Yo all im a n00b to this forum and monitor technolagy etc and im really confused.
I've heared that no flat monitors are truly flat accept the LG 100% flat monitors
like this one i heared on other forums and a review that most monitors are only flat externaly on there outer glass but internaly there curved.
is this true thats what i want to know basicly, if it is what monitors are truly flat
would a compaq monitor be truly flat.


my friend has a flat compaq monitorand it looks completely flat and im sure it is. you can even test it with a ruler and it comes out flat its picture and outer glass so if any1 can enlighten me about any of this that would help alot.

I use a LaCie 22 blue IV (CRT) at home, and it is marvelously flat. The aperture grill is a a big part of what makes straight lines on the screen actually straight - and the LaCie boasts a perfectly flat aperture grill.

I know that with the Sony Wega technology, they use dynamic beam focusing so that the image is re-focused on the fly to keep the screen's edges sharp. This is probably true of any flat CRT monitor - so this makes me think that the glass is virtially flat, and the electron beam is modified. Any other theories out there?
