I still use an old 17' acting up (no red color) shoddy monitor.
I have a Dell flatscreen.. Say what ever you want about Dell- flat screen is the best invention after the wheel.
I have the same.
Huh, me too; I have a Dell 19 inch Ultrasharp 1905FP Flat Panel.
Mac Cinema screen.
I have a 17" Dell E172FP LCD monitor at work and use my Dell Inspiron 5100 notebook with its built in 15" monitor at home or on the road.
Just recently picked up a 19" Samsung Syncmaster 997df, I can't bear the thought of having an LCD as my primary monitor. They just aren't good enough yet to justify getting one. Especially not for photo and video stuff...
I may be buying a Dell 26" lcd flat screen for my home theater PC later on this year, since the price is going to be extremely right. It annoys me that CRT monitors are getting harder and harder to find in the local stores. Retailers are pushing flat-screen LCD like it is cooler than sliced bread - granted - the small footprint is attractive, but a CRT will give you truer color, better text definition, higher resolution with no 'native' setting, higher contrast, and less money for the same quality.
I'm still waiting for LCD to catch up.
I just recently had to get rid of my 21" Eizo drafting monitor. It was 12 years old and the tubes were rapidly burning out.
I remember the good old days when Eizo Nanao's, Viewsonic P series, and Sony Trinitrons were common fare for pc stores to carry. I miss those days. Best Buy now has exactly 2 in stock CRT monitors, and Fry's has 3. Only one of each is over 17". (the same model no less.) It just happens to be the Samsung SyncMaster 997df...
My local stores; Compucare, Hard Drives NW, PC Stop, PC Club, etc. no longer carry any CRT's over 17" and nothing high end or decent. They reccomend buying online. Ugh. Idiots~
I am using a 19" LCD model from Formac (www.formac.com). As the name suggests, these are designed for the Macintosh, but take a DVI connection so if you have a video card with DVI output (most video cards only have VGA outputs, but higher end ones often have DVI) you can get a monitor with an excellent design, unlike the typical PC crap. I combined this with a home built PC inside an AMS e-Cube (http://www.amselectronics.com/Produc...EG65/EG65.html) for a decent looking system, for a PC.
I take it you don't ever do any work at high resolution.
21-inch Viewsonic flat dispaly for my PC, 15-inch LCD display on my PowerBook I wish I had one of those Apple Cinema displays.. it nearly doubles the price of buying a G5.
Philips 17", no big deal to me to have a nice display..
I have a Sony G520P(20" CRT monitor and a Dell 2001FP(20.1" LCD display running concurrently. Both have strong points and weak points. For text, I don't see any reason to use CRT. However, for graphics, I would still use CRT hands down.
You have a 17 foot monitor?
