Introductions

LCD displays are by no means a new technology, in fact LCDs have been around since 1968 and we see their application in most modern products. However, when we talk about LCD displays for personal computers, it wasn't until around 2002 before LCD monitors started to pose a serious competition to traditional CRTs. Though LCDs have a myriad of advantages over CRT monitors, most notably size, weight and energy consumption, their performance in terms of response time (a 40ms response time *gasp* was still considered acceptable a few years ago) and color reproduction were severely lacking.

Over the past few years, significant advancement has been made so much so that most manufacturers have phased out their CRT models to concentrate on their LCD product line. Today, almost all LCD monitors are capable of boasting 16ms response times and high contrast ratios and development doesn't seem to be losing any steam. 'Super fast' 12ms response time LCDs are already available in the market and even faster 8ms screens should appear in the not too distant future.

Many manufacturers are now jumping onto the bandwagon and into the fray comes the Shuttle XP17, a 17-inch TFT display. Shuttle is no stranger to style when it comes to their XPC range of SFF PCs and the same can be said for the XP17 monitor.
