Computer Monitors | Displays

Computer monitors, or computer displays, are essential output devices paired with computer processors that translate input data into an image. Originally designed as CRT (cathod ray tube) monitors, modern flat screen computer displays are typically manufactured as either LCD (liquid crystal display) or LED (light-emitting diode) displays with aspect ratios of 16:10 or 16:9. Computer monitors today are increasingly being used as high-end entertainment displays for watching streaming movies and shows with resolutions rivaling similar television sets—though unlike televisions, computer monitors are typically not designed with integrated speaker systems which will have to be supplied externally.

How do you measure a computer monitor?

Measure a computer monitor by measuring diagonally from one corner to the opposite diagonal corner. Be sure to only include the screen area and do not include the screen’s frame or casing in the dimensions. You can easily measure your computer monitor with a measuring tape or ruler.

How do you clean a computer monitor?

When cleaning a computer monitor use a dry soft cloth without any lint, preferably a micro-fiber cloth. Start by cleaning the screen with a dry cloth. If this doesn’t remove all the smudges then clean the computer monitor with a mix of diluted dish soap and warm water. Afterwards take a dry cloth to remove any remaining streaking.

What should you look for in a computer monitor?

When choosing a computer monitor, keep in mind the intended use of the monitor. Consider if it is an LCD or LED screen and the different types of panels available. Also check the screen size, aspect ratio and resolution. Confirm that the computer monitor has the video connectors you need. If available, read any reviews before making a purchase.
