My definitive TV tech guide. - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Good read, I enjoyed it . One question I have about monitors and Tv sets regarding High Definition is whats the difference between a HD tv and a HD LCD monitor? Being that LCD's have better resolutions than tv's do, does that technically make a 24" monitor HD? Maybe you could throw that in there as well, the difference between HD tv sets and monitors that can display high resolutions

Will do. I have slacked off on the updating. i have 5 pages of updates coming.

To answer your main question though, yes a 24" LCD monitor is HD. A HD Monitor can support higher resolutions than a TV can. For instance a 24" monitor can handle 1920 x 1200 resolution (2304000 pixels) vs a 1080p TV's (1920 x 1080) 2,073,600 pixels.

Awesome guide!

Also if you're going to update it, you might want to add WLED and RGBLED into the LED LCD section.

You probably already know this but;

WLED = White LED backlight, but the white LED's have a very low color temperature which makes them look almost blue. This causes a slight blue tint to the image.

RGBLED - Red, Green, and Blue LED backlight. It uses Red, green and blue LED's to create an image with the proper ~6200 kelvin color temperature, rather than just using white LED's. This allows the LED's color to match the color of the pixel, therefore providing an image with much better color accuracy.

And one more thing, the bandwidth of HDMI and DVI cables can be much greater than 4.9GB/s, for example there are HDMI cables from monster which can reach up to 14GB/s or so.

This guide is truly helpful though, I've never seen so much info compiled into one page!
