In case of monitors as well, a large amount of choice is available, each of which offer different type of features. The bulky CRT monitors are now a thing of the past and the monitors available today boast of large and flat screens with a high resolution. The price variation over the different models available is not great and most of the monitors remain affordable. With new models being launched each year, out dated one are available quite cheaply. Even if the older ones cost you a fortune, they are not likely to offer as many features as the newer and cheaper ones.
The resolution of the screen depends largely on the dot pitch and the dot pitch should be as low as possible to ensure a high resolution. Some actions such as games require quick response of the monitor and hence some attention should be paid to the same as well. A wide screen is especially suitable to watch movies. The performance of most monitors in daylight is not as good as its performance in the dark. Hence that should be considered as well. Some models do not offer a clear picture unless they are viewed at awkward angles, these should be avoided. This is true mainly for the older models.
Nowadays, a monitor has to be connected to many devices other than the CPU and hence such connectivity proves to be an added advantage. For example, a monitor requires specific connection for it to function along with a music system. The monitors may even have built in speakers. The USB hub may also be placed on the monitor rather than on the CPU. The stand that supports the monitor decides many important things like the height of the monitor etc. and it should be possible to adjust it to suit your comfort. Otherwise you may face problems such as pain in the neck, arms etc. the calibrations of a monitor may be adjusted as well by making use of the tools available on the internet. Add-ons such as TV tuner cards can be utilised to make your monitor function as a TV as well.
So while making a choice, all these features must be kept in mind. The a comparison between the different available models should be sought.Close
