Hi guys,
Didn't find similar posts elsewhere so decided to find out here.
I've recetly bought a 17" Philips LCD. It's great, but I don't like the text when I browse the internet or read anything. It looks little ugly. I run highest 1280x1024 res. My "dot pitch" size is 0.264mm, like most LCD's. I know things are even worse with 19" LCD's.

So I was wondering if companies are planning to lower the size of "pixel pitches" of lcd monitors. On CRT monitors there are 0.2mm. People see difference between 0.2 and 0.29, but LCD's have 0.264. So I think that's the problem why I see (I think many of us) little ugly text while reading.

Does anyone know what the trend's gonna be? Cause now miliseconds are not aproblem for LCD's, soon colors also will be corrected, but one of major probems is that dot pitch. Maybe I'm wrong...

Every pixel on an LCD needs several transistors to address it and turn it on and off. Reducing the pixel size by say 30% increases the the number of connections, transistors and associated compenents by a massive factor!

So will they increase the number of pixels, almost certainly! Someone will steal the lead and the rest will follow.

The real question is whether LCD will be the best technology in a couple of years:

Canon have SED which is a thin (less than 2") CRT with fantastic picture quality.

Philips are playing with organic materials (from deep sea fish) which glow when current is passed through them.

That's great. Think, in the end, we customers, will get the best quality and benefit anyway.
