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.
