The best LCD monitors should be able to provide you the best viewing experience based on your usage. LCD monitors are available under a wide range of prices, depending on the quality of the panel used. These panels use multiple sheets of glass, a liquid crystal material and different voltage levels to create an image on screen. Liquid crystal display also provides improved quality of the displayed image using the thin-film transistor (TFT) technology.

The LCD screen size of the monitor is measured diagonally and you can get screen sizes ranging from 15 to 30 inches. For any screen size of a monitor, check for the screen resolution, which is critical for good viewing experience. The screen resolution is measured in terms of the number of pixels and the greater the pixel count, the clearer the image and the better the quality. In the latest trend to view high definition media content, users could opt for 1920x1080 widescreen resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio on 22 inch to 24 inch screen.

The maximum viewing angle for any monitor is 180 and this theoretically value means that you can view your screen from any angle. If you are watching your monitor from various angles, go for an LCD monitor with greater viewing angle to avoid poor contrast and blurry images. But a greater viewing angle doesn't translate to a greater image quality.

HDMI and DisplayPort are currently the most widely used interfaces which are used to transfer high definition digital content between an LCD monitor and a source.
