They also look really stylish and the on screen visual display is much better on the newer monitors. Buy a widescreen monitor today and I'm sure you will not be disappointed!

The difference between a computer monitor and a television

A key difference between a computer monitor and a television is that the latter has its image-processing technology included, whereas a PC screen is reliant on the computer to which it is connected. This is why all these screens were attached to a reference computer, using an eight-way splitter, for simultaneous comparisons.
Current LCD monitors generally have a better resolution than most HD-ready TVs of 1690x1050 pixels. This is so you may read, say, the text within an icon clearly — a common flaw on inferior screens. However, PC screens often lack the ability to handle dark scenes clearly and rarely have the same glossy finish as a TV, as this creates unwanted reflections from the overhead lighting in offices.

Choosing your widescreen monitor

It is not possible to gauge a screen’s calibre from specifications alone. Even apparently obvious technical factors such as the response rate, a measure of how quickly a screen’s pixels can change colour, do not necessarily imply better performance. So how can you tell if a prospective widescreen computer monitor is the right choice? Well, any current monitor should have a digital video input, be this DVI or in rare cases HDMI. All screens should also have a contrast ratio of 800:1 or better, to give colours punch and help ensure blacks are black and whites are white. Beyond that, the specs reveal little.

Widescreen computer displays

Comparing with these old bulky computer monitors which monopolizing the precious desk space, slimline flat-panel screens are more power-efficient and reduce eye strain. And few hanker for an old-school square-o-vision monitor now that widescreen computer monitors are eminently affordable. Widescreen computer monitors enable you to have two documents open on your desktop side by side, making it simple to chop and change. Alternatively, you can leave an e-mail program open in one half of the screen as you attend to a separate task on the other.

A little difference between LCD monitors other than size is a common perception. But that is not true. Many people out there suffer from blurred images on fast-moving video — a defect known as ghosting — or poor viewing angles, in which case your photo slideshow will disappear if you stand up or move to one side. True, there are good deals to be had when you buy a new PC bundle, but ensure a decent widescreen is included. If not, buy one separately.
