Why does windows say "generic PnP monitor" for some, but not others?

When I am in device manager, the monitor section lists "generic PnP monitor" for the model. Why does Windows detect the name of some monitors, but not others and does it make a difference? I have used other monitors where windows detected the exact name and model number of the monitor I was using.
