Why do LCD screens have one good resolution?

I would like to know why LCD screens have one good resolution? Why do CRT screens seem to handle different resolutions equally?

Do some LCD companies make LCD screens with multiple "good" resolutions? NEC? Sony?

Thank you.

The native resolution of a LCD, LCoS or other flat panel display refers to its single fixed resolution. As an LCD display consists of a fixed raster, it cannot change resolution to match the signal being displayed as a CRT monitor can, meaning that optimal display quality can be reached only when the signal input matches the native resolution. An image where the number of pixels is same as in the image source and where the pixels are perfectly aligned to the pixels in the source is said to be pixel perfect.

read all about it here --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_resolution

Hope this answers your question :)

Stevef22,

an LCD screen can only ever have one native resolution. This is because the native resolution is defined by the physical number of 'pixels' the LCD screen has. And the physical number of pixels cannot be changed.
