LCD Monitors



On an lcd monitor, say a 24" does it actually measure 24" from corner to corner or are they about an the same as crt's which are an inch or so less than the specified size.

I mean the actual visible screen not the whole monitor of course.

Yep, your 24" LCD monitor (for example) has a screen size of 24" corner to corner diag.....the usual way to measure them.
You get what you pay for....smokin:

I always supposed the CRT itself (the glass instrument) had the plastic or resin frame covering the outer edge of the glass. I've worked on them, inside, but I've never thought to check that while I had one open. Can anyone tell me, for sure?

That would mean the CRT is actually the size they use for statistics, but the visible area is less than that. :)
