    Default Looking at buying an LCD? Here is some help.

    Seems LCD monitors are getting more and more attention, and becoming very popular. If you are in the market for one, or just want to know more about them, this article might provide some good insight to you.

    Excerpt: This guide is offering you a detailed description of various LCD monitor parameters, which are essential for comparative analysis, as well as the measuring techniques used for each of them. Besides, since the majority of LCD monitor parameters are determined by the type of the matrix the monitor is based on, we will also introduce to you the major four types of contemporary matrices. They are: TN+Film, S-IPS, MVA and PVA.


    Contemporary LCD Monitor Parameters and Characteristics

    Edit: I should warn you that this is techie stuff, and not a review of which one is the best monitor versus the other one.

    Default TFT's Suck on VSync

    You need a CRT Monitor to get High refresh rates. TFT's are okay in some respects & I know some of the solutions available such as the higher-end Hitachis' have as low as 4m/s refresh times but this still sux big-time if you want the best from your High End Graphics card.

    Most TFT's will only do 75Hz at best, some will do as bad as 60Hz at say 1280 x 1024 & 1280 x 1024 with EVERYTHING on to the max, is about right for the Radeon X800XT PE card for most games thesedays. Enable VSync to stop the tearing on most TFT's & ure stuck with 60fps.

    Get yoursself a decent CRT Monitor which can manage 100Hz at 1280 x 1024 & the difference you will see is just amazing!

    *Note* Be sure to have your Monitor Drivers installed & not Bill Gates drivers setting it as a Plug & Pray Monitor

    Dont believe me!?!?!?...go run a game and use a 60Hz screen refresh and try to play the game. Laggy as hell...but set your screen refresh to 100 hz and play it again..........Big difference & you will be hard pushed to see any significant difference above 100hz (100fps) OPenGL shows this up rather more than games using the D3d wrapper. Prolly summat to do with our friend B.G & DirectX but there ya go. It'll all be a pile of cr*p till the next Display device comes along to shaft us. I hear they will be growing our displays in the near future with "Nanotube" technology. Get ure Flymos ready lads!

The 3007WFP is said to have a a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (that’s WQXGA, baby!), a 14ms response time, 400cd/m2 brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio, support for HDCP, and a built-in 4-port USB hub and 9-in-1 multimedia card reader
