A quote I picked up from:

"A CRT has three electron guns whose streams must converge faultlessly in order to create a sharp image. There are no convergence problems with an LCD panel, because each cell is switched on and off individually. This is one reason why text looks so crisp on an LCD monitor. There’s no need to worry about refresh rates and flicker with an LCD panel - the LCD cells are either on or off, so an image displayed at a refresh rate as low as between 40-60Hz should not produce any more flicker than one at a 75Hz refresh rate."

And another at:

"Refresh Rate

Since LCD monitors do not employ phosphors like a CRT, refresh rate is not a concern. Basically, the transistors in the LCD remain open or closed as needed until the image changes. This can be a point of confusion for some consumers since most graphics cards still "ask for" a refresh rate setting. This is due to the analog nature of existing graphic cards (see "Digital Video Interface" section) and their support for CRT displays. While refresh rates do not apply to LCD monitors, most LCDs are set up to accept any settings from 60Hz and above. It is best to set youur video card to 60Hz.

Response time

Response time is a specification important for LCD monitors. Don't confuse it with Refresh Rate. Response time refers to how quickly a liquid crystal can twist, then untwist to either pass or block the light of each pixel. Response time is instrumental in determining whether or not LCDs can clearly show full-motion video without smearing or ghosting. Since there can be a relationship between viewing angle and response time, both should be considered together. This specification is becoming increasingly important as the use of full-motion video grows.

Until recently streaming of full-motion video without error has been a drawback for LCDs, while CRTs have enjoyed virtually no problem. For this reason, many gamers and users of video playback and editing applications continue to prefer CRT monitors. However, with the combination of the raw material speed and the innovative driving schemes, it is now possible for active-matrix LCD panels to achieve a switching speed that virtually eliminating ghosting and image trailing from video application. Many of the newer LCDs have response times of about 16msec which enables video to be replayed as well on a LCD screen as any CRT screen. You should select a LCD with the lowest response time possible."

I Hope this helps!

Have you ever had someone nag you until you ended up turning a deaf ear to them?

Have you ever troubleshot an electronic device suspecting a particular circuit when in fact it was another?

Have you ever thought that a particular hardware driver was the problem when in fact it was a Microshaft Winblows problem? How about two drivers in conflict?

How does one really determine which bit of code is in error, and if they can, shouldn't they be able to then correct it?

Does a signature that includes someones system specs say more about their abilities, the small size of their penis(so says Sigmund), or how much money they're willing to spend on it?

Just some thoughts
