What in the LCD is IPS!?

PC monitors have come a long way since the 1980s, when huge, hot and noisy boxes sucked in gallons of air and layers of dust, and seared lime green on black text into the weary eyes of computer operators. However, the once lowly CRT monitor advanced in strides through the 1990s and into the millennium, offering increasing colour depth and resolutionsfrom VGA to XGA and beyond.

Now, though, the CRT’s days are pretty much over, and the flat panel monitor’s day has very much arrived. With updated background on LCD monitors, particularly on the advancing technology of IPS, let the PC Technology guide show you how to tell your TNfrom your TFT. These clear guides and helpful diagrams explain all you need to know about flat panel monitors, so you need never be boggled by a goggle box again.
