    CRT for sure. The LCD screen of my notebook show me something else which is not accurate.

    How come 5000k? The whites will look very yellow leh...... So far i think most FDi labs set white point at 6400?

    6400 is actually a bit yellow already...

    Buck for buck, CRT still offers greater value for money, not to mention better displays and contrast. CRT can also offer higher resolutions that can help maximise your editing workspace.

    Of course, unless you can afford the Apple Cinema or Studio displays, CRT is IMHO better.

    I just bought 2 used Sony Trinitron E200 17" monitors and placed them side by side for dual display. Clean clear display, extermely sharp, at less than the cost of a single 15" LCD (~$250). These are really great CRT monitors for colour work, and at max resolution of 1600x1024 at 75Hz, it's a real bang for the buck.

    Oh and did I mention, Trinitron monitors last for heck of a long time. My old MAG XJ700T (which has a trinitron tube) turns 7 this year. It still functions well.
