The term "widescreen" typically refers to an aspect ratio (width to height ratio) of 16:9 and although there are exceptions, most contemporary monitors are fashioned with this ratio.

Additionally, LCD monitors get their epithet from the fact that they use Liquid Crystal Display panels as their display screens. So when you hear the term "LCD monitor" it just means it's the traditional LCD model that uses Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFL) behind the display screen to light it up. These monitors must not be confused with the contemporary LED(LED LCD) monitors which use Light Emitting Diodes to light up the LCD screens; and tend to be more expensive than LCD monitors.

Our list of the best widescreen LCD monitors is limited to the top rated monitors which use CCFL backlighting and have a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.
