Christmas is about a week away, but I'm sure there are quite a few of you who've yet to even begin your shopping duties yet. I can safely (and smugly) say that I am completely done with mine.

If you've been putting off deciding which monitor to buy your chosen certain someone, today's your lucky day. If you've been wracking your brain over the difference between LCD and LED technologies, you're in even more luck.

Today I updated the Monitor Buying Guide to include exhaustive information on LED backlighting and how it relates to LCDs. I've tried my best to clear that whole misunderstanding up. You be the judge as to whether I've succeeded.
