Computer Components – Computer Monitors

When someone thinks of the words “computer components” he often thinks of devices that are inside a computer and not devices like monitors. Monitors are as important as hard disks because monitors allow one to see data projected by a computer and without a monitor one cannot use a computer. This article is going to elaborate on the various types of computer monitors available in the market and information about such computer components will be provided.

The word CRT is a short form for the term Cathode Ray Tube and this term is used mainly for CRT computer monitors. CRTs are bulky devices that take up space but these monitors allow a person to view undistorted images. CRT monitors are perfect for people who have space for these computer components but they are on a budget since these monitors are cheaper than higher-end devices like the LCD monitor.

The word LCD is a short form for liquid crystal display and LCD monitors are considered the best monitors in the market. These compact and sleek monitors require lesser space compared to CRT monitors and they look good in homes and offices. LCD monitors have a clear display and crystal picture quality but when the images on the monitor are viewed from some angles, the images tend to look distorted. LCD monitors are ideal for people who do not mind spending a little more money on a sleeker product or for people who are want computers with a sophisticated look.

Computer components like CRT monitors provide a viewing resolution of 1600 by 1200 pixels or higher but the resolution of LCD monitors is fixed within each device. Some LCD monitors allow users to change the display resolution but this often causes a decrease in the performance of computer components.
