The benefits of LCD are many when compared to CRT. It saves power, space, and no stress to the eyes. CRT releases some kind of radiations which affect your skin as well yours eyes in this ways LCD is far more better when compared to CRT.

The Refresh rates are also much higher on an LCD compared to a CRT, the contrast is also a big WIN.

The benefit of LCD, apart from its looks and space saving,is the consumption of electricity. A 16inch CRT consumes nearly 480 watts whereas a 18inch LCD consumes only 22 watts. So you save a lot on electricity bills.

Apart from space saving and sleek look LCD monitors have some advantages over CRT monitors like: 1. LCD monitors consume less electricity as compared to CRT monitors. 2. LCD monitors are good on eyes. They cause less strain in eyes as compared to CRT monitors. 3. Another benefit is that , If LCD monitor's wire is damaged then we can just change the wire and not the whole monitor but if CRT monitor's wire is damaged then we have to change the monitor itself. Yes LCD monitors are more costly than CRT monitors but they certainly have some advantages over CRT monitors and the LCD monitor's prices have also started to come down now.

The best answer will Viewing experience. There will be a difference of cat & elephant between LCD monitor & CRT in terms of picture clarity. Why do we prefer to see a movie in a multiplex or big theater while we can watch it on TV. Its for viewing experience. So the major reason people go for LCD monitor is because of its picture clarity along with its beautiful look & space consumption. Happy Lotting

Hello my friend about LCD monitor beside of space saving, for me LCD monitor also easy to carry when because it is not so heavy compare to CRT. It also give us some cool style and nice looking when we are in front of computer. It also create less hot air compare to CRT the behind monitor will become so hot after few hours. Now days many people use LCD monitor because the price is almost the same with CRT.

The Crt monitors Take more space as compared to LCDs and the resoliution of the LCDs are much higher as compared to the CRTs ... The Crt monitors used to work on a cathode tube ... because of which the pixel levels were not that good

I think that CRTs use a lot more resources and toxic chemicals that make them so hard to recycle. Think of all that leaded glass in the picture tube and huge power supply. That's why they are so heavy and bulky. LCD monitors may not be great when it comes to recycling but CRTs are much worse.

Well CRT's certainly supports more colours and sharper pictures than an LCD but we don't see much difference in that with our human eye. LCDs are easy to carry around or transport, they take up less space and even stunningly stylish as compared to a CRT which sits on the table like a big old fat cat staring at you. The most important advantage of LCDs are that they comsume very less electric power compare to a CRT.

besides its look and finish lcd monitors have a very low power consumption as compared to other crt monitors. A 17 inch crt monitor consumes around 400 watt of power wheras a 19 inch tft monitor consumes around 22 watt only . Well that is a considerable difference for users who spend a lot of time on their computers.

Besides space saving, the LCD monitors have a sleek and cool look. The main benefit of using LCD monitors is that it saves a lot of power consumption as compared to CRT monitors. They also do not heat as quickly as the CRT monitors. It also provides a flat look which is highly beneficial for single viewer. The clarity of LCD monitors is also a plus point over CRT monitors.

LCD monitor is lighter, much smaller and less glaring... it is easily transportable too, but LCD is as much sensitive as well, you don't want to poke it with sharp objects as it will coz it to puncture and something really nasty can ooze out from it and you certainly don't want to touch that, i have heard you should not touch that liquid thing ever, i don't what happens though... have a nice day seekers!

I think LCD saves you a lot of space on the desk instead of putting up a CRT monitor. Plus you can save a lot of power on your electricity with an LCD monitor. They do look cool too and don't produce a lot of heat like a CRT monitor.
