharper image because they allow for faster re-drawing and refresh rates. This happens where each pixel has a tiny transistor which because it is so small, requires only a small charge to control it. As a result it can track moving images much more accurately and makes it perfect for gaming, viewing films and for providing a great all round multimedia experience.

The latest advent of TFT monitors is the widescreen display. While the old standard ratio was 4:3 most widescreen monitors now use a 16:9 ratio. These are becoming more and more popular providing the computer viewer with a “widescreen experience” similar to that which television viewers have enjoyed in recent times. As people have got used to widescreen televisions so the requirement for these monitors has grown. One of the reasons for this is that a lot more people are viewing DVD and Bluray discs on their computers, and are now able to enjoy high definition image quality with most titles increasingly only available in widescreen formats. In addition most games are now also in widescreen format so it makes sense to play these and gain the benefit of an enhanced viewing experience.

Ultra thin design and an LED backlight are examples of the technological progression of modern computer monitors. Along with this progression an increasing number of models will benefit the environment by using very low power consumption while still providing excellent image reproduction. Connectivity is another area where these screens allow a number of ways of connecting to your computer. VGA, DVI and HDMI are often all on the same monitor thereby allowing you to connect graphic cards of differing specifications and ages to the screen.

With prices for larger widescreen tft computer monitors coming in at very reasonable levels there is little excuse not to get one of these. Manufacturers are also putting their efforts into ergonomics by designing their monitors to look good in the home environment. No longer the ugly CRT, now the sleek TFT!
