lcd and magnets - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Because I am one who loves to put rumors and speculation to rest, LCD are not affected by standard "at-home" magnets. As long as you are not creating science experiments consisting of enormous electromagnetic generators or tesla coils, you'll be ok putting those speakers near your screen. If you are planning on doing some of those experiments I listed above...well, you should be worried about all your other electronic equipment instead of just your LCD screen. Heh.

I love proof, so here is a taste. Oh yes, there are many more sources stating the same.

Answer : No. One of the great advantages of using LCD monitors is that unlike CRTs they do not suffer from any magnetic field interference. This means installation can be simpler and faster, without compromising picture quality, as well as saving money on maintaining product performance.

With LCD monitors, picture geometry and convergence are also stable, compared with the need for periodic corrections to a CRT monitor.

That is funny, because I also remembered something about that it was the upside of LCD's.

Magnets does not cause static.

The scotch tape doesn't either AFAIK, because the only thing that happens is that the pixels get pulled and will cause friction and usually light.

The same will happen if you press with your finger on your screen, it will look wierd at first but disappear quickly again.
