Hi,

1. Do all monitor screen types (eg QLED, OLED, LCD & Plasma) have glass layers ?

2. Can QLED and OLED screens also be broken if you push too hard on them ? (just like LCD and LED, you can see a crack/star ?)

Sorry for the stupid questions :(


Greetings

Not stupid questions - if you are interested in a subject sometimes the only way to get started is with questions.

Start here:

https://bgr.com/guides/display-types-explained/

1) Layers = yes. Not sure about "glass".

FYI:

Are you interested in monitor construction?

https://www.viewsonic.com/library/photography/what-is-an-ips-monitor-panel/

2) Yes: And sometimes you do not need to even push hard... :(

Read the links and look for similar links. Try to be more specific if there are remaining questions.

So, Qled and Oled are more thinner and weaker then led or lcd?

Without seeing specific thickness and strength specs I cannot say either way.

Or maybe some objective tests to determine just how much of a "hit" or "push" the screen could survive and remain undamaged and viewable.

Depending on materials and details (and even design) something thinner could be stronger. Or maybe not....

Unfortunately, sometimes more effort goes into making something look, for example, stronger than efforts made to make it really stronger.

Take a look at the warranty documents. See how specific the documents are with respect to "hits", "pushes", "impacts",etc..

Likely to be very vague....

And there are always trade-offs. Might actually be stronger but then cost more or be heavier.

Are you just curious about the topic or are you in an environment where screens are likely to be damaged and require more protection?

If so, provide more information if possible. There may be other comments, ideas, and suggestions posted.

I have Samsung S22D300 but I have search the documents of my monitor but I cannot find it :( (I bought it round 2017)

Also why there is no extra protection layer in front to protect the layers in the device?

Does not surprise me that finding the documents and specs for a 5 year old monitor is problematic.

Manufacturers would rather you buy new monitors than know about and otherwise perhaps chose older models for repair and/or use.

As for not having an extra layer of protection the answer (in my mind) is that extra layer would cost more and also mean the monitor "could" last longer. I.e, in a house with kids where the monitor could be hit with flying things, knocked over, and so forth.

Making replacements cheaper than repairs (if at all possible) keeps people buying new.

More profitable for the manufacturers. [Cynicism conceded.]
