Mercury free ( LED backlight ) LCD monitor for home PC and its benefits

Updated on February 15, 2012

Mercury free LCD monitors.

Mercury free LCD monitors are more energy efficient and their display is much more better than oridinary LCD monitors.

A monitor which uses an LED backlight rather than conventional Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps (CCFLs) found in almost every other desktop LCD display. brings in a number of advantages, the most fundamental of which is that the LEDs are able to create a much purer white level, and thus, a much larger colour gamut.

Whereas standard monitors can only produce around 82 per cent of the NTSC standard, the LED backlight(mercury free) monitors can display 114 per cent, the full area of the Adobe RGB natural colour space. More significant is where that increased range is - in the areas of greens and reds, which really should make an impact on how accurately and vividly images are rendered on screen. This is of key importance for a colour critical workflow situation. There's no point spending ages getting the colour for a product right on screen only for it to come out quite differently when it's manufactured or printed.

LEDs have other advantages too. There's virtually no warm up time required so you don't have to wait for your monitor to stabilise to get correct colours. Next, they are more eco- friendly, in that they don't contain mercury. Thirdly, they're more robust as they're much less susceptible to sudden failure or burnout. They can fade over time, but even with regular use you're looking at many years of benefiting from your LED backlit screen.
