Definition of High Definition:
High Definition is largely a fluid term, taking the shape of a lot of different containers, with the only real meaning being something with a significantly increased picture quality and clarity based on the resolution of the monitor in question. For this reason, High Definition is, in reality, a synonym for high resolution.
High resolution means more pixels in your screen, which leads to a remarkably more clear picture. There are some standards now that allow a more concrete resolution of what it means to have an "official" HD display monitor, even for your PC.
The following are the standard definitions for HD video, which is able to be displayed on monitors of slightly varying native resolutions, some being standard for computer screens, other for TV screens, but they are to a large degree interchangeable because they all work to display these resolutions of video:
1280x720 - aka 720p
1920x1080 - aka 1080i
1920x1080 Progressive - aka 1080p
The "p" and "i" after the resolution denotes either Progressive or Interlaced scanning, respectively. Progressive has been proven to the the faster, clearer picture, less prone to blurring, and therefore has won the title of the "standardized" best possible resolution for HD broadcasting at 1080p.
For your PC, high definition means taking your computer to the next level when it comes to playing video games, watching movies, and watching HD online video. HD means that the screen will be 'widescreen,' so you'll be watching it as it was originally intended to be seen, uncropped, in the theater.
Since HDTV caught fire, video game studios and online entertainment companies have been focusing more and more on HD programming for a high resolution screen. So really, what it ultimately means is, if you don't have an HD monitor, you're missing out on a big part of the picture.
Best Monitor In Your Budget is BenQ G2222HDL Full HD LED Monitor Without HDMI @ 6.8K. Few months back this monitor was retailing for 9K.
Absolutely right techfreak......i was too surprised when i heard 6.8k..:O
100% mate. Two of my brother's friend purchased from nehru place and lamington road at that price. It has definitely come down.
One purchased from "computer empires" nehru place @ 6.9k and the other from "mahavir electronic" lamington road @ 6.8k.
Its confirmed. They can also give me the scanned invoice if i ask them.
HDMI is used to transfer audio signals along with video signals. It is useful if your monitor has inbuilt speakers..hey check this out BenQ - G2222HDL 21.5" LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 5 ms - Glossy Black - G2222HDL... what say??
by the way does it have a hdmi port? and is it so essential to have hdmi monitor? what are the benifits?
i want to buy led monitor within 7k bucks. but i would like to know the difference between HD and non HD monitor. also the function of HDMI in monitor. and will i be able to grab one with the above mentioned features within my budget?? thnx in adv
HD and HDMI have already been explained well in this thread. As far as LED monitor is concerned, you can get Samsung S19A300N under 7K. It is 18.5" LED monitor with 1366X768 screen resolution, 250cd/m² brightness and 5 ms response time. HDMI port is increasingly getting common in budget models but at present it is improbable to get HDMI port with a monitor less than 7K.
Well mate the thing is some things are always cheaper in some shops. We mostly consider online prices. Sure in few cases are old , not updated for ages, Bloated,etc
How can we quote prices of 2 shops out of the thousands of shops in India?
Why should he get 18.5 when he can 21.5 without hdmi port ? He can buy dvi to hdmi converter later for cheap Rs. 400.
