View Full Version : TFT monitors

Can anyone tell me if these monitors can be used in an almost horizontal position,
I am at the stage of building in the computer to the base of my gantry router
and have built in a drawer which when pulled out exposes the monitor, keyboard and mouse. But I'm sure I have read somewhere that flat screens should not be used
horizontally! Many thanks Doug G

I cant see a problem with a tft lying flat. Some tablet style computers have tfts and can be used at any angle. If it was a plasma screen then it definitely cannot be used flat. Lying a plasma down knackers it up. Something to do with disrupting the gas contained in the screen cells.

Many thanks for reply Ian. Bought a plasma t/v 12 months ago, that must have been where I read it.
