CRT or LCD?

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Hi Guys,
When considering buying a new system, those LCD monitors look real nice.
Now on my Inspiron 7000 (laptop) with a 15" screen I run at a resolution of
1024 X 768, on our HP desktop (wife's) we have a 20" CRT monitor (19"
viewing area),also weights a ton,, we run that at only 800 X 600. If we
crank the resolution up any higher, the text is just to difficult to read
(we're old :-) 42 / 57. Also we,re not much into gaming, the wife plays some
of those Tetris type games or some of that play gambling. Not exactly
intensive video work. So in your humble opinion, would an LCD monitor be
advisable? I wasn't sure if I remember someone saying that the text and
images aren't as clear on an LCD when run at low resolution as they are on a
CRT monitor. Your thoughts please.
Thanks,
Paul

    Go for an LCD; at least 17" if you can afford it.

    The unknown someone was correct, however. A CRT will work at several
    resolutions, so you can play around to find the one that best suits you. LCD
    monitors are built to a specific resolution, and if you run the monitor at a
    different resolution, one of two things will happen (depending upon your
    graphics card); either the display will appear in the centre of the screen,
    with a big black margin around it, or the display will enlarge, and become
    blurred.

    The solution is to decide what resolution the LCD needs to run at, and buy
    an LCD that works at that resolution as standard. With standalone LCD
    monitors it's an easy choice, because there aren't actually that many
    resolutions available (laptops, for some reason, get all the best resolution
    choices); if you buy a 15" LCD (equivalent to a 17" CRT) look for 1024 x
    768. A 17" LCD should be 1280 x 1024, and above 17" should be 1600 x 1200.
    These are based on standard 4:3 monitors- widescreen will be slightly
    different.

    HTH,

    Pete.

    Pete,
    Thanks for the advice. It appears that I'll have to find the type of LCD
    monitor I want and see if its native resolution suits my needs.

    Always...always test any monitor, especially an LCD or
    flat-panel monitor, at the location where it is going to
    be used and not just in the store.

    Good advice. The manufacturers have very wide limits on what they consider
    acceptable in terms of 'dead' pixels - 5 seems to be normal. My external TFT
    has one dead pixel, and some days I really notice it. I've been lucky with
    Dell TFTs so far, but I still recommend seeing the monitor before purchase.

    Regards,

    Pete.

    Ghostrider and Pete,
    Thanks for the advice. I think if I wanted to test the monitor in my
    home I'd have to buy it. But I see where I need to see one in at least in
    the store before I get one. I still seem to have all of my pixels on my Dell
    7000 which is 5 years old now. I think, like as in dogs, that translates to
    about 35 human years. :-)

    Buy the LCD.

    I'm 55, my wife is 58, my parents are both 84. We all have LCD displays
    17", 19", and 20". All run at the native (maximum) resolutions,
    1280x1024 on the 17 and 19" and 1600x1200 on the 20". My mother has
    cataracts and needs very large text. All of our needs and tastes can be
    accomodated with the native resolution by going to Display Properties,
    Settings tab, Advanced button, then changing the DPI setting.

    The LCDs provide much clearer text. None of us play action games.

    If possible, go to the store and check them out first, but a 17"

    Yes, LCD's have a "native" resolution mode. For a 17", it is
    (always?) 1280x1024. When you run them at a different res, they
    interpolate and scale and clearly doesn't look as good. My dad's
    SO runs a 17" at 800x600 (I believe) and I find it unpleasant, but
    she seems happy with it. So best bet is to check it out in a shop
    and have them change the resolution for you.

    Some 17" run at 1024x768.

    An even divisor works well, so if you need low-res, get a 20" panel that
    does 1600x1200 and run it at 800x600.

    I have been running 19" CRT's at home for years now. When I was using 17"
    CRT's , I ran them at 1024x768. When I went to the 19", I went to using
    1280x1024.

    (BTW, I'm 52)

    For a while now, I had been contemplating buying a LCD monitor myself.
    I figured that if I had a 19" screen now, and I was going to spend a good
    amount of money, I should get something larger than what I already had.

