Display Choices

ACTIVE MATRIX
Also known as thin film transistor or TFT, these are the brightest, but also the most expensive.

PASSIVE MATRIX
Technically known as dual scan twisted nematic or DSTN, these can be hard to see when not viewed head-on. Videos leave "ghosts" on the screen.

ENHANCED PASSIVE MATRIX
Also called High Contrast Addressable, this new type promises many of TFT's advantages at a much lower cost.
