LCD Display Prices are Falling

      No Comments on LCD Display Prices are Falling

I’ve been drooling over LCD displays lately. 17″ LCD Display prices have been falling and they are approaching $200. 19″ LCD prices have fallen where there are several for under $300. This is about a $50 drop in prices in the last couple of months.

This price point is very compelling and there is no real reason to purchase CRT monitors for serious computer users anymore. I run my desktop dual montior with two 19″ monitors (the equivalant of 17″ LCD monitors) and they pour out the heat. I measured 100 degrees coming out of one of them and 110 degrees out of the other. That’s a lot of heat being put into my office during the summer. It’s not too bad for the few weeks we have winter, however. 🙂

I think I might hold off in replacing these monitors with 19″ LCD’s however. After Christmas, there should be another price drop and I can use the extra warmth during winter.

My one beef with LCD monitors is that you can’t really change the resolution and have it look good. The monitors have a native resolution and you better run it at that resolution. Even the 19″ LCDs have a native resolution of 1280 x 1024. It’d be nice to go to 1600 x 1200 like my laptop has. With dual monitors it’s not a necessity however.
