    get another 17" crt

    or if u want LCD, make sure it is 24bit(16.7million colours), not 18bit (16.2million colours)

    Definitely a crt if you have a budget. Think you might be able to get a 19 inch with that price.

    2 reasons:

    1. lcd at that price range has much lower contrast (unless you spend more money for the 1:500 ratio) i.e. most crt can show better range of tones with higher contrast ratio

    2. 15" normally has a resolution of 1024 x 768 which is very limited.

    Buy lcd unless space is a concern for you. If most of your stuffs need photo editing, the crt is the choice with your budget.

    Sharp, Samsung, Viewsonic.

    I wouldn't want to recommend Philips as many around me who purchase it facing many problems now.

    If $$ is not an issue to you, consider Eizo!
