First.. What are displays based on? Your brain will reassemble a collection of small colored dots (pixels) into a meaningful image. Your brain will reassemble a sequence of still pictures (frames) shown in rapid succession into a single, moving scene.
CRT Cathod Ray Tube. Phosphors.
LCD Liquid Crystal Display. What are Liquid Crystals? Solid Liquid Liquid Crystals
LCD Light Polarization. Liquid Crystals can be oriented using magnetic/electric fields to control light passage.
Active Matrix (TFT)
Plasma Display What’s Plasma?
Plasma Display What’s Plasma? Neon and Xenon.
So… Which Is The best?
May be CRT? Pros: The Cheapest. Best colors. More responsive. Multiple resolutions. More rugged. Cons: High power consumption. High eye strain. Too big and heavy. Uneven light output. Poor focusing across entire screen. Picture distorted by magnetic field Burn Ins(screen saver)!!!!
Or, LCD? Pros: Very power Efficient. Very thin and weigh less. Less eye strain. More adjustable. Environmentally friendly. Lives longer. High Resolutions. Cons: Narrow viewing angle. Pixelates on low-resolutions. Can’t produce true black (poor color saturation). Picture affected by magnetic and electric fields. Less responsive (Ghosts and Blurs). Fragile.
Then, is it A Plasma? Pros: No geometric distortion. Even light output. Less eye strain. Perfect focus. No susceptibility to magnetic fields. Largest viewing angle. Small response time. Cons: Very expensive. Low Brightness (not for bright places). Lower resolutions. Pixelates on low-resolutions. Even More Burn Ins!!!!!!!!! Fragile. Dies sooner.
