  1. There are important differences to consider between liquid crystal display (LCD) and cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors. Some advantages of LCD monitors include:

    • LCD monitors consume less power. An average 19-inch LCD uses 45 watts of electricity, while a 19-inch CRT uses 100 watts.
    • LCD monitors are smaller, thinner and weigh half as much as CRTs. This allows you to mount an LCD on a wall or an arm.
    • An LCD monitor's tilt, swivel, height and orientation from horizontal to vertical can all be adjusted easily.
    • LCD monitors don't produce the flicker that CRTs do, generating less eye strain.
    • LCDs display text much more clearly than CRTs.
