whats monitorEdit

A computer monitor is an output device which displays information in pictorial form. A monitor usually comprises the display device, circuitry, casing, and power supply. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) with LED backlighting having replaced cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting. Older monitors used a cathode ray tube (CRT). Monitors are connected to the computer via VGA, Digital Visual Interface (DVI), HDMI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) or other proprietary connectors and signals. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:42, 15 September 2018 (UTC)


The article says:

"Lagging several years behind, IBM introduced the Color Graphics Adapter in 1981." This was actuallly as soon as they could - the CGA was intended for the IBM PC, which was only launched in 1981 and did not come with any integrated graphics. Skloo (talk) 18:29, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Info on interlacing missingEdit

One important fact about monitors is that they had to be non-interlaced in order to prevent eye strain. They began as text-only and had to be read. A section on that development needs to be included. Thetrellan (talk) 17:40, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
