Difference between TFT and LCD Monitors:

This is a question which I have been asked about several times by people who are thinking on upgrading their TV or computer monitors, so I figured out I should answer this online for anyone who has doubts.

TFT, which stands for Thin Film Transistor, is not really different from LCD. TFT, comes from the family of the LCD technology. It is a variant of LCD, it is a modern version of the LCD technology. TFT, has a very well improved image quality and makes use of active matrix addressing.

These days, TFT has been used not only for TVs and computer monitors, but also for mobile phone devices, navigation systems, projectors and other personal devices such as mp3 players.

TFT STAND FOR THIN FILM TRANSISTOR,
LCD STANDS FOR LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY
DISPLAY ARE OF TWO TYPES- MATTY AND GROSSY
MATTY IS CALLED AS LCD
GROSSY LOOK IS CALLED AS TFT
IT IS IMPROVED TECHNO OF DISPLAY

LCD:
Stands for Liquid Crystal Display.
Picture quality till 45 degrees angle.
LCD replaced CRT (Cathode Ray Tube).
Consumes less power compared to CRT.


TFT:
Stands for Thin Film Transistor.
Picture quality till 80-160 degree angle.
Improved technology from LCD.
Consumes less power compared to CRT.

Note: TFT monitor/TV etc., means, it doesn't mean that its not an LCD. For sure its an LCD (then only TFT comes in to picture) and also a Thin Film Trasistor panel is placed on bottom(below) of LCD layer. An LCD may not be TFT.

For clear picture, just have a click on below link and peek.

LCD- liquid crystal display
TFT- thin film transistor

both are a type of viewing device used mostly in TVs and computer monitors. Now also used in mobile and navigation systems..

TFT is an enhancement of LCD.

BeNe7, I think you are referring to the two main different types of LCD, Active and Passive matrix LCD's. Only Active matrix LCD's fall into the TFT group. I made an attempt at explaining the differences a few posts back.

Although I would be inclined not use the latter of the two. This is because Passive matrix LCD's utilise a more basic method of address, whereby each pixel is referenced by means of a grid. Active matrix LCD's have a transistor controlling each individual pixel, hence the name Thin Film Transistor (TFT). These are a lot faster and generally much better for PC monitors (And projectors cool.gif )

Nowadays its actually quite difficult to find passive matrix LCD's, but we dont want them anyway! On the other hand, if you really wanted to - and dont mind deminishing picture quality - and you can put up with utterly retarded response times (150ms +), I suppose you could use passive.

Dear Friends,
According to my point of view there is a few difference between Lcd and TFT Monitor
1. Viewing Angle
2. Less Power consumption
3. high Luminance in TFT
4. Flickering Free
5. Color Quality is better in tft than LCD Monitor but for Color Quality CRT Monitor is the best.

is there is any other difference please mention it.

A TFT is a form of LCD.

What I think you mean is Active and Passive matrix LCD panels. This is where there is a difference in price. A typical active TFT panel capable of resolutions of just 1024x768 is made up of nearly 2.5 million transistors (commonly known as small 3 legged lumps of silicon found in TV's and most other electronics) eccept in this case, the transistors are etched onto glass, to microscopic precision ( ) hence the name "Thin Film Transistor". A normal LCD basicaly has two layers of glass, one with rows, one with columns, this makes up a grid that can be referenced to control each pixel. The control is done with an IC (integrated circuit or silicon chip) on the LCD's circuit board/s. TFT's tend to be quicker ( response time) and nicer to look at in general.

This is a very basic explanation of the differences, but if you search using google Im very sure you will find out a lot more.

In Lcd optical signal generate from liquid crystal electronic board.on board lacks numbers of led use they generate RGB colour and liquid use there resistive coating on viewable part to make stable graphics and show quality of display (in matrix bit data form). Same in tft technology transister use to generate RGB.(If u want to buy monitor then i suggest that, 1 is crt,2 is tft)ALL ENERGY STAR RATED BRAND CRT(LG17''half flat,samsung15"flat) IS BEST FOR HIGH GRAPHICS.when you turn on computer at the monitor startup time the energy star yellow colour logo(at top right side) show the good quality of monitor.
