26" LCD the same screen size as 28" CRT????


Active Member
Hi, have just been assured that a 26" LCD screen gives exactly the same size viewable picture as a 28" CRT by the nice man at Currys - can anyone confirm or deny this piece of illogical logic for me?

Sounds about right, CRT is measured differently to LCD, LCD = Exact viewing area where as CRT does not.

bloody hell that was quick!!

Why don't they better publicise this fact then - would mean that the leap in price would not seem as big for like for like screen size to the likes of me who are weighing up whether to jump to flat screen from CRT or not....this has made my mind up for me - will deffo buy a 26" LCD immediately!!
