The following drawbacks of most flat screens over conventional CRT monitors, however, still apply.
o allows for most LCD monitors are inherently not represent the usual TV picture comparable black level, so instead of black is real (no light), only a dark gray possible.
o show the case of fast movements - especially older - LCD monitors inherently ghosting or motion artifacts.
o Especially older plasma monitors consume much power can shimmer and age faster than others, also tend to be very bright stationary image areas such as station logos to "burn".
o In the case of LCD television sets usually easy to observe in rear-projection televisions a strong dependence of the indentation image (brightness, contrast, color) on the angle of the viewer of the TV.
o flat panel displays have a fixed pixel grid (resolution), so that when displaying images that differ from this pattern, made a conversion (scaling) needs, which usually leads to additional artifacts and loss of image quality.
* Advantages over CRT devices
o The minimal depth of a few centimeters (millimeters in the future), while CRT monitors with screen sizes are usually up to 60 centimeters deep.
o The low weight, which also allows direct mounting on walls and the earlier vision of the future "TV that is like a picture can be hung on the wall" is fulfilled.
o flat-panel devices often have a higher image resolution and displayable are now also able to receive HDTV signals, while in the tube devices have only a few of the available models in the EU apply. Toshiba 42TL515U
To HD-ready to be compliant, at least 720 lines are needed. HDTV is the world's established standard for high definition television, for example in North America and East Asia is already quite common. HDTV-ready CRT television sets were in Germany, JVC, Philips and Samsung. With Sharp and Loewe's already the first manufacturer to produce tube televisions have set. Others, such as Panasonic, have their range of models in the product range considerably smaller tube TVs.
