Default In-Depth LCD Buying Guide - What Monitor Should I Buy?

Before the LCD displays arrived, the choice of a monitor has been fairly easy. With CRTs you had screen size, refresh rates and price and you could be fairly sure that you did not have to worry about anything more. With LCDs, it is a different matter and this guide aims at helping you understand what the marketing gibberish means and what you really need to look for.

Hey Rutar,

Is there another Rutar to critic your opinion?

Excellent start.

I think I discovered one more thing that is 100% true for LCDs:

Just as with cars, it is better to buy a model that has been in production for 6-12 months than one that has just been released. That way the bugs are worked out and the production line knows how to make the product properly. Be aware that the distribution can easily add a 6 months delay!

Rule of the thumb is: Buy only after the product has been out for 12 months in your country.
