  • Are LCD's fragile?

    I found a place to put my LCD but am worried that someone will accidently kick it or something. How fragile are the LCD's? Would you reccoment putting a piece of glass inbetween the LCD and the enclosure? Thanks.

    Blunt trauma is never a good thing for electronics. LCD's are pretty resiliant so long as the force is not centered on one part of the display (ie: a car running into a tree at 20 mph probably wouldn't hurt it, but someone kicking the glass with sneakers might). It depends on the display, I guess. A 12" TFT will be much more fragile than a 40x4 LCD....

    You might try covering it with a piece of clear plexiglass...
