Pro Tip: google everything you are about to say just before you say it from now on.

Thanks for the above.

To quote from something (found using another search engine other than google), I quote the following:

QUOTE

LCD
Further information: LCD and LCD TV

Pros:

Very compact and light
Low power consumption, generally speaking. On average, 50-70% less energy is consumed than CRT monitors. [2]
No geometric distortion.
Little or no flicker depending on backlight technology.
Not affected by screen burn-in (though an analogous but less severe phenomenon known as image persistence is possible).
Can be made in almost any size or shape.
No theoretical resolution limit

Note the 5th line of the "Pros" list, to wit:

"Not affected by screen burn-in (though an analogous but less severe phenomenon known as image persistence is possible)."

And for your edification this comes from here:
