Reasons to buy a flat panel monitor
You'll have more room on your desk.
Arguably the best thing about the flat panel monitors is that they save over a square foot of room on your desk. Old school monitors are big, bulky and outdated. Most people are looking forward and changing over their offices to flat panel monitors. If you are looking for a new alternative for the large, bulky monitor you have in your home, a flat screen is the perfect solution. Many models are able to covert to a televison screen simply by pressing a button! This way you can have a high def experience while sending emails or watching your favorite show!
Another great feature about the flat screens are the USB ports. Say goodbye to the old days of having to move your big bulky computer around to plug in your digital cable. Today’s flat screen monitors have USB ports right on them so it’s easy to plug and play.
Flat panels are quickly becoming more known for their clear picture. The flat panels are brighter which makes graphics and text easier to see. Although the flat panels are generally crisper, some come with the option of digital or analog. Most have capabilities for both, but digital is sharper and has the better image. The digital flat panels usually run a little bit higher in cost, but any digital user will tell you, they’re worth every penny.
Although the flat panels may be a little more pricy up front, they are actually quite practical in the long run. Since the flat panels are smaller are more efficient, to run, they will save you money in energy costs.
They're not cheap (though they save in energy costs).
While they've come down in price, there's still no getting around it: You'll pay a bit more for flat panels (although the gap in prices from CRT monitors has narrowed). That's because they're more difficult to manufacture.
A 15-inch monitor, as measured diagonally, will run you 0 to 0. The lower end would be a sale machine, which may not be what you want. If you go up to 17 inches, you're talking about 0 to 0, and 19 inches, 0 to 0. I consider a 15-inch flat panel marginal. It just doesn't show enough, even when all I am doing is writing a letter. I prefer a 19-incher.
