Wow, that is a big order. Here it goes.

LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. Basically, it deals with Backlight hitting glass that is pulsating items on to the panel.

The problem with this is where you view the LCD because of the backlight. If you have ever looked at or used a laptop, or any LCD panel (watch, gameboy, etc.), you know that as you tilt the face past a 10 Degree angle, it gets harder to read the information. A PDP also has that light-distortion factor, but at a greater angle. Therfore, you will not have to be directly in front of the viewscreen to view it. LCD's are also a lot more expensive once you get past the 14.1" range.

PDP's work like this: Each Pixel of a PDP contains three filters (in lack of a better term). A Red filter, a yellow, and a blue. These filters are filled with Neon and Xenon gasses. Electrical pulses stimulate the filters, and the result is color matching. This all happens in the glass of the Panel.

CRT's (Cathode Ray Tube, or the standard monitor) simply weigh a ton, and take up a lot more space than a LCD or PDP (Plasma Display Panel).

I have read some articles on this, and remember one from Ziff davis on line. If I find it, I will put the link up.

Hopefully, this will satisfy you answer. Good Luck.

OK. After doing some reasearch, Sony and Phillips is making a flat monitor. To cover all angles, This is what I have found.

Phillips makes a flat monitor, which IS plasma driven.

Sony is in production of a flat TV, which will be plasma based, but is not out yet.

Other than that, either a monitor is LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), or CRT (Picture Tube).

I just read a article from NEC that claims that their LCD monitor can be seen up to 160 degrees without color or light distortion. This is a computer monitor, but I am sure that if this works then you will see TV's coming out soon.

Let me know.

If I ever get a job, I intend to buy an LCD monitor.  The things I've heard are that the focus is always perfect, though the resolution is worce than most CRT's, they use much less power than CRT's which probably cuts down on the radiation (my assumption), and they probably don't get hot enough or they don't contain that fire retardant coating that when heated can cause allergic reactions.

What i powers said about the viewing angle is true too.
