Falcon's Monitor Selection Criterion

Computer monitors come in different sizes and shapes. Some shapes are easier to fit together when building monitor arrays than others. The number of pixels is also important for detail and more charts.

Maxiumum Resolution

Full HD, 1920x1080 resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio allows for several charts at once. Small details and text are clear. Larger resolutions can be supported by our trading computers, but come in larger screen sizes not supported by monitor stands.

Screen Size

The 24-inch or 27-inch monitor size is the best value for the number of pixels available. You can get up to six of these on one monitor stand. Greater screen sizes, while they may may have a higher resolution, do not fit monitor stands.

VESA Mount

Allows for saving space by putting display on a stand. Our monitors use 100x100mm. Our stands are compatible with 75x75mm.

Straight and Narrow Frames

Straight frames are best for fitting monitors together on a stand and prevents. Narrowness reduces the amount of space between screens.

Types of LCD Panels

LCD panels all use active matrix technology (passive matrix is used in small applications like watches). Below is a list of active matrix technology LCD panel types in mass production today.

TN (Twisted Nematic)

The lowest cost and most widely sold LCD panel type. TN panels have fast response times (2ms-5ms typical). Color reproduction and contrast ratios of TN panels are not as good as VA or IPS panels. TN panels only produce 6-bit color. TN panels attempt to produce 8-bit color using a process called dithering. For watching the markets, however, they work fine. The monitors we offer are TN monitors.

VA (Vertical Alignment)

These monitors offer better color reproduction and wider viewing angles than TN panels but have slower response times. Uninformed buyers often mistake the somewhat slower response times of the VA monitors for inferiority to the faster (TN) monitors. Color reproduction is much better, blacks are blacker, and they have higher contrast ratios then TN panels. We do not offer VA panels because of their limited side angle viewing quality. When you have a lot of monitors, you are rarely looking directly at them all at once.

IPS (In Plane Switching)

These are the best of LCD monitors. Prices for these monitors are at least 50% higher and may be over 300% higher for larger sizes. Color accuracy is very impressive and the side viewing angle quality is excellent. The response times are slower than TN monitors (typically more than 6ms). Many are too slow for gaming purposes. IPS panels also consume more power than TN or VA panels. The big advantage of IPS monitors is color quality. For traders, the TN monitors produce more than adequate color quality for your charts. If you use your computer for graphic design work or watching movies then the IPS panel may be a better choice.
