Default Question: What are the main differences between a TFT + LCD monitor?

sponsored links
could anyone please point out the main differences or advantages of a TFT or LCD monitor?

Because I'm thinking of upgrading my normal CRT monitor and was thinking of getting the compact monitors which are TFT or LCD, but aint quite sure which one I should get - a TFT or a LCD.

So i'm asking you if you could point out the main differences between the two

any advice will be much appreciated.

Color LCD displays use two basic techniques for producing color: Passive matrix is the less expensive of the two technologies. The other technology, called thin film transistor (TFT) or active-matrix, produces color images that are as sharp as traditional CRT displays, but the technology is expensive.

So TFT is a type of LCD. I would go to a computer shop and look at some screens. One of the first decisions is size as it affects the price significantly.
