Flattening the price of flat-panel monit - Flattening the price of flat-panel monit

The first is (and has always been) price, price, price. Because flat-panel displays are cut from a much larger sheet of glass, there is often material waste involved in the process, especially when the panels are larger. While the price of 15-inch flat-panels have come down substantially, they're still priced much higher than CRT displays -- for the price of one relatively affordable 15-inch TFT display, you may well be able to get two or three high-quality 17-inch CRTs. Another thing that may be an issue for gamers is the fact that a TFT monitor has a hardwired maximum resolution, and changing that resolution to something lower can often result in dubious image quality. Don't even think about trying to increase the resolution, because it's just not going to happen. In other words, if you simply must play Quake III at 1600 x 1200, start saving your pennies, because you're going to have to step up to a 20-inch monitor -- which means mucho moolah. This month, we stuck with the more affordable end of the spectrum, the entry-level 15-inch TFT flat-panel. Each of these monitors features an analogue connection to the PC (known as D-Sub), and has a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768. All of the monitors can display at refresh frequencies up to 75 Hz, but on most of them you'll really want to drop that down to 60 Hz anyhow for optimum performance. Weird but true.
