Monitors from 1" to 14"

These monitor screens have a 1-14 " (inch) screen. The term LCD is short for Liquid Cystal Display, which is a flat panel display unit which uses the modulating properties of liquid cystals. Liquid Crystals do not emit light directly. They are used in segments to fill the diplay panel and then positioned in front of a light source. (backlight)
They are used in a wide range of applications due to the reduction in the size of the display panels in comparison to the older Cathode Ray Tube''''''''s (CRT). They are also have the advantage of over Plasma panels, because they do not contain phosphers or suffer from screen burn.
LCD''''''''s are more energy efficient and offer safer disposal than CRT''''''''s. It allows LCD''''''''s to be powered by a 12v DC supply instead of the CRT''''''''s 230v AC feed.
TFT (Thin Film Transistor) is a variant on the standard LCD, which uses TFT technology to improve image quality of the LCD screen.
