Flat panels vs. CRTs for events?

Anonymous's picture

Flat panels use about 50W each compared to 150W for a CRT, plus they're lighter to ship, faster to set up, and shallower on the table so you can pack back-to-back tables closer. If you're using paid staff to set up the Internet room you almost certainly will get flat panels; if you're using volunteers you just have to add up the extra shipping charges and circuits ($100/circuit for a convention center event) to see if they're worthwhile.
