LCD monitors have become so affordable these days that even budget computers are capable of boasting them in their system specifications. From current pricing and buying trends, this year we may see a sharp rise in penetration rate of LCD monitors, higher than ever before. Many monitor manufacturers have already switched over to a pure LCD-only monitor lineup as the profit margin from CRTs are getting thinner over time. The manufacturing process of LCD panels is much refined these days compared to two year back when manufacturers often had to deal with large quantities of rejected LCD panels due to manufacturing defects. Even today, this problem is not avoidable, but it is now very much under control.

With reduced costs from better manufacturing process, prices for LCD monitors naturally dropped and consequently, that forced a price drop on CRT monitors too, since both categories need distinct price points for retail. However, many manufacturers soon realized that they were unable to sustain such prices for CRT monitors, hence the reason many monitor manufactures giving up most, if not all their CRT product line-up.

Currently, mainstream 15” LCD monitors can be purchased at about S$500 and 17” models are retailed for less than twice that price. Now, how would you feel if we told you that you could get a 19” LCD monitor for just a little more than the more expensive 17” panels? Sounds too good to be true?
