    So i've been looking at a few lcd tv's and upon looking at them in the store, the pixel's seem to be a little different than those of a lcd monitor. On the computer monitors, the pixel only lights up one color, and creates an image using these colors. When i looked at the tv's in the store, all HD sets, it seems the pixels are split into the red, green & blue colors like the old tube tv's. What is up with this, do the lcd tv's not have true pixels that show only one color, for i find the computer monitors to be much crisper than the hd lcd tv's i've seen??

    Thanks

    Nope, according to wikipedia
    "In color LCDs each individual pixel is divided into three cells, or subpixels, which are colored red, green, and blue, respectively, by additional filters (pigment filters, dye filters and metal oxide filters)."

    You probably just don't see them in a computer monitor because each pixel is smaller.
