    i'll go for a LCD coz i needed more space and much lesser power consumption than a CRT.

    CRTs are now very cheap but if u're taking abt the higher ends or the much larger size CRT then it's still super ex.

    Eizo ColorEdge CG19 / CG21 is pretty good actually.. but dunno where it can be found locally.

    On the other hand, i think not too long ago geoyip wanted to get a Dell LCD monitor.. can't remember exactly which model but shd still be able to do a search.. He mentioned to me saying the price was the main attraction as it's not too ex, given the size of that LCD monitor..

    watever the case.. at the end of the day if u're able to justify ur cost, u're still on the safe side..

    u can try the contact numbers stated at the website and find out if the monitor is available locally, if it is, then u can also try asking them the retail price.

    Not practical. Not to mention his calibration hardware will require the Eye One Publisher/Photo in order to calibrate the display.

    His Eye-One Display can only calibrate CRT/Monitors.

    For me... non of the above.

    LCD can never display what a CRT can... choose any 21" professional CRT for serious work!

    DELL 24 inch.....you can't go wrong with that. Check out the inputs.

    Apple cinema display is nice but...........the price does not justify for a 23 inch display.
