Flat Panel Displays Reviewed

Hardware CADALYST has reviewed 9 flat panel monitors for price and quality. Flat panel monitors offer a number of advantages over the old CRT (cathode ray tube) designs. Image quality is superior on flat panels because the image is produced digitally therefore there are no convergence issues or interference problems from nearby electrical equipment. A second area where flat panels shine is in desktop space savings. Large flat panels are only a couple of inches thick allowing them to be used in confined areas. Also, flat panel monitors are roughly 1/3rd the weight of CRT monitors and only draw about 15% of the power used by CRTs.

So, now that you are ready to upgrade to a flat panel, which is the best for the money? The CADALYST review ran the test monitors through a standard test suite from DisplayMate Technology. The CADALYST review then went on to include a number of qualitative tests such as stand quality and resistance to fingerprints.

In the end, all of the flat panels tested got high marks, but the Dell UltraSharp was chosen as the top monitor.
