Screensavers were originally designed to protect CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) computer monitors from phosphor burn-in.
This phenomenon can be lethal for your CRT Monitor, and hence the need for screensavers arised.
What’s the problem with a CRT Monitor?
When phosphor dots on CRT are struck by electron beams, they glow. When a particular image is displayed on the screen for a long time, the same dots are struck by the electrons repeatedly, a million of times.
When that happens, the phosphor burns in and you can see the outline of the image that was displayed so many times, even when the monitor is off.
This is called Ghosting.
Does My Monitor Need A Screensaver?
No, No, No….!!! You don’t need a screensaver. Screensavers haven’t been a necessity for many years now! Well, your flat-screen LCD monitor won’t burn in, so if you still have a screensaver, you’re flying behind the times. When your monitor is not in use, it should be off. That way you save electricity too 😉
