Computer monitor

monitor or display (sometimes called a visual display unit) is an electronic visual display for computers. The monitor comprises the display device, circuitry, and an enclosure. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD), while older monitors use a cathode ray tube.

Computer Monitors are the display devices used to view the display output of a computer. The Technology of  monitors is rapidly expanding. Now you can even connect multiple monitors to a single computer. This
document briefly talks about CRT and LCD Monitors

CRT Means “Cathode Ray Tube”, CRT monitor has more lines of dots per inch, higher the lines more   amount of the resolution. It creates the picture by number of rows or lines of the small tiny dots.  Consider this Resolution 1024 x 768 resolution will be sharper than 800 x 600 resolution. It describes  the technology inside an analog computer monitor.

LCD Monitors are called as “Liquid Crystal Display”, It is an LCD Technology. Liquid Crystal Display consists of two sheets of polarizing material with a liquid crystal solution between them. When an electric current passed through the liquid crystal solution, crystals align so that light cannot pass through them. It is like a shutter either allows light to pass through or Blocking the light.
