We rounded up the best LCD monitors available in retail channels this year - and let us just say we were not disappointed. But what ultimately determines whether a display stands out or not depends on whether you are an office user, gamer or graphic designer.
LCD makers supposedly have been working hard to develop big-performance, wide-screen monitors in 16:9 format. But so far, the results have been dismal. Will new wares from some of the world's largest electronics OEMs finally take things to a new level?
Finally, there are some 32" LCD TVs worth testing. We found six from the usual suspects, but in addition to wares from Sony, LG, Philips and Sharp, there were a couple of newcomers that decided to brave this cutthroat market. The end results are some great sets, but prices remain unsurprisingly steep.
We've taken great pains to put the displays we review through the most stringent and detailed tests we can find, and according to your feedback, we're at least doing some things right. And we're not standing still either; we've recently made some improvements in the way we determine what is worth your money and what is not.
You may considering buying into LCD TV technology - but where do you start? We put the screws to eight 26" and 27" LCD TV sets to show what works, what doesn't and - more importantly - what you might want to buy.
We recently scrutinized the kind of picture you get with 26" LCD TVs, but we now go larger with a look at 30" and 32" wares. Does size matter when it comes to picture quality?
