I have vision problems and I am in need of special displays for my computers. Most of todays brand new thin panel, wide-screen type displays seem awfully bright to my tired, weary eyes. Especially if I am trying to stare into a bright white background with black text for long periods of time. Which is very hard to do on the modern display types out there The problem is I can halfway tolerate photographs, videos and graphics on dim and even moderately dim displays but it starts to become a problem when they are too bright and from a back-lit display. The problem with text is even more severe, harsh and sensitive to me. The old monitors from the early 1980's with green or amber characters set against a deep, pitch black display is the easiest on my eyes yet they are not compatible with today's computers.
Thus, I am trying to review all the different types of monitor types and computer display technologies in general over the years from the earliest Cathode Ray Tube type technologies (CRT) right up to todays thin panel, wide-screen monitors. To be honest I am a little confused over the various different types that have appeared, come and gone and what kind are on the store shelves today. I have even considered trying out projector type technologies intended for home video use or office multi media but I'm not sure if they can be hooked up to a computer and if so just exactly how well these would work for a computer monitor display.
Also, I am at a loss when it comes to comparing modern thin panel, wide-screen Televisions to current thin-panel wide-screen computer monitors. They both look and seem the same to me overall and in general. Are there any differences and if so, what are they?
Any help anyone could provide in helping me sort out all the various different types of computer display technologies both vintage and modern and even projector and television technologies both vintage and modern would be greatly appreciated.
