    Top Three Flat Panels for Under $200

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    The computer market moves so fast, and it is hard to stay on the cutting edge of computer technology. One trend which is quickly becoming standard in computing is the use of flat panel monitors as opposed to the CRT monitors which are rapidly becoming prehistoric. This article takes a look at three excellent flat panels that won't bust your budget.


    Eight to ten years ago, flat panel monitors were way too expensive which made them impossible for the average computer owner to use with their home computer.  But like any kind of technology, prices drop over the years due to competition and new technology that is released.  Today, a nice quality flat panel is very affordable for the average consumer.  More and more people are choosing to throw out their old CRT monitors in exchange for a sleek new flat panel.

    A flat panel monitor has many advantages over a CRT monitor.  The main advantage is obvious; it is the size difference.  A flat panel monitor is much less bulky than a traditional CRT monitor, which makes it a better choice in smaller spaces.  Flat panels are also much lighter, in most cases, which makes them easier to move.  Flat panels also usually have larger viewable screens than equivalent CRT monitors.  For example, most 17 inch flat panels are equal in viewable screen size to a typical 19 inch CRT monitor.  These are just a few of the advantages of flat panels over CRT monitors as there are others, and it is clear that flat panels are here to stay while CRTs are something that will only be discussed in history books.

    I would like to take a look at three of the top entry-level flat panel monitors on the market today.  I have chosen these monitors as the top in their class based upon various factors.  The number one factor is price.  All of the monitors that I looked at had to be under $200 at the time of this writing.  After narrowing the field down by price, I looked at about 50 of the top entry-level flat panels and began narrowing the field down even more.  I based my choices on factors such as looks and design, screen resolution, brightness, response time, contrast ratio, and manufacturer warranty.  The three flat panels that I came up with are all very good in these categories, and are all great choices for under $200.  I will give a brief description of each of my choices so that you may decide whether or not that flat panel would be right for you.