    Well, as it's been pointed out, LCD's have a 'Native' resolution that they
    look best when used at.

    I found that most 17" and 19" LCD's are best run at 1280x1024. But as soon
    as you go past 19" to 20" or larger, They run best at 1600x1200.

    Well, for me, 1280x1024 is great, but 1600x1200 makes the text waaaay to
    small when using the default DPI settings. Yes I know you can adjust the DPI
    settings, but because of some of the potential side effects with dialog
    boxes, etc, I didn't want to change the DPI.

    Soooo, in my case, I stayed with a 19" at 1280x1024, and its great. In
    addition, a CRT's viewable size will be about 1" less than the advertised
    size, but a LCD viewable size is the same as the advertised size. So, even
    tho I stayed with 19", by LCD screen is actually bigger that the 19" CRT it
    replaced.

    Also, LCD monitors don't use as much electricity as a CRT, and most
    important, thaey take up much less desk space.


    But.......

    Keep in mind that the monitor you buy, no matter what type, is something you
    will be looking at for years. Most monitors will outlive 2-4 generations of
    PC's. In other words, you will probably go through 2 to 4 PC's before it's
    time to buy a new monitor.

    A bad monitor can cause severe eyestrain. Do NOT cut corners budget-wise
    when it come to your monitor.

    Now, along with that, as it's been pointed out, it's best if you can find a
    local store that you can visit to actually seen the monitors on display.
    It's just like picking out a TV. Find one that looks good to YOU, then look
    at the specs and the price.

    A problem that you might run into tho, is the resolution the monitors are
    running at, at the store. Most stores will use a video splitter to feed the
    same video to multiple monitors to help with comparisions.
    That's good.
    However, that means that all the monitors are running at the same
    resolution, typically 1024x768 because it's a common resolution that most
    monitors can run at.
    That could be bad, because it means that the LCD monitors that are made to
    run at 1280x1024 or better, aren't being displayed at their native
    resolution.

    Bottom line, as stated by others, go to a store somewhere and look at the
    monitors running at a resoultion that looks good to you, and find one that
    is easy on YOUR eyes, then pick one.

    One problem I've noticed with using the DPI setting for larger text is that
    some programs and web sites don't handle the larger text properly.

    Sometimes when text is displayed in a fixed-sized box of some sort, the DPI
    setting will enlarge the text without enlarging the frame around the text.
    Depending on the circumstances, this may put some of the text completely
    outside the window, making it invisible; or it may cause parts of the text
    to overlap other parts, turning it into an unreadable mess.

    When I finally realized what was causing the problems, I set the DPI back to
    its default setting and moved my monitor a little closer...

    That's true. Luckily most software is well behaved. For web sites that
    use images to force sizes on you, there is always the Opera browser.

    Tim,
    Thanks for taking the time to write this lengthily reply. Just when I
    thought all could be saved with DPI. I've solved half of my problem by
    buying a clone computer on eBay. It's a Pentium 4 at 3.2G, 512M DRAM with a
    160G HD. Doesn't have PCI Express but for $750 delivered it's not a bad
    deal. Doesn't have a monitor at that price so it'll replace the 700MHz P3,
    HP desktop which is still running a 20" CRT that came with a 486 Gateway.
    Monitor is still going strong. Since we're not gamers this should work out.
    Plus my wife isn't willing to downsize her monitor. :-) I'm still in the
    market for a replacement for my Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop. So it's
    replacement will have to have a monitor. I've got a bid in for a Dimension
    8400 w/19" LCD monitor. Sweet system but I'll have to wait and see how it
    goes.

    Lemme know how it works for you, Tom (you and WSZsr, for that matter).

    Shoot me a line if you see any quirks. I've noticed the occasionally oddity
    during reboots with SATA drives as well as the DDR 2.

    It's going to take a bit of time for me to be an LGA 775 fan, though I must
    say the Dim4700's I've seen have been rather well-behaved.


    Thanks,

    Stew
