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.

Yup... Except that most of the 24bit panels... well... Are not stocked items and usually have a 5 to 6 weeks lead time..
