Flat panel monitors have successfully replaced the erstwhile monitors using cathode ray tube technology (CRT) everywhere. Opting for flat panel monitors would be beneficial for several reasons. They are more reliable, clear, compact, lightweight, portable, cheap and easier on the eyes than CRTs. Even though flat panels tended to have lower viewing angles and response times than CRT's, flat panels were preferred because, they held advantages like space and power saving, and clear digital picture quality factors. The latest monitors possess even faster response times and increased viewing angles, vital for gaming and video editing. The latest 3D technology could only be implemented on flat panel displays, hence you could also look for 3D flat panel monitors.
