Does anyone else feel they are falling behind with the times. When i first started using computers life seemed so much easier. The bigger the number the better. And what should you be looking for. I just see a load of numbers. So if anyone nows a site that explains everything and says what u are looking for these days. would be very helpfull.

Response time seems a bit slow at 5 milliseconds I hope you meant 5 nano seconds.

Most of it makes complete sense to me except for the centimeteres, afraid I was brought up with feet and inches :0)

Response time seems ok in ms. If you have the inclination to read this then it might explain a few things; click here

"Response time seems a bit slow at 5 milliseconds I hope you meant 5 nano seconds."

A response time of 5ms for an LCD display is perfectly acceptable, you would need to be talking in nanoseconds for plasma displays though.

rdave most of your link went over myhead but i found daconnor more at my level and it explained a lot of things.

Dot Pitch / Pixel Pitch-- How far apart the pixels are.

Max Resolution-- The max resulation the monitor is capable of.

Colour-- The number of colours it can produce. Higher is better.

Response time-- How quickly a pixel can change colour. Lower response time is better. No industry standerd on how to measure it though.

Image Brightness-- Higher the better but recomended brightness is 120 in normal lighting.

Image Contrast-- Higher the better but when stated using dynamic etc allows this in certain situations.

Think I have got to grips with it all. Still not 100% sure of what the minimum number i am looing for is though
