tft is a type of lcd. dual scan is another type of lcd.

crt (cathode ray tube) is a regular monitor

I was shopping for a new computer system today and found one that may do;
it comes with a 15" lcd flat panel monitor. The size is perfect but I am
wondering what the difference is between this ‘lcd’ one and the ‘tft’
monitor I already have.

oh, and would someone tell me if “10/100 M* PCI NIC” (*= forget what it
said) has anything to do with ethernet? Thank you.

do you play games? if so, i wouldnt get a flat pannel. the lcd flat pannel
take less space and power. they are also cooler and ‘easier on the eyes’ i
hear, at the native resolution… unless you really hate the monitor you
have now, youd probably be fine… youd save money for one thing.

the nic is the network interface card… its what will connect you to your
router or network…

The TFT is also a flat panel monitor. I was wondering what the
difference was.

And, are you saying that the NIC is what I would use to hook up my
computers? I know I have ethernet on the one I am working with at present.
As you can see … I don’t understand networking. Thanks for your help.

maybe someone else knows more about the monitors… i think a tft is just
like the cheaper pannel display. i often see them described as tft/lcd or
something similar to that.

the nic is what you use to hook up your computers, or one method of it.
what is it you’re trying to do? or was it just to know kinda thing? im
sure if you search on google youd find a lot of info?

TFT - thin film transistor. All flat panels should now be TFT. The older
technology is dual-scan.

10/100 - autosensing 10/100mbps network interface card (ethernet NIC)

So, may I then assume that this lcd monitor is older than a tft monitor
and is probably being discontinued … ergo the sale?

Wrong.

Dual-scan is dead as of several years ago. The flat panel monitors should
all be TFT.

Thank you. I guess what is patently obvious to everyone else is just now
dawning on me. You are telling me that a TFT is also an LCD. They are both
in one product. hmmm
