    I run my LCD at 60Hz, don't see any difference between 60 and 75 to be honest.

    I got a 19" LG Studioworks 900B CRT monitor, and that thing has to DIE before someone pries it away from me... 1600x1200 @85 Hz, refresh close to 0.5 ms - show me a LCD that can do that. Also I run a Hitachi Superscan Elite 751 CRT monitor, also 19", but that thing is over 10 years old... works well though, but colours are a bit off, look a lot nicer than the LG monitor IMO.

    i agree, LCD's still have some way to go before they match the spec list of a CRT, hopefully by the end of the year they'll get there (fingers crossed).

    Samsung Syncmaster 245B here (24" Wide). No dead pixels, no nonsense. It's a nice display, although I would like a bit better viewangle when you look from underneath (I have a wallmount).

    Just ordered another one, just like it, so my gf can watch her shows on it instead of on my monitor (yes, she banishes me from the PC to watch "Top Model")

    I am using a stinkin beige Dell P991, 19", at 1280x1024 at 85Hz. :P I love this thing. Trinitrons rock. but when it comes time, I probably will go to an LCD unless OLEDs become cheaper by then. :P

    Gateway XHD3000 which is a 30inch LCD with Extreme HD 2560 x 1600 / two Hanns G 28" Full HD 1920 x 1200 / The 30inch was a good match for the Two GTX280s. one 28" is used with two GTX260s and the other 28" is used with a HD4870X2.

    Gareth I got those same speakers LOL

    I use an Iiyama 24" LCD @ 60Hz 1920x1200 or my 50" plasma @ 60Hz 1366x768

    Used to have two 21" CRT's but threw em out becasuse they weighed a TON and took up too much space.

    I got 1 Hanns G 28" Full HD 1920 x 1200 at 60Hz

    I had a Dell 20.1 inch at 75Hz before this one but I don't notice any difference at all between them in refresh times.
    and Damn Proud of it!

    I have an Acer AL506 15" LCD. It's good for general computing, and mine is 5 years old. It's small though =(

    my monitor..im sorry not just because i own it but it the sexiest and highest quality/performance monitor for the price hands down makes your setup up looking stunning and the picture is crystal clear and if you have a smasung lcd tv you know there on there "A" game....
