>> So, the discomfort from the monitor is due to the bad quality of the image rather than to any radiation.

Mr. Artamonov, I am sorry, but I just do not buy your argument. Try this experiment: Do whatever daily activities you normally do, reading a book, using a pc, watching TV, eating, a couple of inches away from a regular monitor/TV. Making sure your head is close most of the time. Heck you could even try placing the monitor on the floor and taking a nap on the screen. If you are able to do this without any ill effects, then you must be a special person. I don't have the scientific explanation for it, but I don't think you can easily dismiss all effects for CRT's to image quality.

Excellent article, but it left me with questions.

I am in the market for a 23" or larger Widescreen monitor. While I do some work with text, I am mainly interested in photo editing. Thus it would appear that I should get an S-IPS monitor. Do any of the 23" or larger widescreen monitors use S-IPS?

The manufacturer's specs don't tell what the matrix technology is. They often mention TFT.

Does TFT indicate TN?

No. There are also 23" MVA matrices from AU Optronics and 24" PVA matrices from Samsung.

>> Does TFT indicate TN?

No. TFT -- Thin Film Transistors -- is a technology used on almost all modern LCD matrices. "TFT matrix" is a synonym of "active matrix".
