How come there isn't any plasma monitors Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Monitors Displays Peripherals Last response: December 23, 2010 1:06 PM in Computer Peripherals Share ern88 December 23, 2010 10:57:20 AM Hey, I was just thinking why there is no Plasma displays for PC. I know probably because of burn in issues. But the refresh rate is 10x better then LCD. Wouldn't it be kewl for PC???

For that reason you don't see any 1080P plasma screens under 42" While LCDs can achieve 1080P as low as 4.5" more dense than the iPhone 4. It is true that plasmas have a bajillion times the static contrast, better color that most LCDs, and doesn't have to deal with response time. It is also true they suffer from screen burn. Basically ensuring your Windows Start menu would be permanently burned in even if you don't look at still text documents for long hours. The gasses also fluctuate in brightness randomly. Not noticable in motion pictures several feet away but noticable up close looking at still images. There are 120hz LCD monitors. They are quite good in terms of refresh rate. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedHow come the nzxt phantom isnt reccomended more often?
