    Many graphics designer I know would choose to go for the CRTs for their work. Personally using LCDs nowadays and find that the colours don't necessarily lose out to CRTs anymore.

    I've no regrets switching to a LCD from my Sony 15" CRT just a few months back, I get more space, less heat generated and colours are as good as what I see off CRTs. Near accurate, not too bad for a LCD already.

    Would have gotten another Sony 19" CRT in replacement for my dying 15" but I can't find stock and LCDs were mostly in the shops, so I took a gamble, picked up a 24bit colour LCD and that's it.

    My images are done now off LCD,

    Both can perform well, but it's a matter of choosing the right display.

    you might want to try Quick Gamma.

    it's a calibrate by vision program. Allows you to calibrate for varying levels of gamma.

    I am so tempted to get a 17" LCD as nowaday LCD monitor prices dropped so much. My old 17" CRT monitor is S$1200!!! - I bought when I was in NS time.

    Missed this. I'm using a Samsung 910T LCD. Think it's going for 860+ @ SLS and 888 at funan. I bought mine from South Asia at Funan earlier this year (think before Dec).

    Errmm.. depends on which type of CRT monitors u bought.. A good 17" Multi-sync flatscreen CRT is still very expensive... The cheap $200 Flatscreen CRT is not necessary very good as there are still distortion in the picture which is corrected by a filter placed in front of the screen. Get the true flatscreen is the best! heh!

    LCD is also good enuff for normal use if u do not need the critical details the CRT can provide.

    In short! Get whichever ones based on yr needs.. and get them calibrated too!

    Also, a lot of LCD panels, even some higher end ones, are far too bright. And when you turn down their brightness, contrast goes south.

    I'd still go with CRTs for now, despite the fact I am looking forward to the day that LCDs become good enough.

    And BTW, if someone can tell me who sells NEC (Mitsubishi) CRTs retail, I'd be very happy to hear from you. These dopes don't seem to like to reply to enquiry emails.

    Bear in mind though that CRT monitor projection tubes/guns will start to wear out after a few years...

    LCD... Only Apple cinema display stand out from the rest... in term of accuracy.

    If want to save money.... CRT still get better colour consistancy, when in different room temperature.. LCD user will know what I meaned.

    Anyway using Plasma screen? Hehe.

    I think I saw on papers that there is a really low-priced 2nd-hand warehouse of LCD/CRT monitors.
